    Have some down time this summer and looking to cross things off the list? With the great weather we Clevelanders have in the summer, utilize it to get home-repair projects done! Here are some jobs that can get it done right away. Don't have time? Call Reilly Painting, a home-repair company in Cleveland.

    Project #1- Decks

    You will need to give your deck a good cleaning and check for any water damage from the winter. They make scrub for the decks, scrub your deck with this and let dry one day. Then you should apply a fresh coat of sealer providing there is no water damage to the deck. If there is water damage then you may want to sand it and refinish it. Then each year apply the sealer to it and you should have no more problems.

    Project #2- Caulk

    Caulking is something that should also be done once a year. You should caulk around the exterior joints and around the windows. Just because its warm out doesn't mean you wont need to do this. In the summer you are trying to keep the warm air out and this is a vital place that air seeps in from. Don't forget to caulk around the doors also. This seems to be a place people forget and its one of the most important spots. Caulking around these will also help keep all the summer insects out of your home. This can be a huge issue if a ton of bee's figure out how to get in your home.
