Beat the Heat: Essential Summer Shed Maintenance Tips

Summer is the perfect time to give your Robb's Portable Building the care it deserves.

Start by giving your shed a thorough inspection. Look for any signs of wear and tear, such as:

  • Cracks in the wood or paint: These can let moisture in and cause more significant damage over time.

  • Rust on metal parts: Check hinges, locks, and other metal components for rust and treat them as needed.

  • Loose or missing shingles: If your shed has a shingled roof, replace any that are damaged or missing to prevent leaks.

Summer is a great time to clean the exterior of your shed. A good cleaning can prevent mold and mildew growth and keep your shed looking fresh. Here's how:

  • Wash the walls: Use a mild detergent and a soft brush to scrub the walls. Rinse with a hose, but avoid using a pressure washer as it can damage the wood.

  • Clean the windows: Use a glass cleaner to make your windows sparkle. Check for any cracks or broken seals that might need repair.

The roof is one of the most critical parts of your shed. Here’s how to maintain it:

  • Clear debris: Remove leaves, branches, and other debris that might have accumulated.

  • Check for leaks: Inspect the interior for any signs of water damage, which might indicate a roof leak.

  • Seal gaps: Use roofing sealant to close any gaps or cracks that could allow water to enter.

Summer can bring an influx of pests. To keep your shed pest-free:

  • Seal openings: Ensure there are no gaps or holes where pests can enter.

  • Use repellents: Natural repellents, such as cedar chips or essential oils, can deter insects and rodents.

  • Regular inspections: Check for signs of pests regularly and address any issues promptly.
