Spring Maintenance Projects at the Cabin

Trim overhanging branches

Branches that touch your walls or roof can not only do damage and wear away shingles; they are also a pathway for insects into your home. Trimming can reduce the spiders, ants, and other critters eager to get into your home!

 Clean your gutters and downspouts 

Springtime comes with heavy snowmelt, and if your gutters are clogged with leaves from the fall, melting snow can cause flooding and water damage. Water travels the path of least resistance, and if it can’t make it down the downspouts, it will pour off the eaves and dump moisture against your cabin’s foundation.

Pressure wash

You can rent one or buy one; either way, the dramatic results you can see from pressure washing makes it a fun project. There’s no better tool for removing grime and mildew from walkways, driveways, patios, and decks. 

Change furnace filters

Just like at your primary home, furnace filters get clogged with dust and pollen. If you have a forced-air system at the cabin, make sure you add changing it to your spring project checklist.

Inventory/add to your firewood

Running out of wood for your summer bonfire is a real bummer! Check your wood pile and stock up so you can be sure to make lots of fun memories roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.
