Home maintenance should be a constant effort, and even having a simple seasonal checklist can prove helpful, allowing you to resolve issues before they become huge.
As you survey the exterior of your home, start by checking the roof first. If there are gutters, check if there are paint problems in any area or you see signs of mold. Write any issues caused by overhanging tress limbs. Check ducts, vents and penetrations for sealing and caulking. Gaps can bring cold air in your home; bigger holes can bring pests inside your home.
Take second look around the exterior of your office, and pay special attention to the trim around the doors and windows. You are second time checking for the obvious signs of old materials, peeling, cracks, small holes, mold growth and discoloration that needs maintenance and repair.
