Is Your Home Ready for Spring?

Here is a list of repairs, additions and adjustments to make to your home in order to get the most out of spring!

5 Spring Home Improvement Tips:
Inspect and fix your roof. Fallen branches, cracks caused by ice – springtime is a great time to make sure things are in order no matter what winter threw at you.

Evict winter guests. Do a thorough inspection to make sure no animals have burrowed into your house over the winter.

Grow your dinner. Plant a few items that you and your family love to eat in the summertime.

Green your grass. Find the dead spots in your lawn and seed them. Use the spring rains to your advantage.

Prepare outdoor spaces for summer. Spring is best for beginning any larger scale projects like the construction of patios, decks and swimming pools for your outdoor living spaces.
