Keeping up with your house and the changing seasons in Minnesota can be a busy job. Below are a few items to check as the summer is coming to an end.
Home maintenance idea #1: Check your siding for any damaged or loose areas. Openings in siding can be the perfect spot for bugs or woodpeckers to settle into.
Home maintenance idea #2: Examine your foundation. If there are significant cracks that have been present for a while, call your local foundation specialist and request a free inspection. They may recommend a procedure to bond the cracks together. Cracked foundation can result in water leakage into the basement.
Home maintenance idea #3: Continuing proper lawn maintenance is important. Walk around your yard and pick up any branches or debris that could interfere with your next lawn cut. If you have small rocks around the exterior of your foundation surrounding your house, check that any have been kicked into the grass and put them back so a lawnmower doesn’t run over them.
Home maintenance idea #4: Pay attention to your grill! When was the last time that it got a good cleaning and refilled the propane? Taking the time to do this now means that your next grill-out will be even more enjoyable!
