5 Winter Home Maintenance Projects You Should Do in the Middle of Summer
1. Check the roof and gutters
2. Clean the windows
“Window washing doesn’t just make your home look better and let the sunshine in,” Colbert says. “Neglecting to wash your windows regularly can cause your windows to wear out and break down faster.” And that's not a problem you want to discover when temps dip below freezing.
3. Repair the deck and clear vents
Decks and outdoor fixtures take a beating during spring storms, making summer virtually the only time to give them the TLC they need.
4. Give your exterior a fresh coat of paint
Keep in mind that repainting and staining don’t just make your home look nice—they also protect your home’s natural features from the wear and tear of rain and snow. And if you have any exterior surfaces that need a refresh, the hot and dry days of summer will be your best chance to get the job done.
5. Air out the house
“Sunlight is great when it comes to naturally straightening the fibers of different household items and furniture—not to mention any molds or mildew,” Cooper says.
