Remember to clean your gutters! Improper drainage can propel a number of homeowner nightmares such as eventual rot of the fascia, and potential for back-splash effect which may eventually lead to rotting of lower level structures. Stagnant water from improperly drained gutters can also lead to mosquito infestation.
Make sure that all downspouts are free of debris and heading away from the structure of your home.
From the ground, examine roof shingles for any signs of mold, or ripped and torn shingles. Replacing a roof isn't cheap but it's certainly more affordable than replacing inevitable damage caused by leaky roofs.
Installing rain sensors on sprinkler systems can help reduce your water bill. Schedule the sensors between 4 am and 8 am to avoid evaporation from the sun.
Installing insulated blinds can reduce the cost of running an air conditioner by up to 150 dollars.
Summer's a good time to paint any structures that may be affected by wind or sun damage.
Remember to pressure wash your home to avoid residual buildup.
