TOP HOME MAINTENANCE TIPS FROM OUR PARTNER IN HOME INSPECTION: PILLAR TO POST

There’s no better time to give your home some love with a few simple maintenance projects. And no one knows better than The Agency’s home inspection partner, Pillar To Post. Getting the list underway may seem daunting, but it’s key to protecting your investment. Here are Pillar To Post’s top tips to get started:

1. Clear accumulated debris from gutters and make sure downspouts flow freely and direct water away from the foundation. Improper drainage can allow water into the crawl space or basement.

2. Check siding and trim for cracks, peeling or chipped paint, and general wear and tear. Have damaged areas repaired and repainted as needed for lasting protection.

3. Inspect patios and walkways for cracks and any loose bricks or pavers. These are tripping hazards that need to be corrected promptly.

4. Clean window screens and repair any damaged areas. Replace the screen material completely if the damage is extensive or the screen isn’t holding up to the elements.

5. Look around the property for damaged tree limbs and branches. If a large tree appears to be damaged, stay safe and call a professional to address any issues.

6. Inspect the irrigation system and fix any broken sprinkler heads and emitters. Also, check for overspray and adjust the system to prevent water waste.

Pillar To Post is here to give your home a top-notch inspection and provide you with valuable insight. Plus, you’ll get peace of mind knowing where your home stands and have the information you need to plan for the future. It’s quick, easy and convenient. Reach out to your agent to schedule your Pillar To Post home inspection.
