Fall is in the air with cooler nights and the first hint of the leaves turning color -- can you feel it? While I know it's a busy time with school activities, sports, and business trips, some basic home maintenance now can make a big difference, saving you headaches AND money when the cold weather arrives. And if this winter proves to be anything like last year's, this checklist will pay for itself many times over.
We all learned the hard way how vital it is to clean and maintain our gutters last year! Be sure to repair any gutters or damage caused by ice dams -- if you're still struggling to get this done, please contact us for recommendations of reliable local contractors.
And with the season of hurricanes and tropical storms upon us, another vital reminder is to ensure your property is graded properly to direct excess water and run-off away from your home so it doesn't end up in your basement!
How about you? Anything on this list surprise you? Anything you feel is missing? Please share with us and may your cold weather preparations be successful!
