Home Safety Tips for Spring - Exterior

Is your home ready for spring? As your experienced team of real estate agents in Eldon, MO we want to help give you tips to prepare your home for spring. As you may have noticed, last week's blog focused on Home Safety Tips for Spring - Interior. This week we are honing in on things you can do to make the exterior of your home safer this spring!

Inspect Your Roof

Take time to have your roof inspected this spring. Ensure there is no damage to your shingles or condition of your roof from the harsh winter weather. Before the rainy season kicks in, be sure to make any needed repairs. Quick repairs to your roof can help to prevent further damage to your home.

Clean Out Gutters

After the trees shed their leaves in the fall and other winter debris, it's important to ensure your gutters are clean in the early spring. This can help to sweep water away and properly drain when it rains. A clogged gutter can lead to overspill and potentially cause damage to your home.

Make Repairs to Deck

Now that spring is here, you may already be making plans to spend time outside. Be sure your deck is in tip-top shape. Check for popped nails and splinters that can cause foot injuries. Also, make sure your railings are secure and safe. Adults and children may lean on your rails or push on them - you won't want a spindle to come lose in this situation.

Pick up Twigs

You may have limbs and twigs that have fallen out of the trees during the winter freezes we experienced in mid-Missouri. Take time to pick up these sticks. Your friends and family may trip on these obstacles - especially if there are small children running around your yard.

Repair Fence

If you have a fence around your yard be sure to inspect it all the way around. Make sure there are no holes and that all posts are secure. This can help to protect animals and kids as they play in your yard. Securely keep all parties inside your yard by double checking your fence this spring.

You're ready to get started now! After reading this week's blog, you can start making improvements to the exterior of your home to make it safer.
