Summer Home Maintenance Checklist by Dream Home Inspection


Summer is not just about beach vacations, barbecues, and sunbathing; it's also an opportune time to show some love to the haven you call home. With the warmth and extended daylight, summer is the perfect season to assess, repair, and maintain your home. Dream Home Inspection has curated a comprehensive checklist we perform with our annual home inspection check-up inspections to ensure your home remains in tip-top shape throughout these sunny months.


Inspect Your Air Conditioning System

Before the heat waves hit, ensure your air conditioning unit is operating efficiently. Change or clean the filters, check for any blockages, and get a professional to perform a thorough check if necessary. A well-maintained AC not only cools more effectively but also saves on energy costs.


Clean and Check Windows and Doors

The pleasant summer breeze is welcome, but not the insects it brings. Inspect window screens for tears or holes and repair them. Clean windows inside and out for a clearer view of summer's beauty. Ensure that doors and windows seal properly to prevent cool air from escaping.


Gutter Cleaning and Inspection

Spring may have left your gutters cluttered with leaves and debris. Clean out gutters and downspouts to prevent water damage. While you’re at it, inspect for any signs of rust or damage and make necessary repairs.


Examine Your Roof

Winter snow and spring rains can be tough on roofs. Scan for any missing or damaged shingles and check flashings around chimneys and vents. Addressing minor issues now can prevent major repairs in the future.


Refresh Exterior Paint and Siding

A fresh coat of paint gives your home a facelift and provides a protective barrier against pests and weather. Inspect exterior walls for chipping paint or damaged siding and make the necessary touch-ups.


Landscaping and Lawn Care

Trim overgrown bushes and trees, especially those close to the house, to prevent possible damage. Mow the lawn regularly and consider planting seasonal flowers to enhance your home's curb appeal.


Inspect Outdoor Lighting

Ensure all outdoor lighting fixtures are in good shape. Replace any burnt-out bulbs and consider investing in motion-sensor or solar-powered lights for added security and efficiency.


Check Decks and Patios

These areas receive heavy traffic in summer. Examine wooden decks for splintering or rotting and consider resealing them. Clean patios and outdoor furniture to make them ready for summer soirees.


Pest Control

Summer can usher in unwanted pests. Check for signs of ant trails, wasp nests, or rodent activity. Consider a professional pest inspection, along with a regular local pest control service, if you spot any troublesome signs.


Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

This is a year-round necessity. Test these life-saving devices and replace batteries if needed.

In conclusion, while summer is a time of relaxation and fun, it’s also a golden opportunity to keep your home in pristine condition. A bit of maintenance now can save you from hefty repair bills in the future. So, take a leaf from Dream Home Inspection's book and make your home shine this summer! 🌞🔧🏠
