Welcome to the April edition of On The House Express! This month, we're focusing on spring maintenance. Though home maintenance is a year-round task, spring and fall are two of the most important times for it. Spring is a time to assess how well your maintenance work held up during the winter and what other maintenance work or repairs must be made as a result of winter.
