Although some parts of the country are still getting snow and cold, Colorado is already shaking off the frost of winter. The first day of spring is upon us, and with the fresh air of the new season, now is the time people begin revisiting their to-do lists and spring cleaning chores. As a homeowner, you know all too well the importance of maintaining your home. But what chores should you tend to now that winter is over? Read below to find out.

What Are Some of the Maintenance Chores People Do in Spring?

According to diynetwork.com, the following 6 items are things that ought to be checked off the to-do list for the spring season:

  1. Clean the gutters
  2. Inspect the roof for damage
  3. Repair damaged, chipped or peeling paint
  4. Trim overgrown trees and shrubs
  5. Check for proper drainage away from your home’s foundation
  6. Unclog/inspect foundation vents

These things help prevent moisture damage, as well as damage from trees and critters. Of course, depending on the specific characteristics of your home, there may be other maintenance to perform.

Finding Ways to Simplify Your Life by Reducing Maintenance Needs

Maintenance is important. It sustains the value of your home and property, prevents expensive problems, and can even keep you and your family safer, such as by preventing home fires. That being said, most of us would like to spend our time doing the things we enjoy while performing the least amount of maintenance possible.

TruLog™ steel log siding is a maintenance-free siding product. Although it can’t eliminate all of the upkeep you need to do, it does reduce the time you spend on caring for the exterior, particularly compared to a log home. Logs require even greater care than highlighted in the list above, such as:

  • Re-sealing
  • Repairing/replacing damaged chinking
  • Repainting
  • Replacing damaged logs
  • Preventing/eliminating termite and bug infestations

These things may have to be performed as often as every 2-3 years, which, over time, can be a substantial commitment of your time. We created TruLog™ in part because we want you and your family to spend more of your time doing the things you enjoy, and less of your time taking care of your home. As TruLog™ homeowners put together their spring cleaning lists, they look forward to only rinsing the siding off with a hose. Our product is also covered by warranty, so if you do run into certain types of issues, you’ll be protected.

Make the transition to less home maintenance by siding your home with TruLog™ steel log siding. For a free estimate, please call us at 970-646-4490. Located in Loveland in the Northern Colorado region, we can ship our siding directly to you, wherever you are in the country.
