Tip number 1. Clean leaves out of the gutter.
Your home’s gutters protect the foundation, prevent erosion, protect landscaping, and limit mold growing on your home. Gutters allow water to drain away from your home and keep water from pooling near sensitive areas that could lead to costly repairs. Leaves collect in gutters clogging up the drainage systems. It is best practice to clean them at the beginning of the year.
Tip number 2. Trim the tree branches.
Texas Springtime winds are chaotic during spring months. Heavy wind gusts can take a serious toll on the trees around your home. Due to the preceding winter month tree branches die or just have not gotten their strength back yet. Taking the time now to inspect your trees and remove any branches that could be problematic or dangerous if they were to come down during a storm with high winds might just save the day…and you a lot of money.
Tip number 3. Walk-thru of the attic.
Another important task you can do to ensure your roof is prepared for spring is to check the attic. By going walking around the inside of your attic, you can get a decent look int the condition of your roof. Be on the lookout for signs that water has been getting inside your home. This can include streaking paint or wet insulation, among other things.
