The Importance of July Maintenance

What home maintenance should be done in July? 

In the height of summer, most of us would enjoy the cool Air Conditioning or be outside enjoying parks, sun and pool.  But July weather allows workers to complete the repairs so your home is ready for winter months.  We have a short list of things that can save you time and money on home maintenance later.

Check your home’s siding.  Sure, it looks great from the road – but check the siding up close.  Has it faded from the original tint?  Look for chips or dents.  Helpful hint: Siding indentations are easier to find early or late in the day when the angle of the sun helps shadow the depressions.  Any of these issues could be serious.  Contact All Pro Xteriors Inc. at (952) 486-7834 to set up your free, no contact home exterior inspections for professional eyes on the siding.

Inspect your roof for damaged or loose shingles. Better yet, check the images in your All Pro Exteriors’ home inspection to see what work needs to be done and stay off the ladder.  From the inside of your home, you can check for leaks by looking in the unfinished attic for water marks.  This can help you know when it is time to replace, not just repair your roof.

Inspect your windows.  Windows that were poorly installed or that are damaged from storms can sap energy and coolness from your home.  They can also provide a route for insects to make their way into the home.  Check for gaps between your windows and casings.  Check your screens for holes.  If the gaps are the only issue on your windows, you may be able to caulk the gap yourself.  Your free inspection from All Pro Xteriors can help you recognize the difference between window replacement and window repair.

Once you know what needs to be repaired or replaced, talk to the pros at All Pro Xteriors.  For over twenty years we have lived and worked in the Greater Minneapolis area and we travel all over the state of Minnesota to complete roofing, siding, gutter and window work on residential and commercial buildings.  Our trained crew has worked together for years, generating the experience and efficiency to quickly handle each job correctly and skillfully.  We don’t leave the site until our final inspector approves the workmanship.  Then we clean up the site and you can get back to your summer routine. 

That’s why we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we still endeavor to earn and keep your trust for work done on the exterior of your home.  At All Pro Xteriors, we want to care for your home the way we would care for our own home.  We do quality work, using quality products so the work lasts for years.
