2022 Spring Exterior Inspection

3/15/2022 (Permalink)

Spring is just a few days away and that means that outdoor weather will soon be upon us! Take advantage of the nicer weather to do a yearly check-up of the exterior of your home. The harsh winter months can leave your exterior worse for wear and cause all sorts of problems. 

Your foundation should be one of the first sections to be inspected. Cold winter weather, along with snow or rain, can lead to new cracks in the foundation of your property or even cause old ones to grow. As moisture makes its way inside and freezes, it expands, causing further cracking to form. Depending on the severity of these cracks, water could potentially seep into the lower levels and cause water damage.

The next stop for a springtime inspection should be any outdoor deck, patio, or porch. Having friends and family over during gorgeous warm days is fun, but not when your deck is a disaster waiting to happen. Look out for things like broken or rotting wood planks, exposed or loose nails/screws, and even unsecured railings. Any of these problems have the potential to cause injury if left unattended!

Property inspections can be boring and even thought of as useless, but it's important to take note of possible issues and fix them before they cause damage or injury
