Summer is nearly here, which means that it’s time to get our homes ready for the season. We’ve already tackled our spring cleaning, but what should we do to prepare for summer?

Clean Those Dirty Windows

You’ve probably cleaned the glass during your spring-cleaning, but don’t stop there—our window screens and hardware often times gets neglected. Not sure how to tackle the screen or hardware? Learn how.

Or maybe it’s simply time to replace your old windows! Try answering these 3 questions to determine whether you should replace your home’s windows.

Stay Cool by Checking the AC

ACSummerBefore the weather gets unbearably hot, make sure your AC works! If you’re using window units, install them now and make sure they’re still blowing cold air. Don’t forget to remove and clean the air filters! If you have central air conditioning in your home, it’s a smart idea to have a professional come out and make sure everything is up to par!

Turn Your Porch into The Home’s Centerpiece

Sweep up and mop your porch with an all-purpose cleaner. Are your wood floors starting to look faded and dried out? Consider re-staining it. Or maybe your painted floors are starting to chip away? Think of re-painting it, or at least giving it a touch-up!

What’s the biggest focus of a front porch? The entry door! Add a little flair to your home and with a stunning new entry door. Choosing the right entry door is easy.

Watch Out for Roof Problems
