As much of the US recovers from one of the most severe winters in history (not so bad here in WNC, but…), it is important to inspect your home for damage & plan for home maintenance, repair & remodeling projects.  The following tips from NAHB Remodelers can return  your home to top condition after the winter season.  “Winter weather can damage homes in ways that aren’t easily visible,” says NAHB Chair Paul Sullivan.  “Home owners should protect their investment and hire a professional remodeler to repair or replace damaged components now, before spring storms create more problems.

  • Inspect your roof
  • Clean & repair gutters
  • Look for leaks
  • Clear exterior drains
  • Inspect siding
  • Check window & door seals
  • Patch cracks
  • Paint the exterior
  • Inspect the HVAC
  • Check your home’s grading

Remodeling or repairing your home can require that your home be open to the elements, and companies may have a backlog of work due to the length and severity of the winter season.  Choose your repair and renovation projects for the year ahead and start planning now.
