Even though the Minnesota and North Dakota spring season took a while, it is here and now is the perfect time to inspect the exterior of your home for any damage from the winter and overall deterioration.
We have found there are six main areas to focus on when planning your spring inspections.
1. Check the roof. Looking for problem areas like broken/missing shingles.
2. Clean and assess the home’s siding.
3. Check the gutters. Make sure they are free of obstructions and are not damaged.
4. Evaluate your windows. Check the weather stripping and if your windows don’t operate easily there is air leaking and they may need to be replaced.
5. Spend some time on your doors. If you can see light around the door from the inside you may need either some better weather stripping or a new door.
6. Inspect your trim, shutters and other exterior accessories for rotting or other deterioration.
Some quality time on the exterior of you home can really prolong its life and keep it efficient.

Every spring in Minnesota and North Dakota we experience potential issues with melting snow and flooding. With the additional snow that fell in April and the quick melt, flooding is definitely a possibility.
As most of us know water and electric don’t mix well. If you are experiencing flooding issues in your home this advice will help keep you safe.
1. Don’t use electrical appliances that have been wet until examined by a qualified repair person.
2. Use care when stepping into a basement with standing water.
3. Have a licensed electrician examine wiring, outlets, breakers or fuses to ensure proper working order.
4. Remove the standing water as soon as possible to allow for electrical items and floor coverings to immediately start drying out.
5. Flooding outside of your home can also be dangerous. Make sure there are not any fallen power lines or other electrical items in contact with standing water.
As mentioned before be very cautious when dealing with water and electricity. If in doubt call a licensed individual to survey the scene. Even with the potential for flooding we welcome spring, especially this year.
You are ready to make the move and buy a modular home and you need to talk with the bank regarding a mortgage. This is the time where a good credit score is important. Financial institutions and businesses inspect your credit history when they evaluate your applications for credit, insurance, employment, and even leases. Based on your credit payment history, companies can choose to grant or deny you credit provided you receive fair and equal treatment. Sometimes, things happen that can cause credit problems: a temporary loss of income, an illness, even a computer error.
Follow these easy steps below to check and repair your credit score:
1. Get your credit report. Good source: www.annualcreditreport.com
2. Review reports looking for problems or inaccuracies.
3. Contact credit bureaus to repair.
4. After 3-6 months, check your credit report for corrections.
Solving credit problems may take time and patience, but hang in there and take the proper steps. Ignoring your poor credit score will not make it go away. Best of luck!
