From cleaning your gutters to sealing gaps around your windows, there are certain tasks you can do in and around your home to ensure that the next few months of cooler weather bring little surprises and no home repairs. We’ve put together a handy checklist for you to refer to as you get ready for all of the coziness ahead:
[ ] Clean gutters to prepare for freezing/thawing [ ] Check for leaks in windows and roofs [ ] Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors with weather-stripping and caulk [ ] Repair damaged roof shingles [ ] Cut trees and shrubs, especially if future snowfall will cause them to bend and rub against your home [ ] Turn off all outside water and sprinklers [ ] Close shut-off valves, then open the outside faucet to drain the line [ ] Fix damaged walkway or driveway, as well as steps [ ] Store summer tools and prep fall/winter ones
[ ] Have the furnace inspected by a professional and replace filters [ ] Clean dryer vents [ ] Make sure the fireplace is thoroughly inspected
When your home is properly prepared for the weather ahead, you can truly sit back, relax, and enjoy it all without any interruptions. There’s so much to experience this fall, whether you’re excited to head out for fall-themed fun with your kids, local farmers markets, and more, or you simply like to relax at home and take in the change of pace and scenery, so make sure your home is just as ready as you are!
From all of us at Infinity Custom Homes, happy fall!
