Now that September is here, take a few minutes to check over your home’s exterior.

It’s a good idea to take care of needed repairs before snow and ice create added stress for roofing and siding.

Remember, a little maintenance now can prevent more expensive repairs down the road.

  • Check caulk and weather stripping on doors and windows.
  • Have your chimney inspected and cleaned.
  • Schedule an inspection of your heating system; replace furnace filter.
  • Clean and inspect dryer hoses and vents.
  • Be sure your attic has enough insulation and proper ventilation.
  • Check roof for damaged shingles or flashing.
  • Clear gutters and downspouts.
  • Blow out sprinkler systems.
  • Winterize or insulate exterior faucets.
  • Drain and store garden hoses.
