Maintenance Tip of The Day

It's hard to believe, but winter will soon be upon us! Simple steps can make the winter more tolerable for your house:
  1. Clean the gutters and make sure the downspouts are clear and free flowing. This will help prevent ice dams that allow water to back up under the shingles.
  2. Check all of your storm windows and repair the damaged one. Make sure they close properly.
  3. Check the interior windows to make sure they seal and glaze or caulk them.
  4. Trim the limbs that are hanging over the roof; when they are heavy with snow and ice tree limbs dragging on the roof will damage the shingles.
  5. Check your walk ways to make sure they are free of trip hazards. It will make them easier to keep clean.
  6. Mow the grass and trim, be sure and remove volunteer trees growing in the foundation.
  7. Clean around the outside condenser unit.
  8. Check the exterior of the house for any loose or chipping paint and scape and paint them.
Simple maintenance can and will save you money and time in the future. And as you well know, whether it's your personal home or rental property, this is a major and important investment!
