Now that it’s spring, most homeowners are probably planning a major overhaul in their homes; especially in homes whose exteriors were damaged after that hard-hitting winter. Because of that, we at Spicer Bros. Construction, the leading roofing, gutter, windows, doors, and siding contractor in Salisbury MD, would like to give you some tips on how to go about your annual spring cleaning tasks.
Check Your Roofing and Gutters
Let’s start off with the roof and gutters. Your roof and your gutters were probably one of the hardest hit last winter as they are your first line of defense against snow, hail, sleet, and rain. Because everybody definitely needs a good roof over their heads, make sure that your roof and gutters are still in good condition to protect you from the elements.
Inspect your roof and gutters. No, you don’t actually need to get a ladder and climb up your roof to do this; you can actually just walk around the house and give it a visual inspection. If you see any dark stains and/or mold on your roof, or if you see loose, broken, or missing shingles, then it’s time to call our roofing experts at Spicer Bros. Construction, and have your roof repaired immediately. The same thing applies with your gutters. If you see a part of the gutter hanging, bent, rusted, or broken, call our professionals to fix it. Just a word of caution, unless you have the training and the tools to properly and safely do the job, never ever attempt to fix the roof or gutters yourself as you might get injured or you might end up doing more damage instead of fixing your roof.
Check Your Siding
As for your siding in Lewes DE and the surrounding communities, take a quick look around the house and if you see some irregularities such as peeling, buckling, and cracking, call us at Spicer Bros. Construction and we will repair it for you.
Check Your Doors and Windows
The windows and doors are also a huge part of your home’s exterior inspection task this spring. Check out all the external doors, such as your entry doors and patio doors, for signs of damage. All of your windows will also need to be inspected for rotting or cracking frames as well as for leaks because this could lead to poor energy efficiency and increased energy consumption. If you see any problems with your doors or windows, you should contact us at Spicer Bros. Construction and we’ll fix them for you immediately.
You see, when it comes to the exterior components of your home, Spicer Bros. Construction is your one-stop shop. Just give us a call if you want to schedule a free, in-home, no obligation quote.
