Are you ready for spring’s warmer weather? If so, you definitely aren’t alone here in Macon.
Many people spend the days before the weather starts warming up trying to decide how they want to spend the Saturday and Sunday afternoons. DIY projects are a popular option.
While you’re considering new paint colors and planning your landscaping, think about adding a few of these projects to your list. They can help protect you from the dangers of thunderstorms.
These steps will help you be sure your home is as ready as it can be for the hazards of spring storms.
Preparing Your Home for a New Season
Why not add these items to your to-do list for the upcoming warmer season?
Check your gutters for debris. Clean gutters are vital. They allow water to move the right way around your house. If your gutters are clogged, they can cause water damage.
If you have a sump pump, check it sooner rather than later. If your home needs one of these to keep water out of your basement, then it’s a good idea to be sure it’s working before you need it.
Check your home for other common storm damage hazards. Check for overhanging tree limbs, unsecured grills, and furniture or gazebos. Cut tree limbs that hang over your roof or garage and secure anything you can.
Inspect your roof for issues. You want to be sure your roof is in good shape if a storm starts hitting. Check for things like missing shingles and signs of leaks. Repair them to keep your home safer.
