The change of seasons come on fast. Wasn’t it just yesterday that you were planning your summer vacation? Now it is officially back to school time, which means we’re zooming into fall. Before things get too deep into the season, you’ll want to make your home ready for fall with these helpful to do tasks:
Check the Roof
It should be easy to do a visual inspection of your roof from the ground. If you notice something that seems out of sorts, then grab a pair of binoculars for a closer look. If you feel comfortable climbing on a ladder, then check out your roof that way but that might be a job better left for professionals.
Get Your Chimney Clean
It might have been several months since you lit a fire in the fireplace. If you didn’t clean your chimney at the end of last winter season, then you definitely want to get it done before you light your first fire of the fall. It’s always good to not only get your fireplace clean but also inspected.
Stock Up On Your Firewood
The best time to buy firewood is when no one is thinking of firewood. That is right now. If you’re going to buy a lot of firewood for the entire fall/winter season, then it’s best to store it away from the house under some protective cover.
Inspect Your Siding
Along with checking for any damage on your roof, you also want to go around the entire exterior of your home and check for cracks or holes in your siding and foundation. Could probably do minor repairs but it’s important to plug up those entry points not only to keep out the drafts but also uninvited pests.
Clean Your Gutters
If you saw any icicles last year alone your rain gutters, then it’s a good indication that those gutters are clogged. You can wait until after the leaves have completely fallen off the tree before cleaning your gutters but if it’s been a while then you may need to make two trips up the ladder: one now and one at the end of fall.
Get Rid Of Your Rubbish
As you go through this fall prep, you may also spot a lot of rubbish you can get rid of.
