Easy Checklist for Home Maintenance

Making a yearly trip to the doctor for a checkup can help prevent problems that can take a serious toll on your health, if left unchecked. The same principle applies to keeping your home in tip-top condition. Considering that the average amount spent on a home renovation or repair is $10,000, it’s important for homeowners to keep an eye on little problems, and fix them before they have an opportunity to develop into costly projects later. In many cases, keeping a regular schedule of seasonal checkups around your home can be a major factor in preventing many of the most common and expensive home repairs and renovations.

For example, a home’s driveway experiences a lot of wear and tear during the year. Although, many homeowners don’t pay attention to their driveway until it’s in such bad shape that a major renovation is needed. However, taking the time in the summer to check for and patch cracks, and sealing the driveway in the fall months can go a long way toward keeping it in good condition — so that ice and cold in the winter can’t do any more damage to it. The winter months are a good time to take care of any regular maintenance inside the home, such as patching drywall and re-grouting in bathrooms and kitchens. Spring is the best time of year to clean gutters and check the exterior of the house for any damage to siding, windows or doors.

Having a checklist can help homeowners keep track of all of the routine seasonal maintenance they need to do around their homes throughout the year. Without one, it’s possible that certain tasks can slip through the cracks and become bigger problems. Use the following seasonal home maintenance checklist to keep track of all the tasks you need to complete around your home, and you can help keep your home healthy year-round.
