A house lives and breathes. When things work smoothly, we feel comfortable and at peace. But when something doesn’t feel right, it can eat at you like an annoying pest. It could be a much-needed renovation or just poor maintenance that’s throwing off your vibe.

We’re gonna take a look at some common things people meant to do to their homes last year, that they can redeem themselves for now.
First Home Maintenace Failure: Ignoring Winter Damage
The damage you suffer in winter needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. If your gutters froze over or you lost shingles in a storm, you’ve got to fix them before they become a more serious problem. In my area, spring and summer bring a lot of rain. If I don’t do a complete inspection I could have serious trouble in April.
Refusing to Fix Appliances
Some appliances can be crucial in the summer, like your air conditioner. You really don’t want to have a busted air conditioner when the temperatures start climbing. Trust me. Maintenance and repairs should be done ASAP. If you’re in the greater St. Louis area, call Harster today to check your ac. If not, check out google to find someone local.
Half-Finishing Décor Changes
Whether is painting the garage, or rearranging furniture, there are different degrees of effort required. These are the most common home maintenance failures. You’ve got to remember to finish them as soon as possible, before you go over budget or run out of time. It’s never fun to see half-finished renovations or décor sitting around on the floor. Make sure you complete every project you start.

Neglecting the Garden
Last but not least, your garden. Whether you’re an expert or beginner, you don’t want to forget to care for your lawn. Maintenance will be different depending on what you have to work with, but no one wants a terrible backyard when barbecue season (or in our area, crawfish season!) comes around.
So there you have it, get your projects completed this year!
