Home Maintenance Tips for Fall includes cleaning gutters

8 Home Maintenance Tips for Fall

Fall is the perfect time to care for big exterior home repair projects before the shorter days of winter come along to make things more difficult. The hazardous winter weather can limit your time outdoors so make the move now and improve the appearance of your home’s exterior before it’s too late. Liberty Builders of Texas is here to help give you an idea of what to look for when it comes to exterior home care. Check the following items off from your list of fall home maintenance repairs and projects.

  • Care for Trees and Shrubs
    The fall of leaves from existing trees on your property is about to take place. Rake them up, but first, inspect your trees for any dormant or dead areas and trim them away.
  • Examine your home
    Look for signs of damage to your home by taking a walk around your property and inspecting your roof, siding, and foundation. If you spot something out of the ordinary, act on it now before the winter takes effect.
  • Replace your Siding
    Update your exterior paint job before the season changes if you feel your home needs an updated look.
  • Seal Gaps
    Critters, such as mice and raccoons, tend to find shelter indoors during the colder months. Make sure areas like your laundry room, garage, and pantry don’t have gaps and holes that lead outside.
  • Clean the Chimney
    Schedule a chimney cleaning and maintain the cleanliness of it throughout the cold months. Add a cap to your chimney as this will prevent critters from entering your home through the roof.
  • Maintenance the Heating System
    Ensure your heater is in working order before turning it on.
  • Check Weather-stripping
    If the weather-stripping on your windows and doors are damaged, it’s time to replace them to cut energy costs and improve heating in the house.
  • Clean Gutters
    Keep this task on the end of your checklist because after most of the leaves have fallen from the trees, you’ll want to start cleaning your gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters can damage your roof and siding.
