Takin’ It Outside: The Home Exterior Maintenance Checklist

Spring has officially sprung, which usually means it’s time to get outside and participate in your favorite warmer-weather activities. But in an age of government shutdowns and social distancing, some of these pursuits may be put on indefinite hold. That said, there are still plenty of ways to be productive and take advantage of more time at home! Tackling preventative maintenance tasks now will not only boost your curb appeal, but they can also avert costly repairs or replacements in the future.

Inspect Outdoor Decks and Pavers

As the family (and eventual guests) start retreating outdoors, it’s imperative to make sure your deck is up to snuff. Check your deck carefully for loose boards or components that are worn, damaged, rusted, or rotten. Check out the floor of your deck, stair treads, as well as posts, beams, and railings. This process should also go for other steps, pavers, and handrails around your property.

Take a Look at Your Roof

Harsh winter conditions can wreak havoc on any roof. A missing shingle can cause leaks and drainage problems that may result in mold, rotted wood, or worse. Look at your roof for signs of damage or anything that needs to be repaired or replaced. If such conditions exist, give Philly Roofing a call. We offer emergency roof repairs in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas for when you can’t let a dire problem get any worse.

Have Your Siding Cleaned

Mold, mildew, dirt, and grime accumulate on all siding types, even the ones generally regarded as low-maintenance. There are different cleaning methods for vinyl, composite, and other synthetic materials vs. wood. Your first instinct may be to take a high-pressure power washer around the whole perimeter. This may do more harm than good, especially when you take into account windows, planters, gutters, and other fixtures that up the demand for a skilled set of hands and dependable resources to get the job done right. When you need a professional touch, call on Philly Roofing’s siding services!
