Spring Maintenance Checklist
Updated: Apr 27
Some items you may want to consider adding to your spring home maintenance checklist:
Clean gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage of rainwater. Whitestone Hardware carries expandable gutter downspouts to divert rainwater away from your home and strainers to keep your gutters clean.
Inspect the roof for any damage, leaks, or missing shingles. Wet & Forget is an excellent moss and algae remover that we have in stock to keep your roof looking its best.
Check the foundation for cracks or signs of settling. Hydraulic cement will fill in the cracks and help to keep water from penetrating your foundation.
Test and clean your air conditioning system and replace the air filters. Whitestone Hardware carries a variety of sizes of filters.
Wash your house siding or brick with Krud Kutter House Wash. Inspect the siding and trim for any damage, rot or peeling paint. We recommend using Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint.
Check for any signs of pests or insects and address as necessary.
Clean and repair outdoor decks, patios, and fences. Try Mold Armor Deck and Fence Wash.
Inspect windows and doors for any drafts or leaks and reseal as necessary. Whitestone Hardware repairs screens for windows and doors; contact us with your dimensions for a price quote.
Service your lawn mower and other lawn care equipment. Whitestone Hardware can sharpen your Lawn Mower Blades.
Check outdoor lighting and replace any burnt-out bulbs. We have a lighting section and can order any bulb you may need.
Prepare your garden and flower beds for planting. Whitestone Hardware has a variety of garden tools available and can order anything you may require.
Test smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries if necessary. Whitestone Hardware recommends replacing your smoke detector to the newer 10 year Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors.
Check your water heater for leaks and signs of wear and tear. A water leak detector is available for special order through our website. Whitestone Hardware can recommend a plumber to replace your water heater if necessary.
Test your sprinkler system and adjust as needed. Whitestone Hardware can special order any sprinkler parts you may require.
