April Home Maintenance Checklist: Keeping Your Exterior in Top Shape



April, with its mix of rain and sunshine, is the perfect time to focus on home maintenance. Regular upkeep not only preserves the beauty of your home but also its structural integrity. At Taylor Exteriors and Construction, we’re advocates for proactive maintenance, and we're here to guide you through an April checklist, featuring our top-notch products like Malarkey shingles and LP Expert SmartSiding, to keep your home's exterior in prime condition.

1. Roof Inspection:

Start with a roof check. Look for missing, loose, or damaged shingles. Malarkey shingles, known for their resilience, should be inspected to ensure they continue to provide superior protection against the elements.

2. Clean and Repair Gutters:

Ensure your gutters are free of debris. Check for leaks or misaligned pipes and repair as necessary. Properly functioning gutters are crucial for directing rainwater away from your home.

3. Siding Inspection:

Examine your siding for any signs of damage. LP Expert SmartSiding, celebrated for its durability and aesthetic appeal, should be checked for cracks or warping. Clean the siding gently to remove any dirt or grime.

4. Window and Door Check:

Inspect windows and doors for any leaks or drafts. Caulk and seal as needed. If you have ProVia windows and doors, make sure their integrity is maintained to ensure energy efficiency.

5. Paint Touch-ups:

Look for chipping or peeling paint. Touching up your paint not only improves the appearance of your home but also provides an extra layer of protection against the weather.

6. AC Unit Maintenance:

Service your air conditioning unit. Clean or replace filters and clear any debris from around the unit to ensure it's ready for warmer temperatures.

7. Deck and Patio Care:

Inspect your deck or patio for any needed repairs. Clean the surface and consider resealing or restaining to protect against moisture and sun damage.

8. Landscaping and Lawn Care:

Prepare your lawn and garden for spring growth. Remove any dead plants and trim bushes. Aerating your lawn and applying fertilizer can promote healthy growth.


A well-maintained home is a source of pride and comfort. This April, take the time to care for your home’s exterior, ensuring it stays beautiful and functional for years to come. At Taylor Exteriors and Construction, we’re equipped with the products and expertise to assist you in all your home maintenance needs. Let’s work together to keep your home in top shape this spring!
