How can I prepare my home for summer after enduring the harsh Ottawa winter?

Winter can take its toll on your home and property, but with the arrival of spring, it’s time to gear up for warmer weather. Here are some expert tips from Ottawa Fastener Supply to get your home ready for summer, ensuring you can relax and enjoy the heat when it arrives! 

What should I inspect around my home to prevent air leaks and damage? 

Take a stroll around the exterior of your home to identify potential air leaks that could hike up your air conditioning costs this summer. Check window and door seals, inspect pipes and vents for proper sealing, and address any cracks in the foundation. Keeping these areas sealed and maintained is key to energy efficiency and home comfort. 

How can I rejuvenate my home after the winter months? 

Winter often leaves behind debris and grime, but a thorough cleanup can breathe new life into your property. Utilize a pressure washer to spruce up the exterior, from siding to decking and driveways. Be on the lookout for signs of bigger projects, such as repainting or resealing, to keep your home looking its best. 

What outdoor tasks should I tackle to prepare for summer? 

Prioritize tasks like cleaning gutters, raking leaves, and trimming overgrown vegetation to promote healthy growth and discourage pests. Don’t forget to inspect and tune up your outdoor power equipment, ensuring it’s in top condition for the warmer months ahead.
