5 Tips for Getting Your Home Ready for Summer

Summer has arrived and it’s high time that you prepare your home for it! Especially since the weather will be a lot different compared to the cool breeze brought about by winter, it is important that you take time to relax and enjoy during this season. One way you can do this is by redecorating your home and transforming it into an inviting home for the summer vacation. If possible, you can even throw an outdoor BBQ with some friends so you can enjoy a relaxing ambiance. You can make the most of summer in your Red Deer real estate property by following these easy tips:


Clean Your Windows

An easy way you can welcome summer into your home is to ensure that you have clean and welcoming windows. Get rid of outdoor debris with the help of a cloth or brush. This will enable you to discard the dust that accumulated over the winter months, while you kept your windows closed. With the summer season, there’s no better reason not to have your windows and drapes open. At the same time, you can trade your thick winter curtains with light, breezy options.


Replace Damaged Window Screens

When you have finished cleaning your glass windows, you can check your screen for any rips or holes. If you find any, you can have them replaced. This way, you do not have to worry about any wasps entering your home and disturbing you while you watch your favorite TV show.


Check Your Roof

Now is the perfect time to take inventory of your roof. Take time to have a professional check for loose or any broken shingles, as well as loose chimney bricks and mortar. From inside your home, make sure you check your skylights for any stains; as they are indicative of water leakage. By checking your home for these things, you get to have them repaired before the damage becomes worse.


Check Your Drainage and Gutters

Take this time to clear debris off of your gutters so you get rid of the dirt and grime that have accumulated over the previous months. This is also a great time to check for damages and bends so you can have them replaced as soon as possible. Consider hiring an expert to help you check these things so you avoid any weak drainage from ruining your home’s foundation.


Clean or Repair Your Patio/Deck

Summer is meant to be spent outdoors. If you have a dirty or broken patio, you might not want to spend your time outside. Ensure that you take time to clean this part of your home, especially if you will be inviting friends over for an outdoor BBQ afternoon. If you have the budget for it, you can also upgrade your patio with new equipment. A new BBQ grill will also work wonders and will be perfect for the season.
