Start With the Roof

When was the last time you took a long hard look at your roof? It’s not just seeing it as you pull up to the house but getting close to the joints and rain gutters.

Move On To the Rain Gutters

Not only could there be leaves in there but also birds’ nests left over from spring. Pay careful attention to the areas where your gutters are attached to the roof. There shouldn’t be any signs of rust at those seems.

Check the Foundation

The best rain gutters are ones that pour the water away from the house by at least 4 feet. That protects the foundation from water damage. Still, you need to walk around the entire home and check your foundation for cracks. That same type of inspection should be for your driveway and concrete patio. You don’t want to wait until winter to fix those cracks because once water gets in there and freezes it to make them even worse.

Clean Out the Fireplace

Cleaning out your fireplace is one of those jobs that is best left for a professional. They will literally have to clean from the bottom and from the top. This should be something that is done on an annual basis that if it has been a while since you had your fireplace clean then expect a lot of soot to be removed.
