Property Management & Maintenance on Long Island
Spring is such a wonderful time of year. The thawing of the cold winter months makes way for the warmer weather of spring on Long Island. For many on Long Island, New York who own beach homes, it is time to open them up for spring. It is not uncommon to hunker down these homes to withstand the winter months, but once the spring rolls around it is time to head back to these homes. So when it comes to Fire Island Property Management, we offer spring opening services to help you restart for the warmer weather. We have years of experience handling these tasks and will get the property looking great once again.
Exterior Spring Opening Tasks
When winter leaves, it means that there needs to be an inspection of the property to see if any damage from the cold, snow and ice may have caused. As well as prepare for the Long Island summer heat. Our spring opening property management services will check all aspects of your home to make sure it is ready for use! Here is a list of common tasks that come with spring openings for homes.
We will inspect the landscaping at your property to see what needs to be done. Whether it is trimming trees or shrubs, laying down some new soil, or improving your flower beds, our team offers professional landscaping services to help. Spring is also the perfect time to lay down some lawn fertilizer.
Power washing is perfect for decks, steps, sidewalks and patios. When you power wash these areas of your property, you will keep it looking new and lessen the impact the winter had on the surface.
Spring is a wonderful time to give your home a facelift with some painting. No matter how big or small the job is, we offer professional painting services that will get any part of your home looking great.
Over the winter months, debris will clog your gutters. Leaves, branches, and grime falls onto the roof and this buildup takes a toll on the gutters. This may cause them to rip off or cause leaks that can then damage the walls, siding, or roof of your home. And water leaks may lead to problematic mold, which is a problem in and of itself.
The winter months sport very low temperatures, which can harm your A/C unit and lead to issues when you want to start it back up. So we can inspect the A/C unit to make sure everything is still intact, such as the pipe insulation, the outdoor coil and the panels.
Re-caulk Doors & Windows
The winter months tend to wear away caulk on the windows and doors. So we will inspect these areas and re-caulk them if needed. While we inspect, we can test for air leaks, too. So the cool air inside your home doesn't escape out through any cracks.
Inspect Wood Trim
Over the winter, wood can suffer some wear and tear that may need immediate attention. That is why it is important to inspect any exposed wood on porches, decks, doors and windows for aspects such as rot and insect damage. Letting something like this slide may lead to a much more expensive undertaking.
Replace Torn Window Screens
The window screens need to be in good shape. Holes and tears in these screens makes it easier for pests and bugs to get into the home. So if any screens are damaged, we will recommend replacing them.
Outdoor Grill Tune Up
If you have an outdoor grill that is left outside over the winter, we recommend inspecting it and tuning it up before the summer BBQ season. This is the perfect time to give your grill a deep clean and replace any of the grates as needed. As well as prep the propane tank to make sure it is working properly.
Replace Broken Lights
Outdoor lighting is important and is more important during the warmer months since you will spend a lot more time outside during the warmer months than during the winter. So you will want to make sure that all the outdoor lighting is working properly. And if not, replace any bulbs that are no longer working.
Check Patio Furniture
Do you have nice furniture for your patio? Well, come spring, check it to make sure it didn't get damaged sitting out there during the winter and is still in safe condition. Also, check to see how worn the cushions are and if they need replacing.
