Home Improvement Tips for Spring To Keep Your Home Looking Great
Now that the flowers are blooming in the Castro Valley area, you may be busy making your spring cleaning to-do list. If so, we recommend that you include both indoor and outdoor tasks and that you start small so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Here are six things an East Bay building contractor will tell you to include for starters:
Check your roof for damage.
Even though winters are mild in California, it’s a good idea to get into the habit of inspecting your roof for damages that might have occurred since last year. For example, you might spot warping, loose or missing shingles, and cracks in the roof that require immediate attention from an East Bay building contractor.
Clean the gutters.
Leaves, branches, insects, and standing water are just some of the things that may lurk inside of your home’s gutters. Unfortunately, this can lead to a build-up of mold that can find its way into your home. The collection of debris can also prevent water from flowing properly to the ground.
Schedule preventive maintenance for your air conditioner.
The hot weather starts early around here. Make sure your air conditioner is up to the task of keeping you and your family cool all summer long by getting a professional tune-up. An East Bay building contractor and HVAC company like B.A. Morrison can help you identify issues that might affect your heating and cooling system in the long-run.
Reseal cracks around windows and doors.
One way to reduce your cooling costs this summer is to make sure that the conditioned air remains inside of your home instead of leaking out through cracks. Proper insulation will make all the difference in keeping you cool in the winter.
Consider a tune-up for your garbage disposal.
When you think of how much uneaten food ends up in your garbage disposal, it’s easy to see why it needs regular maintenance. The good news is that all you need to do is turn on the faucet and drop approximately one tray’s worth of ice cubes down the drain at the same time. This is also a great time of year to get an estimate on Castro Valley kitchen remodeling, especially if you have been eyeing Pinterest design boards and are ready to remodel.

When you schedule your air conditioner tune-up each spring, set a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke alarm at the same time. Be sure to check every unit in your home to ensure that it will work to sound an alarm should you ever need it.
