Spring is officially here and, depending on what part of the country you live in, it’s time to start thinking about warm weather home improvement! Here are five things we’d recommend you look into having your local TruBlue technician help you with this season:

Gutter Cleaning: While cleaning your gutters isn’t a difficult job in itself, doing it while standing on a ladder or balancing on a roof can be dangerous (and dirty) work. Skip the hassle and let your local TruBlue technician help you preserve your roof, soffits and fascia by clearing, cleaning and repairing your gutters as needed.

Deck Repair: Decks get a lot of use in the summer and the fall, but stagnant water, expanding ice and darkened skies can wreak havoc during the late fall, winter and early spring. Before hosting your big summer party, if you have spots that are soft, splintered or damaged, let TruBlue fix it for you.

Power Washing: The dirt and grime that builds up on your siding and walkways throughout the year can seriously damage and stain your siding and concrete. Although you can rent a pressure washer, doing it incorrectly can cause even more problems than you started with, so it’s a good idea to let a professional help.

Hardscaping Repair: If you have hardscaping around the exterior of your home – even if it’s just a line of bricks around your garden – having those areas straightened, repaired and cleaned before doing your spring planting can make a huge difference in curb appeal.

Window Replacement or Repair: If you spent the winter fighting a broken or drafty window, replace or repair it during the spring to avoid additional cooling costs in the summer. Older windows are especially prone to damage during the winter, so even if you don’t know there’s an issue, it’s a good idea to check the operations of each window during your spring cleaning.
