Fall is finally here, and if you’ve not yet started, now is a good time to think about preparing for the winter. At Ipswich Bay Builders, we have come up with 5 helpful checklists for your home maintenance for Fall.
Check for peeling paint. Inspect for any peeling paint of blistering on the house exterior. This is a sign of the existing paint film is failing and it needs to be repaired. Failed to do can be costly in the future.
Clean the gutters. Check for leaves in the gutters and downspout and clean thoroughly. If neglected, the leaves will eventually clog the downspouts which could damage the roof and siding of your home.
Caulk Windows. Make sure to refresh caulk by sealing over the window and door frames. This will help trap any hot air coming out when the weather drops.
Inspect the Roof. Your roof is the first defense of your home. Be sure to be proactive by repairing any broken shingles as soon as possible. We recommend hiring a professional to take a look and provide any solutions for possible damages when winter arrives.
Seal the driveway. One of the easiest work many homeowners forget. Sealing your driveway with filler and with a commercial sealer will help extend the life of the asphalt through the winter.
