Inspecting your property for seasonal damage can help avoid storm damage and mounting repair costs
Springtime is here and it’s time to open the windows and get outdoors - use the sunshine and warmer weather to inspect for seasonal property damage. Winter can be hard on your property with frigid temperatures and snow and ice. The effects of winter are especially evident to the exterior of our homes and buildings, it’s important to get any damage repaired quickly, before Spring has the chance to storm.
Clean and Inspect the Exterior and Landscaping
While sprucing your yard, take the time to clear out overgrown bushes, dead plants, watering cans, garden tools and other items cluttering your landscape. Messy outdoor spaces and exterior structural systems like your roof and gutters can often lead to property damage, including slow water leaks or poor ventilation, cleaning up your surroundings will prevent accidents and increase the safety and security of your property.
- Examine the roof
Winter storms can take a toll on your roof, so be sure to inspect it thoroughly once spring rolls around. Look for things like missing, buckled, or otherwise damaged shingles, roof damage can lead to water and mold damage. Call a licensed and insured roofing expert to perform repairs, if you experience water intrusion or see visible signs of mold give SERVPRO a call for help.
- Check and clean gutters and downspout
Gutters and downspouts divert rainwater away from your roof and foundation, which is especially important when seasonal showers begin. Make sure all gutters are secure and unimpeded by debris. If your gutters seem damaged from the winter weather, make sure to replace them quickly.
- Exterior walls
A thorough inspection of the exterior walls will help to identify trouble spots. Paint is your house’s first defense, it works as an added layer of protection from the elements, helping to keep your home safe from weather damage, and insects.
- Check foundation and walkways
Fix and fill cracks in your foundation, porch and walkways, fluctuating temperatures and water can cause your foundation, porch or walkways to crack during the winter months. Reduce the opportunity for water damage by filling these cracks as soon as possible to prevent structural damage.
- Check outdoor faucets and plumbing
Now that spring is here, you’ll want to get started on gardening. If you turned outdoor faucets off and winterized pool plumbing to prevent frozen pipes in the winter, open them back up and check that they are all working properly.
- Trim tree and shrub overgrowth
