Every year you should review your exterior home to see if any damages were done to your home throughout the cold months. We have compiled a list of areas on the exterior part of your home that you should review and start planning for your summer home exterior improvement to-do list.

 

 

  1. Clean Your Siding: Pressure washing works well for most homes to remove dirt and algae. Check for changes in the exterior and be aware of any warping, storm damage, or signs of insects.

 

 

When power washing on wood or vinyl siding, set it at the lowest pressure setting to ensure it does not damage or remove paint from the siding.
