Summer Home Maintenance 

I think we can officially say, it’s summertime! With the heat and the long beautiful days, it’s time to look at what you can do to put your home in tip-top shape.

CHECK FOR INSECTS. When it starts to get warm out, the bugs also come out. Termites, ants, bees, and cockroaches all make an appearance. You can deter this by setting off a bug bomb or by meeting with your local pest control service.
REVIEW YOUR SECURITY. There is usually an increase in home burglaries over the summer because families are often gone for long vacations. Make sure before you go, check your fences, doors and window locks. There are security systems for a variety of price ranges, so find which one works best for you, but be sure to take the time to invest in one. It will notify you of any suspicious activity around and in your home. 

REPAIR YOUR ROOF. When the weather is clear, that’s the best time to try to repair any issues with your roof. If you do roof repair during a dry season, this gives your shingles longer time to seal and create a stronger barrier before the rainy and winter seasons. This is worth looking into a professional service to give you some quotes.

Take the time to take care of your investment. Homes thrive when they are maintained.
