Summer Exterior Home Maintenance

summer home maintenance

As the weather gets warmer and we look forward to sunny days on the deck or in the yard, we’re reminded it’s also time to go through our summer home maintenance checklist! Keeping up with exterior maintenance is not only critical to your home’s long term health, but it can help protect your home from elements and help keep moisture, pets, rot and decay out of your home. Routine home checks and maintenance can prevent major damages and save you money in the long run.

Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest also comes with its challenges from the elements all year long. Your home exterior keeps the structure and safety of your home intact, and requires special maintenance.

Here are a few exterior maintenance tips to consider:

1. Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Having your gutters and downspouts cleaned early in the season can also help prevent damage from heavy rains. Gutters and downspouts should be clean and running free.

2. Reseal Exterior Woodwork and Decks

Wood decks, fences, railings, trellises, pergolas, and other outdoor structures will last longer and stay in better condition if they’re stained or resealed every year or two. Take this opportunity to make any needed repairs to woodwork as well.

3. Paint the Exterior

If you’re planning to repaint your home’s exterior this year, spring is a good time to set it up. Want to paint but can’t decide on a color? Explore your town and snap pictures of house colors you like, browse photos on Pinterest or work with a color consultant to find the right hue.

4. Inspect Driveways and Paths

Take a walk around your property to look for damage to walkways, paths, and driveways, and schedule repairs as needed.

5. Power Washing

A regular power wash will get rid of annoying weeds, as well as the dirt they need to grow in. With regular power washing, you can prevent cracks and untimely aging, so your concrete surface lasts for much longer.

With projects as large and as important as these, you need a professional!

The services Equipped offers includes interior and exterior painting, power-washing for siding, decks and driveways, and other exterior maintenance including deck and fence refinishing.

As a 5-star rated business on Google with satisfied customer testimonials, we would love the opportunity to serve you this Summer!
