Projects You Should Start Planning Before Spring Arrives


Even though we are still in the first half of winter, before you know it, spring will be here. While you may be looking forward to warmer weather and less snow, there are things you should be doing before the first flower blooms to get your home ready.

With spring right around the corner, here are some projects you should consider planning:

Wash the Windows

After all that snow, sleet, slush, and other forms of precipitation, your windows will likely be splattered with caked-on debris. Not only is this rather unsightly, it also impedes on the amount of natural light coming into the house, as well as the view to the outside. Before spring finally arrives, plan on giving your windows a thorough power-wash.

Spruce Up the Deck

A deck provides the perfect way to extend your living space to the outdoors. It’s a great place to lounge and enjoy the beautiful days ahead, and it’s also a wonderful spot to entertain. If your deck has peeling paint, loose stair spindles, missing wood planks, or is just simply filled with debris, start planning to rejuvenate it. Make the necessary repairs, repaint/stain it, and give it a good clean-up job to get it ready for warm weather entertaining.

Clean Up Your Lawn

After weeks of neglect and being buried under piles of snow, your lawn will need some TLC as the snow finally starts to melt. Plan a weekend to give your lawn the maintenance it needs, including mowing, trimming, fertilizing, planting, and resolving any issues that are preventing your landscaping from being the best it can be. There’s something to be said about the curb appeal that landscaping can bring, so give your lawn the attention it needs and deserves.

Repair or Replace the Window and Door Screens

Window and door screens that are broken, bent, stretched out, and filled with holes aren’t just an eyesore – they’re also no longer functional. The reason for screens is to allow homeowners to enjoy fresh air while keeping bugs and debris out. If the screens are damaged in some way, they will no longer be able to perform their duties the way they were designed to.

If your screens require repair or replacement, call the experts at Doctor Screen. We’ll show up at your home with our mobile screening trailers that come equipped with everything needed to make the necessary repairs or create brand new screens for your home.
