We help our customers who don’t have the time, tools, or ability to get the job done!
Make Sure Your Windows are Airtight
Hot weather is coming, so you’ll want your air conditioning to be operating at 100%. To get the best bang for your buck, we can make sure your windows are all tight and secure so that cold AC air doesn’t seep out and let hot summer air in. We can replace old caulking and make any repairs to get your windows ready.
Examine Your Outdoor Deck
If you’ve got an outdoor deck, it might be a little worse for the wear after a long winter. Power washing an outdoor deck is a great way to blast off the accumulated dirt and debris that forms over fall and winter. It would help if you also were on the lookout for warped or loose boards. Our exterior home repair services can help get your deck ready to enjoy this summer.
An easy tip to tell if your deck needs to be resealed is to pour some water on it. If it breaks into little puddles, the sealant is still good. However, if the wood absorbs the water, it’s time for a new coat of sealant. If it’s been a few years since you’ve refinished your outdoor deck, consider letting us do a high-quality deck refinishing for you!
Inspect Your Roof
Winter in New Jersey means snow, and snow piling up on your roof can lead to damage in a few different ways. Water leaking through your roof can lead to mold, humidity or cause your roof to sag. If you think your roof might’ve accumulated damage over the winter, get an expert to check it out.
Check Your Driveway
After a long winter of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, many driveways are cracked and damaged. Powerwashing your driveway is a great way to improve the appearance. You may also need to have cracks repaired.
Clean and Repair Gutters
It’s a good idea to get your gutters checked out at least once a year, especially in the spring. During winter, your gutters are working overtime with all the snow and rain. When temperatures drop, the snow in your gutters can freeze and damage parts of your gutters. If you have lots of trees around, it’s extra important to check out the gutters since debris can accumulate.
