6 Step Spring Maintenance Checklist for Your Home

Want your home to be in tip-top shape this summer?

Do you want your home to shine from its location on your block?

Are you looking for some spring projects to do around the house?

Now that the weather is warming up, you may be itching to do a little spring cleaning! Ensure that the exterior of your home is in good shape for the summer months. A new paint job may be necessary. If you carefully examine the exterior of your home, you’ll be more aware of potential future repairs. Don’t wait for a problem to arise like chipping paint, wood rot or stained siding.

Here’s a checklist of things you should do to inspect your home’s exterior:

  1. Power wash your home to get rid of dirt, mold, and mildew for a clean fresh shine.
  2. Examine your shutters and front door for peeling and chipped paint. Patch, repair, and repaint these surfaces.
  3. Wood, vinyl and aluminum siding can wear over time. Power wash, repaint or stain your siding to maintain a healthy appearance.
  4. Stucco can crack, deteriorate, and carry mold. It may be time to clean and repair your stucco wall covering.
  5. Inspect your home for wood rot damage. You may need to hire an expert carpenter to make the necessary repairs.
  6. Clean, repair, and repair your outdoor patio furniture.

Not only will inspecting the exterior of your home for repairs save you money, it also makes you a smarter homeowner. Why wouldn’t you want to inspect the exterior of your home? Everyone wants to save time and money, and you can too!

Let Shadow set the mood,” says Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director of Benjamin Moore.

According to Angie’s List, “pressure washing is an art!” It’s important to let a professional handle power washing your home, as things can go wrong when you’re not a seasoned professional.

Power washing with high pressure upwards of 3,000 - 4,000 psi can damage your home if you’re not careful, causing wood rot, holes in siding, busted windows, screens, and more! Power washing works best for your roof, gutters, deck, driveway, walkways, and stone features.

1.    Test the color in natural light, artificial light and at night.
2.    Prep the wall accordingly. Fill nail holes, sand rough spots, etc.
3.    Spot prime any dark marks so the surface is even and ready to paint.

Why You Should Paint Before You Move In!

Did you recently buy a new home?

Are you debating about whether to paint before or after you move in?

Do you want your move to go smoothly?

Then you should paint before you move in. Relieve the stress! If you paint first, you won’t have to worry about moving furniture during the process.
local painters ann arbor

According to the Paint Quality Institute, there are many other reasons why you should paint before you move in, including these:
  1. It’s easy now. You can move freely within a room to get the job done!
  2. It saves time. Painting can take a lot longer if you have to move heavy furniture.
  3. It can save you money! Many professional contractors can complete the work in half the time, which may lower your costs.
  4. It safeguards your furnishings. There’s always that chance of a paint spill on one of your prized possessions, so protect your belongings.
  5. It can simplify interior decorating. A fresh coat of paint can help you choose the right accents.
  6. It feels good. A fresh coat of paint can make your home seem cleaner, fresher, more welcoming, and best of all…more “yours.”  
If you’re considering having your house painted, our local painters in Ann Arbor can help you! Our reputation is “second to none” in business! Steve, the owner, is intense about perfection. He is consistently on site, making sure the job gets done to ensure that you’re 100-percent satisfied.
