Is Your Home Ready for the Spring Thaw?

It is true spring is on the horizon and we will be able to emerge from our winter hideaways and enjoy new smells, above freezing temperatures and the tasks of getting your home ready for the warmer months. Spring is only a few weeks away. To make things easier for you we have compiled a simple checklist to ensure that your home is in top-notch shape for the season change.

Your Outdoor Spring Thaw Maintenance Checklist

Is Your Roof Ready For Warmer Weather?

The substantial snow last winter makes it likely that you had to use a roof rake at some point.  Be sure to check your residential asphalt roof for missing, cracked or broken shingles. If you notice buckled or curling shingles, it is time to consider a roof replacement. Snow, ice and harsh cold can cause the granules on your shingles to be damaged. Check around any chimneys, vents or skylights for loose flashing or deteriorated rubber seals that can cause leaking.before roof

Are Your Concrete Slabs Ready For Spring?

Inspect your concrete slab of your home’s foundation for cracks or movement. All exterior slabs, except pool decks, should drain away from your home. If you notice any changes fill cracks with concrete filler or silicone caulk.  Any low areas next to your foundation fill with compacted soil to prevent flooding and insect breeding grounds.

Are Your Home’s Gutters In Good Working Condition?

During the winter, water can freeze within your rain gutters, which expands and can cause damage. Inspect your downspouts for any debris blocking the flow of water and make sure they are pointing away from the foundation of your home.tree in gutter

Is Your Air Conditioner Ready For Warmer Weather?

Have a qualified heating & cooling specialist out to clean your air conditioning unit by cleaning the coils and change the filter so you are ready for peak season.

How Did Your Windows & Doors Fare Over The Winter?

Check the caulking around all doors and windows. Put up your screens and inspect for any damage. Give your residential windows a good washing.double hung windows

Do Your Hoses & Outdoor Faucets Need Attention?

Check your hoses and faucets outside for freeze damage. Turn the water on and place your thumb over the opening. If you can stop the flow of water, it may be likely that the pipe inside your home could be damaged and need replacement.

"I contracted Lindus Construction for the installation of LeafGuard® Brand Gutters on my home. Brandon, the sales rep, did an excellent job of explaining the features and benefits of the product. Rob promptly scheduled our installation. Installers, Max & Lucas, were friendly and worked diligently in the cold weather. I experience the ultimate peace of mind knowing that installation is backed by a lifetime workmanship guarantee. Several of my family members have also used Lindus Construction and they have all had positive encounters. Great job, Lindus team!"
