Is your family ready for spring yet? If so, no one could blame you. Another cold and snowy Wisconsin winter has many of our friends and neighbors in Kenosha and the surrounding communities dealing with a serious case of spring fever.
Here’s some good news. It’s already March, so spring is getting closer and will be here before we know it. And now is a good time to plan for how you’ll spend warm and sunny Saturday afternoons.
If you haven’t thought about adding home maintenance to the list of activities, we’d like to ask you to reconsider. This is a great time to take steps to protect your home against the threat of spring thunderstorms.
We can’t stop a storm from hitting our neighborhood. But we can take steps to protect our homes from the damage they can cause. Here’s how you can do it.
Spring Projects for Your Family’s To-Do List
Make these projects one of your priorities this season:
Get your roof ready for stormy weather. Don’t let the first time you realize your shingles are loose or your roof is leaking be when it starts storming. You can take steps to prevent this by checking your roof on a sunny Saturday. Look for missing shingles and signs of leaks. Then you can repair them.
Be sure your gutters aren’t cluttered with winter debris. Clean gutters allow water around your home to flow the right way. When they’re full of trash, they can overflow and cause water damage.
Check your home and garage for overhanging limbs. Mature trees are beautiful, and many people enjoy having them in their yards. But they can cause damage if limbs are overhanging your home or garage during heavy winds. Cut them early.
