In the next few weeks, it might be a good idea to take a break from football and take a few steps toward protecting your home and gaining some peace of mind with a little fall home maintenance. Keeping up with these 5 simple tips can keep your home protected and beautiful all year long.
Tip #1 – Winterizing Your Home
Winterizing your home also means weather-proofing your home, and should be a top priority for every homeowner performing fall home maintenance. Properly sealing the doors and windows will save you up to 20% on your energy bills. To start, check the status of the current weather stripping around your doors and windows. A good test is to see if the weather stripping compresses against both sides of the door or window when it is shut. If you see gaps or feel a temperature change, it is time to replace it.
Tip #2 – Have a Roof Inspection
Calling in a professional like A-Top Roofing and Construction is the way to go here. It is never a good idea for homeowners to climb onto their roofs from a safety standpoint. Have your roof checked for the following:
- Cracked Shingles
- Missing Shingles
- Discolored Shingles
- Improper attic Ventilation
- Roof Stains from inside the attic
Tip #3 – Gutter Inspection
This one is an absolute must for fall home maintenance. Cleaning your gutters is an awesome defense against clogged gutters, which can lead to roof leaks. Did you know that A-Top Roofing and Construction have over 30 years in gutter cleaning and gutter replacement services? Again, safety is a top priority and homeowners should call a professional if they need help inspecting or cleaning gutters.
Tip #4 – Yard Inspection
Walk your property. Put away all lawn furnishings, pool equipment and toys and bar-b-ques that may be ruined if you leave them out. Also inspect your property for fallen tree limbs and finish off your clean up by raking up all the leaves.
Tip #5 – Other Winterization Tasks
Shut off water to the irrigation and drain the lines, this will avoid and frozen or cracked valves and hoses. Shut off water to exterior hoses where appropriate and store away hoses to avoid damage.
