Keep your roof in great condition

You should also clean out your gutter regularly and repay loose and leaky gutters to avoid staining the exterior walls of your house with dirty water from the roof.

Clean up your yard

Finally keep your yard neat and trimmed. Remove the weeds from the flowerbed, mow the lawn and trim the shrubs. Even if you do not plan to plant a fresh garden, keep whatever plants you have at their best. Nothing makes a home look shabbier than a patchy lawn.
