Spring into Your Home Maintenance To-Do List

Spring cleaning?

While clearing the clutter from your closets and garage is a great spring tradition, now is also a perfect time to think about the ongoing maintenance of your home as it relates to the value of your home. Buyers of homes for sale in Lafayette CA pay top dollar for well-maintained homes but will sometimes balk when it comes to ones that appear to need lots of obvious work, cosmetic or otherwise.

Dana Green's Black Book of Lafayette CA Service ProvidersHere is a useful article titled “10 home maintenance tips for Spring” by Paul Bianchina for Inman News. In it, Bianchina, a contractor and nationally syndicated columnist, offers a to-do list that spans from repairing your roof to checking your smoke detectors.

Many of these projects are Do It Yourself, but if you find you need help with any of them, you’ll find an updated list of local contractors and other service providers in my online Black Book. (LINK)
