Major Maintenance Tips To Get Your Home Ready For Spring

siding contractorsWinter is nearly over, which means it’s time to start fixing the maintenance problems the wind and snow have made for you. The good news is, once you get these early springtime chores in the bag your home will be all set for the season.

With that in mind, here are some major maintenance tips to help you on your way to getting your home ready for warmer weather.

Get an inspection for your home’s exterior

The most common housing problems you’ll experience after winter are roofing and siding problems. That’s because your roof and siding is what’s protecting the inside of your home from the chilly weather.

Have a professional take a look at your shingles and siding to determine if there are any repairs that need to be made or water damage that needs to be fixed. You might be able to spot these issues yourself, but a professional has a trained eye to spot smaller problems.

Clean your gutter system

Spring is known for its showers, which means you need to make sure your gutters are clear. A damaged gutter system can cough water back up onto your roof. The resulting water damage won’t be pretty.

Clear out any leaves and debris that might have made their way into your gutters during the winter season. You can also contact a professional if you don’t feel safe doing this project yourself. Either way, make sure your gutters are in great shape.

Clean your foundation vents

If your home has a crawl space, that means you have vents along your foundation walls to provide air circulation. This helps to prevent excess moisture from settling and growing mold.

During the winter months, the screens in your foundation vents will collect leaves and debris. Clean out these vents by hand or use a vacuum and repair any small holes you see to keep pests away.

Side-Pro fixed an issue with some wavy sideboards on my home. The team that came out was fast, effective, professional -- and genuinely nice guys. They explained what they were doing, answered all my questions, and got the work done beautifully and ahead of schedule. Afterwards they followed up promptly to make sure I was satisfied and to let me know they were available for any future questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing similar work done.

Side Pro was a pleasure to work with from the start. I learned in the bid process that most siding and window companies are sales teams only and all the installation is sub-contracted out. It was important to me to use a firm that was accountable for the end to end job and Side Pro used full-time employees for my job. The sales person knew a lot about siding and gave me some great recommendations. He submitted a competitive price and then walked through the full job with me and the job foreman. Then the job foreman took over and was very responsive to all my questions and change orders over the course of project. The installation team was also excellent. They cleaned up every day and did really top notch work. I am very particular and they worked to understand what I was after and made it happen. Great job. The job site had COVID procedures posted, which were followed by the crew, and a safety officer dropped by on two occasions to check up on things. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better customer experience and recommend Side Pro to anyone considering new siding.

Side-Pro did a FANTASTIC job installing the Cemplank siding and Hardieboard trim on our new shop. The price was great and the work was top-notch. The two gentlemen doing the work were efficient and professional. Communication with DJ, the project advisor/estimator was very good. Overall I am very pleased and will definitely use them again! Highly recommended.

I am VERY satisfied! I called for a repair job. Several other companies either would not give an estimate, or could not do so for several months. I got the job done, as requested, within a couple weeks. Karl their repair specialist is pleasant to work with, as well as competent.

I needed crawl space vents installed with very short notice. Side-Pro set up an appointment and got the work done in a matter of days! The contractor who did the work busted his butt and was very nice. The work is excellent.
