Home Maintenance List

Found this home maintenance list today, thought I would share. More is on our blog at

Foundation and Decking:

  • Twice a year, check your home?s foundation for cracks and sign of water damage.
  • Extend gutter downspouts to direct moisture away from your home. Point for us!
  • Every year inspect your deck for signs of rot, damage, termite infestation and for nail pops. Clean the surface annually as well.


  • Clean and repair gutters twice a year. Point for us!
  • Every fall and spring check your roof to ensure it is in good repair. Point for us (we do this when we clean the gutters)!
  • Use caulk and other sealants to repair seals around doors, windows and pipes.
  • Clean your siding every two years and check for any cracks to repair as needed.
  • Every season check for drafts around your windows and doors and ensure that you have tight-fitting weather strips.
  • Lubricate hinges on doors once a year.
