Home Maintenance Tasks to Complete in March

by The Rullo Team

Did you know that March is the best time to complete home maintenance tasks? With the weather warming and before the spring showers of April begin, this month allows you to get your Fox River Valley  home in tip top shape. Have your home looking and working its very best for the rest of the year and prevent any costly future damage by completing these tasks this March!


Check out the state of your roof.

With the snow and ice cleared from your roof, it is the perfect time to safely check its condition before spring showers. Look for missing or loose shingles and check for cracks in the flashing or vent pipes. If you want to ensure that nothing gets overlooked, consider hiring a professional roof contractor as many offer inspections for free. If there is an issue, be prepared to pay for repairs to be made to prevent any damage to your home in the coming months.


Clear out the gutters.

Throughout the winter, debris has been accumulating in your gutter system. It is time to clear them out of all leaves, branches, and anything else you may find in them to make sure that they can properly keep rainwater away from your home’s siding and foundation. After cleaning them, consider adding gutter guards so that you do not need to continue to complete this task into the spring.


Freshen up the siding.

Your home’s siding takes a beating during the winter. You can easily clean off any dirt that has accumulated and extend the life of your siding with a brush and soapy water. Your home will be ready to sparkle in the spring sun.


Take care of your decks.

Just as debris accumulates in your gutters, it also accumulates between boards in your deck. Clear out leaves and branches to prevent potential rot. Also, look for any loose boards and repair as necessary. After clearing and repairing, use a cleaning product to help return your deck to its former beauty.


Inspect your home’s driveway and walkways.

The lifespan of asphalt and concrete decreases with each winter due to snow and ice. Cracks begin to form in the material due to the cycle of freezes and thaws. You can prevent future damage by adding a sealant to any cracks that you find. Consider hiring a professional for any large cracks and holes that you find.


Get your yard ready for spring.

Although it might not look like it, spring is right around the corner. March is the perfect time to get your yard prepped so it looks its very best once the warmer weather is here for good. Clear your lawn of large branches. Give the grass an initial cutting to get it ready. Prune rose bushes in mid-March so that they can properly grow after the last frost and add some beautiful color to the outside of your home.


Clean your air conditioner condenser.

It will soon be time to keep your home cool with the air conditioner. Make sure that it can work properly when you need it by cleaning it out now. Clean out debris and dust that you find in the AC condenser outside. If you want to ensure a thorough cleaning and prevent any damage to the condenser, hire a professional to take care of this task for you.


Add caulking to doors and windows.

The cold winter weather can damage caulking around doors and windows. Inspect these areas for any cracks which can lead to water entering your home in the spring. Fix the damages with a high quality, latex caulk that is made for exterior use.
