Homeowner checklist for spring maintenance

64936(NC)—Winter can be hard on a house. As the snow melts away and the tulips start to bloom, spring may be the best time to inspect your home for any issues that may have been covered up by snow drifts and ice.

The following are some tips from AmeriSpec to get you ready for spring:

• Check foundation and attic vents for damage.

• Check for any missing, loose or damaged shingles.

• Check for any evidence of water penetration in attic and ceilings after wet weather.

• Check pre-fabricated chimneys for rust.

• Check fascia and soffits for deterioration and damage.

• Check all window and door hardware.
