Summer Home Maintenance Checklist

Summer Home Maintenance Checklist


Summer weather and longer days make it easier to inspect, repair, and improve your home. Regular upkeep will keep your home looking beautiful and help prevent costly repairs down the road. Tackle our summer home maintenance checklist and make the most of your home inside and out this season:

1. Clean Gutters & Downspouts
Gutters and downspouts play a crucial role in directing water away from your home. Clear debris from gutters and downspouts, check for damage and ensure proper drainage. Summer storms can cause irreversible damage to your gutters and downspouts if left unmaintained. 

2. Check the Roof & Siding 
Your home's roofing and siding are its first line of defence against the elements. Inspecting them during the summer can help identify issues before they become major problems. Look for missing or damaged shingles, inspect the flashing around chimneys and vents, and remove any moss or algae from the roof. Inspect your siding for cracks or gaps and repair them if necessary. 

3. Maintain Your Deck & Patio
Ensure your deck or patio is in good condition for the outdoor entertaining season ahead. Inspect for damage, such as loose boards or stones, power wash all outdoor surfaces and reseal or stain exposed wood to protect against moisture and UV damage.  

4. Inspect Windows & Doors
Improve your home's energy efficiency this summer by sealing cracks and gaps around windows and external doors. Replace weatherstripping, or if damage is too extensive, consider upgrading your windows and doors. Don’t forget to give your windows a good clean, including any screens.

5. Service Your HVAC System
Your HVAC system works hard during the summer months to keep your home cool. Schedule a professional service to ensure it runs efficiently and reliably. At a bare minimum, take the opportunity to replace the air filter.
