Ready for summer? Spring is the best time to look around the house and see what needs cleaning or repair. Over the winter, we often get icy weather, high winds and rain. Your home may have lost a few roofing tiles. You could have leaky pipes. Before we gear up for summer, take on a few home improvement projects. Home Repairs,Loose boards on a porch or deck can be a hazard. Walk around the house and look for loose boards, then go ahead and repair them. Usually, this is an easy fix, using only a hammer, screwdriver, nails and screws. Don’t forget to paint the new boards as well. Paint helps to protect wood from damage.
