Signs of spring are popping up all over Denver. Flowers are in bloom, the birds and animals have returned, and people have resumed their normal walks in Cheesman Park and City Park, and along Cherry Creek trail.

Spring marks an important time of year for homeowners because it’s a great chance to attend to maintenance tasks that have been neglected over the year. And siding maintenance should be on every Denver homeowner’s checklist!

So get out your pen and paper, we’re about to give you the full break down for things you should do to maintain your home and siding this spring.

The Essential Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Home’s Exterior

Your exterior is one of the most important parts of your home. Keep your home’s exterior in tip top condition with this spring cleaning checklist:

1. Porch and patio
Over winter, your porch and patio collect all kinds of dead leaves, dust, and debris. Sweep off your patio and clear away cobwebs to make your home look groomed and well-maintained.

2. Landscaping
Spring is the perfect time to spruce up your home’s landscaping. Make sure you trim back overgrown bushes and tree branches in addition to planting those new flowers you bought at the hardware store.

3. Clean gutters
Your gutters get the most use during spring, when the most rainfall occurs. Clean out your gutters and keep your home’s exterior protected from moisture.

4. Siding
Don’t forget to inspect your home’s siding this spring! Does your siding need to be replaced? Do you notice any cracks or chips? If so, you’ll want to contact a professional right away to get these things taken care of.
