A roof inspection, appliance testing, and garage door service
Summer is here and in the Charlotte, Matthews, Mint Hill, Weddington, NC area, this season means wild weather changes, storms, pollen, and vacations! It’s also a great time to give your house the inspection it needs. Check for and correct any possible problems, clean those corners you normally overlook, and get your home in good shape for the summer and remainder of the year. Here are three areas that can use some special attention:
1. Roof Inspection
The North Carolina summers are known for humidity, heat, and rain. Oh and monster storms. Spring and Fall are included. Just recently, we encountered a storm that had people stuck on I-77 for 3 hours. It also caused limbs to fall and houses to be damaged. The time after this storm had my crews busy fixing roofs as a result. That was just the beginning. This summer in Charlotte and surrounding areas, like Waxhaw, Ballantyne, Matthews, Mooresville, Indian Trail, and Weddington, we will have storms in abundance (I’m not a meteorologist, but I’ve lived in this area long enough to know).
As we’ve discussed in previous articles, you probably haven’t been on your roof in a while. It’s probably time a professional gets up there because leaks can drip un-noticed, wasting your water and money. And worse, causing more damage to your roof. It’s better we fix your roof now before the next storm comes.
Appliances work reliably…right up until the day the dishwasher floods your kitchen, the dryer stops drying, and the oven stops cooking your food. There are certain things you can do to keep these machines working well longer.
Test your appliances to make sure they are working properly. If your oven is running hotter or cooler than it’s set for, you’d better find out before you make that big Sunday dinner! Give your machines a good cleaning, inside and out. You want to avoid build-up in any appliance. Lastly, check under and behind your appliances. Built-up dust could cause a fire risk, grime is just gross, and you might just find lost socks, bank statements, mouse droppings, and all sorts of items you need to deal with. If you don’t want to, or can’t do this step yourself, you can hire a cleaning company.
3. Garage Door
Garage doors for some reason often go without repair for years. But when you need it repaired, you really need it repaired! Your car can’t pull out of the garage if the garage door doesn’t open. And that happens! The garage door is a part of the house—just think about how many times you and your family go in and out of the garage every day.
Have you ever seen a garage door go off its rails and drop? It’s not a good thing. A simple visit by a garage door company, to check the sensors, the gears, and the other components, can save you from hassle—and injury.
The roof (including a roof inspection), your appliances, and your garage door–all are critical to keeping your home safe, clean, and enjoyable. What better time to check on them than at the beginning of a new season? Especially during summer in the Charlotte, NC area.
