Fall Maintenance Tips

November 4, 2016

It’s time to fall back! As the days get shorter and we start spending more time at home, it is important to make sure that your house is in great shape. Here are some fall maintenance tips to get you started. 

Fall leaves may look beautiful, but it is important to make sure that you don’t let them clog your gutters. Plan on cleaning your gutters this season to prevent any damage during rainstorms. 

Make sure your roof is in tip-top shape. The changing season brings more moisture and wind that can cause leaks and other pesky issues. Proactively get ahead of any problems by checking your roof’s condition soon.

Stay warm! As it gets cooler, it is important to have proper sealing and insulation to keep your home from losing heat. Check for air leaks from windows and doors by moving your hand around the frame. If you sense any draft, you can use weather stripping or caulk to create a seal. 

The holidays are just around the corner, and you will be busy before you know it, so don’t delay on checking on the condition of your home. Happy Fall!
