Fall Home Maintenance: A Simple Checklist

Fall Home Maintenance: A Simple Checklist

September 05, 2019

Summer has ended and there’s a crispness in the air. While it might not be the most fun activity, home maintenance is an important task to tackle in the fine autumn weather. In doing so, you not only improve the curb appeal and functionality of your home but also prepare it for the winter ahead.

In today’s blog post, local gutter company Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY shares a simple checklist for fall home maintenance.

Protect Your Outdoor Living Area

Whether you have a porch, patio or deck, make sure that it is swept clean, removing any dust and debris. Check for holes and other signs of damage like cracking or chipped paint. Repair any surface areas that have been damaged over the summer using wood putty or a stone filler.

Perform Repairs on Driveways and Walkways

Rain and snow can erode the surface of driveways and walkways, so you’ll need to check these areas for any cracks. Fill in the cracks to keep them looking nice while retaining their function.

Clean the Gutters

Gutter debris can be hazardous to your home, especially during the winter months. Clogs prevent the entire system from functioning properly, causing damage to your home’s exterior. This fall, take the time to remove leaves, twigs and anything else that has settled in the gutters. While you are at it, invest in gutter protection. With Gutter Helmet systems, debris is kept out of your gutters while and the need for maintenance is minimized.

Check Your Insulation

Insulation is one of the most crucial components in making sure your home stays warm during the winter. Apply weatherstripping as needed. Start with your windows and doors to prevent drafts that could affect your home’s comfort levels.
