June is Here, and time to get in the swing of summer. These to-dos will help get your home and yard in shape so you can fully savor the months ahead.
- Paint your home’s exterior. The warm, dry weather makes summer the ideal time.
- Check for cracks in the foundation. Take a walk around your home and check for cracks in the foundation; even a small crack can let in water and pests.
- Clean the gutters and consider gutter guards. To keep your roof in good shape, dry brush and leaves need to be kept out of gutters and downspouts. Gutter guards can be installed over existing gutters to cut down or even eliminate cleaning.
- Repair and seal fences and garden structures. Keep wood fences, gates, arbors and pergolas in good repair for many years by adding a fresh coat of paint or clear wood sealant each summer.
