Show Some TLC to Your Home's Exterior This March

by Michelle Reedy and Alan Swider

The exterior of your Somerset County home takes a beating during the winter. Snow, ice, and wind damage can lead to future problems with your home. As the weather continues to warm up, March is the perfect time to examine the outside of your home and repair any issues you find. Completing these home maintenance tasks this month will have your house prepared to handle spring showers and keep you comfortable throughout the rest of the year. Check out our list of places to show a little love this March to your home’s exterior.

  • Roof

    • Look for loose or missing shingles. Inspect vent pipes and flashing for cracks and other damage. Hire a professional to make repairs as soon as possible, if necessary.

  • Gutters

    • Remove all the natural debris and leaves that have accumulated in the gutters so that water can be properly directed away from your home. Add gutter guards to avoid the need to complete this task again next month.

  • Siding

    • Wash off the winter’s dirt on your home with a long brush and warm, soapy water to give it a fresh look before spring.

  • Windows and Doors

    • Check out all the caulking around windows and doors. Apply a high quality, latex, exterior caulk to areas where the caulk has worn thin or cracked.

  • Decks

    • Remove debris and leaves from in between your deck’s boards. Fix any loose boards that you find. Make the deck look new again with a good cleaning.

  • Walkways and Driveway

    • Check the asphalt or concrete around your house for cracks caused by the winter weather. Add a sealant to minor cracks or hire a professional to fix the larger issues.

  • Yard

    • Pick up branches and sticks on the lawn before giving it an initial mowing. Prune flower bushes and other landscaping so that they have the chance to properly grow this spring.

  • Air Conditioner Condenser

    • Remove dust and debris from inside your AC condenser so that it can run properly during those hot summer months. Consider hiring a professional to do this task for you as they can give the condenser the most thorough cleaning without causing any damage to the unit.
