Warm Weather Checklist

The days get longer and your thoughts turn to the outdoors. Before you get carried away by summer holiday planning, take a few minutes and let our warm weather checklist remind you of those house care projects.

  • Check the wood siding and trim for signs of deterioration; clean, replace, or refinish as necessary. For vinyl siding, check for cracks and breaks, replace if possible. For stone cladding, check the mortar to repair as necessary
  • Clean the eaves to ensure that spring time rain water goes where it is supposed to.
  • Have well water tested for quality and safety
  • Turn off the humidifier on your furnace or change the HRV to the summer setting.
  • Check fences and deck railings, replace or repair as necessary.
  • Disconnect your dryer duct, vacuum the lint from the duct and the dryer hood outside your house.
  • Check and repair window screens
  • Check and replace the caulking sealing the different exterior  service pipes to your siding (dyer vent, furnace vent, HRV, hot water tank, sump pump)
  • Check all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Clean the outside of your windows to let that summer sun shine in.
  • Clean up the yard and the garden, remove any debris that accumulated over the winter.

It is now time to make sure that all outdoor taps are turned off. remove hoses, empty them of water and coil them up for the iwinter.

Check your windows - brush down your bug screens so you can maimize the light coming in your windows over the winter.  Clean the window tracks of bugs and dry leaves so the windows slide smoothly. Make sure they can lock, this will minimize the amoutn fo heat loss over teh winter.
