February brings Groundhog Day and a declaration of six more weeks of winter or an early spring. It is a great time for maintenance on your home. Have the HVAC serviced before temperatures start rising, Caulk around windows or replace beat up weatherstripping around doors for energy efficiency. Cut back limbs overhanging the roof to reduce potential damage. Clean out gutters so rainwater can flow away from the home. Fix or replace leaking faucets or toilets. All of these maintenance items can help your home retain its value. If you intend to sell your home this year, these items also will help you receive a good home inspection report. The spring selling season will be here soon.
