Summer is here, you’ll want to prepare your home and yard for the onslaught of the summer heat, and it's a great time to focus on home maintenance for the exterior of your home. With the change of each season comes a new set of maintenance tasks for your home. To help you cover all the bases, Talon Home Inspections has come up with a handy Summer Maintenance Checklist for home owners and our clients. Consult it every year and your home will keep you safe and reward you by saving you unexpected cost's.
Now if you haven't done the Spring Maintenance, you may want to check that first to see what other tasks need to be performed to ensure your up to date. Most summer maintenance consists of things the average person can do without professional assistance. If there are tasks you don't feel comfortable doing, find a professional in the field who offers assistance and guarantees there work.
Central Air Conditioning
If you haven't already, prep your air conditioner.
Note: When was the last time you had your air conditioner serviced? Maybe you need to schedule a service call to have your air conditioner checked before the first hot day of Spring or Summer, and have your ducts professionally cleaned. It'll make your indoor air quality healthier and your air conditioner more efficient.
Roof and Chimney
Your roof should be inspected annually to ensure that you don't have any problems. So if you haven't done so in Spring, checking your roof now is a good idea and will assist you in finding a small problem before it becomes a large, leaky one.
Clear limbs, leaves and other debris from the surface.
When was the last time you had the chimney cleaned? Schedule a chimney clean and service so it's ready for next winter. This will ensure you're good to go for winter.

Performing a summer home maintenance inspection and making any needed repairs not only makes your life a little easier, it also serves another purpose. If, at some point, you intend to sell your home, having records to show the maintenance you performed will give potential buyers a little peace of mind.
Remember to always put safety first. Many home maintenance tasks are better left to the professionals so be sure to hire a contractor or technician if you are not able to handle the task on your own. Now that your done, relax and enjoy summer with friends and family and don't forget to put another shrimp on the BBQ when friends arrive.
