Fall Maintenance Tips
  • Make sure the weatherstripping on all doors and windows is in good standing, and repair where needed.

  • Make sure all garage floor or driveway drains are flowing properly.

  • Inspect roof for loose or missing shingles, and check flashing seals; repair as needed.

  • Re-seal/re-stain any decks, fences, or other structures made of pressure-treated wood.

  • Clean out your gutters of any fallen leaves or debris.

  • Trim and prune bushes, trees, and shrubs - with the exception of those that flower in Spring.

  • If you have a wood burning chimney, check your furnace every year; if it is gas-running, every 5 years will suffice.

  • Check damper in fireplace for obstructions, such as birds' nests.

  • Drain off sediment from hot water tank and steam heating system.
