Summer Home Maintenance

It’s been about 8 months since my husband and I began taking an orderly approach to maintaining our home. We’ve caught a few problems early and hopefully we’ve preempted a few others! Links to our fall, winter, and spring home maintenance checklists are below:

The nature of the seasons dictates that the bulk of routine maintenance tasks be completed in the fall and spring, so most of the summer tasks won’t take too long to complete.

    Caulking around windows and doors interior and exterior will help with utility costs. My basement windows are definitely in need of this service. Also for homes that are not totally “no maintenance” Check for chipping and peeling paint. Scrape, prime and paint where needed. This will save having to replace wood later on from weathering.

      Great points!
      We have been doing a lot of caulking recently and have noticed an area around our door that needs to be scraped, primed, and painted again. I think we’ll have some busy weekends coming up!

  2. One of my cool summer day maintenance plans is to run my self cleaning oven so it is clean for the year to come. I should have planned this for spring, but it slipped my mind. I suppose fall would work as well. Great list!
