Fall home maintenance is important in preparing your home for the chilling winter temperatures Minnesota brings.

Fall Maintenance Checklist

If you live in the upper-Midwest, chances are you’ve experienced a harsh winter or two. We don’t just mean the sub-zero temps, but also the affects on a home like ice dams, burst pipes, and the struggle to snow blow the driveway.

While the weather might not be in your control, prepping your home for the winter season definitely is.

We’ve compiled a comprehensive, but easy-to-follow checklist that outlines the most important tasks you should complete to ensure your home is ready for the colder months ahead.

More to Consider

Cracks, Crevices, and Faulty Seals

Frigid weather can make its way into your home through a multitude of different ways. That’s why it’s important to inspect high-traffic problem areas like weather stripping on doors and windows, cracks in the foundation or driveway, and gutters and downspouts.

Appliance Maintenance

Fall is the prime time to make sure all of your indoor and outdoor appliances are working as they should. Obstructions, water damage, and faulty power sources could cause some of your appliances to work harder than they need to, driving up your heating bill and potentially creating an unsafe environment for you and your family.

Do It Yourself Vs. Done for You

Most of the tasks in our checklist are easy to accomplish all on your own, but for more complex or tedious chores like inspecting your roof, be sure to schedule an appointment with your local exteriors company.
