Home Maintenance Tips for the Summertime!

June 3, 2010
Published by

School is coming to an end and the summertime is here! Amongst your summer vacations and bar-b-ques by the pool, make sure your home is properly maintained to withstand the summer climate conditions with the following tips:

  • Replace air filters.
  • Check moisture at the foundation. If the dirt is pulling away, water the foundation. Do not let the yard around your foundation go more than 20 days without moisture. If it doesn’t rain, lightly and evenly water the yard around your foundation. Don’t forget to water the threshold between your driveway and garage too!
  • Wash driveway, patio and walkways as necessary.
  • To keep the airflow balanced, adjust the air register grills or switch the ceiling fan rotation as necessary. Unbalanced airflow is often most noticeable at the beginning of summer.
  • Eliminate wasted energy by unplugging chargers, electronic devices, and turning off lights and appliances when not in use.
  • Clean and repair gutters.
  • Prepare for the 2010 hurricane season by following the instructions found on the National Red Cross website:

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
