Being a homeowner can be a lot of work – especially if you don’t take the time to do these essential projects throughout the year, particularly after a hard winter. Here are a few projects that will make home life easier this summer.
Clean out gutters & downspouts.
With more rain on the way, unclogging these waterways ahead of time can help keep debris like twigs and leaves from damaging the joints and causing leaks.
Activate your sprinkler system.
A professional can help check for leaks and water pressure issues that may have developed during a winter freeze.
Organize the Garage.
Not only will you feel better knowing your winter and holiday decorations are safely stored and organized for next year – you’ll have an opportunity to take inventory of your stored belongings and decide what needs to be donated to charity and what needs to be replaced.
You’ll need all the essentials to perk your lawn up -- fertilizer, mulch, new plants, trees, and weed killer. Does the lawnmower work? Do the garden hoses leak? Don’t wait until the day of a planned project to discover these needs!
Texas is known for long summer droughts followed by freezes in the winter which causes concrete to crack. Foundation cracks happen and are normal, but a professional will know whether it is significant or negligible.
