Spring is here, which means it’s time for spring cleaning. Don’t forget your home’s exterior when putting together your spring cleaning and maintenance checklist. From installing gutter guards to washing your siding, there are many tasks worth prioritizing. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota shares some tips.

The Roof

Seasonal inspections are a must to ensure the performance and longevity of your roofing system. On average, a typical asphalt shingle roof can last up to 20-30 years. You can add a couple more years to your roof’s lifespan by keeping up with all its maintenance requirements. Talk to a professional roofing contractor about a maintenance plan so you never miss out on any important service visits.

The Gutters

Your gutters perform a critical task in protecting your home against water-related damage. During the winter, your gutters were exposed to strong winds, extreme temperatures, snow and ice–all of which may have taken a toll and weakened your system. One of the best ways to protect your gutters and ensure they function properly at all times is installing effective gutter guards. This will prevent blockages, ensuring your gutters can function as intended.

The Walls

Clogged gutters can lead to water damage on your siding. Some materials are more resistant to this type of problem than others. Regardless of your siding material, it’s best to have your walls professionally cleaned at the start of spring. This doesn’t just boost your home’s curb appeal–it also helps ensure your siding is in prime condition.
