Your home’s needs changes with the seasons. Seasonal maintenance ensures your home stays efficient throughout the year.
Here are ways to make sure your home is ready for the colder months
Prep Your Siding
Replace caulking that’s cracked, hardened or lost its seal. Freeze-thaw cycles can cause siding cracks, making fall an ideal time for a replacement.
Get a Roof Inspection
Have professionals inspect your roof before winter starts. It’s harder to address roofing issues when the surface is covered with snow or ice. Inspection is the most crucial step in roof maintenance. Via thorough inspection, contractors can identify the condition of your roof and find problems. Keep in mind that delaying roof repairs can make the issue bigger and more expensive to fix.
Clean Gutters & Trim Trees
Falling leaves can get stuck in your gutters and cause problems during storms. Clogged gutters can cause water damage to your roof and home’s exterior. Water that accumulates on fallen leaves can seep through the shingles and into your interior. Debris can cause stress to your roof and weaken its structure. For your safety, hire professionals to clean your gutters. You may also invest in a gutter protection system to keep your gutters clog-free.
Moreover, look for damaged limbs that may break. Trim trees near your roof to minimize fallen leaves and branches.
