With the cold days of winter getting close, it’s time to think about important home maintenance jobs for the fall. Preparing your home for the coming months can be one of the most important things you do as a homeowner to protect the value of your property. Here are three jobs to complete now to keep your home in the best condition.
Inspect your roof
In our area that tends to get a lot of wind and snow, this is critical. Check your roof for any damaged areas or loose shingles. A small issue now could turn into a big problem come springtime. While you’re up there, clean out your gutters too.
Water your lawn
Before your lawn goes into dormancy for the winter, give it some extra water during the fall to protect it from drying out. This is also a good time to put down a final spreading of fertilizer. Once you know a heavy freeze is coming, then you can shut off your water for the season.
Check your seals
Take a look at your windows and doors to ensure they’re well sealed to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. If anything needs to be replaced, it’s better to do it now than when the temperatures really drop. This can also help to reduce your energy bill during the long winter months.
