Fall Maintenance Tips
Fall maintenance is all about preparing your home for cooler conditions. Use this checklist to prep your home this season!
1. Clean your gutters - Clogged gutters can damage exterior surfaces. Before the leaves fly this fall, clean your gutters, then cover them with mesh gutter guards to keep debris out.
2. Seal up air leaks - Keep your home warm in the colder months by checking around windows and doors for air leaks. Use caulk and weatherstripping to seal up any drafts.
3. Inspect your roof - Check the entire roof for any damaged shingles and look in your gutters for granules which is a sign that your roof is losing its coating.
4. Protect faucets - If you live in an area that is prone to colder weather, you should take steps to ensure your outside faucets don't freeze. Drain the lines and shut-off valves that go to the outdoor faucets to prevent your pipes from freezing and bursting.
