Extend the time for completing your Spring home repair, maintenance and organization projects by starting in mid-winter. It’s January, and with daytime temperatures currently hovering around 70° here in Atlanta, we are scheduling our customer’s exterior home maintenance and organization projects now. This helps balance the home repair budget and will free more time for other curb-appeal projects like gardening, updating house numbers and styling your front porch later in the year.

|Start scheduling in||Project||Things to consider|

|January – April||Spring Cleaning + Organization||Before April showers arrive, move indoors – it’s time to kick off your Spring purging, cleaning and organizing.|
|Early-to-Late May||Exterior Power Washing||Before you begin your exterior painting projects, have your home and flat concrete surfaces powerwashed.|
|Early-to-Late May||Front Door, Mailbox + Touch Up||For a great curb appeal boost, schedule any minor exterior painting projects over any warm dry day or two.|
