Spring Condominium Maintenance
With spring around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about maintenance plans for your condominium. Winter can be rough, and there are usually a number of issues that need to be addressed as soon as possible in the spring. It’s also important to get the property ready for those hot summer days.
Here are just a few basic spring condominium maintenance tips to ensure that your condominium is in tip-top shape!
- Check the roof. Winter can take a toll on roofs. Since spring often brings heavy rain and the occasional storm, it’s important to make sure your roof is in good condition and free from leaks. Check for damage, and remove any debris that may have accumulated over the winter. Take a close look at the shingles. If they’re due to be replaced, now is the time to start looking for a roofing contractor.
- Clean the gutters. Springtime is always a good time to clean your gutters. Make sure they are free from leaves, twigs and other debris to ensure that they can safely divert rainwater away from your property.
- Inspect caulking around windows and doors. When the temperature fluctuates, it can use caulking to crack and peel. Check the caulking around all your condominium’s doors and windows, and replace it if necessary.
- Check the air conditioner. The first hot day of the summer is not the best time to find out that there’s a problem with your cooling system. Have the system tested and inspected, and take care of any issues before the temperatures soar.
- Clean the windows. A lot of dirt and grime builds up on windows during the winter. Wash the exterior windows now to give unit owners a nice view of those beautiful spring days.
Spring condominium maintenance undoes the damage of winter and gets your property ready for warmer months. While extremely important, maintenance often gets put on the back burner by over-worked condominium associations.
