If you fail to properly maintain your home and property, your home insurance may have reason to deny home insurance claims you make. As such, it is extremely important that you properly maintain your home and property. Here are a few home maintenance tips that should be done in the spring to help you with your home maintenance.
Have Your Roof Inspected and Repaired
Once the snow has thawed away and the roof is no longer slick, it is important that you have your roof inspected. If there is anything wrong with the roof, repairs should be made. This helps to prevent leaks from the roof from occurring and causing damage within your home.
Have Your Trees Trimmed
Trees need to be properly trimmed after the wet and cold winters. Trimming trees helps to remove dead growth. Damaged or diseased trees and limbs can fall off suddenly and unexpectedly, causing damage to people and property. Properly maintaining your trees helps to prevent this issue.
Repair Damaged Concrete and Asphalt
Lastly, the winter can be rough on your concrete and asphalt surfaces. It can cause cracks or holes that people can trip on or that can continue to grow. Once the ground has thawed out, repair any damage to your concrete and asphalt surfaces, such as your foundation, patios, walkways and driveway.
