Here are your Monthly Home Maintenance Tips for April:
General walk through: Check gutters and downspouts for water back-up. Make sure water properly drains away from foundation. Check for water leaks in basement.
Change/clean air filter in furnace. Check hot water heater for proper ventilation.
Check/add salt to water softener. Check smoke and fire alarms.
Spring yard clean-up: Remove dead grass, plants and shrubbery. Trim tree branches near roof.
Check lawn: Seed or sod where necessary. Apply fertilizer and crabgrass control. Do not use on new grass seed.
Change storms/screens and open combination storms where desired. Check screens for holes and repair where necessary.
Begin garden and exterior planting when the ground temperature permits it.
By all accounts, it’s been a rough winter. Crews are just now starting to fix all the potholes! If Old Man Winter did a number on your driveway, check out today’s video from Today’s Home Remodeler TV featuring DRS Asphalt Paving.
