Prepping Your Home for Spring: Maintenance Tips from the Pros

With only 14 days until the start of spring, homeowners find themselves thinking about the annual ritual of spring cleaning and maintenance. For many, this is the perfect time to assess the wear and tear of the harsh winter months and prepare their homes for the warmer days ahead. At Granite State Painters, we understand the importance of this seasonal transition and are here to share our professional tips on prepping your home for spring.


Inspect Your Home’s Exterior

The first step in spring preparation is a thorough inspection of your home’s exterior. Winter weather can be harsh on your home’s siding, paint, and overall structure. Look for signs of damage, such as chipped paint, cracks in the siding, or peeling finishes. These minor issues can quickly become major problems if not addressed promptly. Consider scheduling a professional exterior painting or touch-up service to protect your home and boost its curb appeal.

Check Your Windows and Doors

Windows and doors are common entry points for drafts and moisture. Inspect the seals and caulking around windows and doors for any signs of deterioration. Replacing old caulking and adding weather stripping can improve energy efficiency, reduce moisture intrusion, and enhance the comfort of your home.

Clean Your Gutters and Downspouts

Gutters and downspouts play a crucial role in directing water away from your home’s foundation. During winter, they can become clogged with leaves, twigs, and debris, causing water to overflow and potentially damage your home’s exterior or foundation. Cleaning your gutters and ensuring downspouts are properly directed away from the foundation is essential for preventing water damage and maintaining the integrity of your home.

Landscaping and Tree Care

Winter can leave your yard looking a little worse for wear. Early spring is the ideal time to clean up fallen branches, remove dead plants, and trim back overgrown trees and shrubs. Consider hiring a professional landscaping service to help shape your outdoor space into a beautiful and welcoming extension of your home.


Schedule a Professional Paint Inspection

Winter conditions can be tough on your home’s paint job, leading to fading, cracking, or peeling. A professional paint inspection can help identify areas that need attention before they escalate into larger issues. At Granite State Painters, our team can assess the condition of your paint, recommend solutions, and provide expert exterior painting services to refresh your home’s appearance and protect it from the elements.


Refresh Outdoor Living Spaces

As the weather warms up, outdoor living spaces become the heart of leisure and entertainment. Prepare your decks, patios, and porches by cleaning, repairing, and repainting or staining surfaces as needed. This not only enhances the beauty of your outdoor spaces but also extends their lifespan and functionality.

Embrace the Season of Renewal

Spring is a season of renewal and rejuvenation, not just for nature but for our homes as well. Taking the time to perform these maintenance tasks can prevent costly repairs, improve your home’s efficiency, and enhance its aesthetic appeal. At Granite State Painters, we’re committed to helping you protect and beautify your home, ensuring it’s ready to welcome the brighter days ahead.


Remember, the key to maintaining a beautiful and durable home exterior is regular care and prompt attention to any issues. We can, of course, assist with any of your exterior painting projects this year and we continue to tackle both interior and cabinet projects throughout the exterior season as well!
