- Does your home need updated exterior painting? Now is a great time to tackle this job while the weather is more consistent. If you are planning to do the painting yourself, be sure to check with a professional to see which type of paint will have the longest life expectancy.
- Are any of your tree branches causing a hazard or obstruction? If your area experiences snowy and icy winters, or other extreme weather, now is the time to have tree limbs removed that are over power lines or simply tree limbs that are dead.
- Does your roof need to be repaired or replaced before winter sets in? Now is the time to have your roof inspected and any repairs completed before your roof leaks and causes damage due to snow or ice.
- Are your windows older or just need caulking or weather stripping to keep out the colder air? Have this taken care of now to keep heating costs lower. Also, replacement windows have a high return of investment for your home.
- Could your home benefit from additional insulation? Insulation will help you save on your energy bills this winter. It is a good idea to talk to a professional to maximize your savings.
- Time to clean your gutters? This is a project that often gets overlooked but definitely needs to be taken care of. If your downspouts or gutters are clogged, the result will be water onto your roof, attic, and home. This is also an inexpensive project as the average price for a professional to clean out your gutters is about $200.
- Is your fireplace prepared for winter? This is an extremely important task as creosote can collect on your chimney walls with debris clogging your flue. If this happens, you will have a fire and health risk. Be sure to have your fireplace and chimney inspected and cleaned before each winter.
