Guest post provided by Alice Robertson The return of spring weather is the unofficial start of home maintenance season. You wait anxiously throughout the winter months to get a crack at a number of exterior maintenance jobs because a lot can happen to your home during the winter. Ice build-up on the roof can cause significant damage. An accumulation of tree and lawn debris may block your gutters and add too much weight, which often requires repairs or the replacement of whole sections. Then there’s the lawn, which will need to be cleared of fallen twigs and tree branches and takes a lot of work to restore that nice green blanket of grass you look forward to so much. If you’re a homeowner who enjoys digging into a long list of DIY projects, spring is probably your favorite time of year.
