How to Get Your Home Ready for Spring?

Readying your home for spring

Are you ready for spring?

According to Punxsutawney Phil, spring is right around to corner. So why not get started this weekend with some easy ways to get your Howard County home ready for spring? Let’s check out some easy ways to get your spring rolling along!

Check the Outside

Checking the outside of your home is the best way to know what needs to be done. Look along the perimeter of your property as well as around your home. Check the make sure all of your lights and security measures are working and do not need to be replaced or fixed. If the winter storm has damaged your fence, spring is definitely the best time to fix it because someone enters your yard unannounced.

Refinishing your Porch

How does your porch look from the street? Or even from your front yard? A porch is made to look beautiful and to give your guests the warm greeting they deserve. With that in mind, it might be time to refinish the wood walk of your porch as well as the steps. While you have the stain out, think about breaking out some paint for your front door. Front doors are often overlooked for curb appeal, but they truly are important when sprucing up your home. Once it has been painted, polish the hinges and doorknobs for a beautiful shine. Placing a new door mat can also add a new spring feel to your home while leaving the dirt outside.

Have a Ball with Your Gutters

No one likes to clean their gutters, but unfortunately, it is a necessary evil. Cleaning your gutters can help rain from overflowing and a leak in your attic during the April showers. You should also check the drain pipe for blockages as well as where the water is draining too. It is important to have your drain pipes draining away from your home or they could leave into your foundation and basement.
