Well, it sure feels like fall and that gets us thinking about those outdoor projects. Now is the time to look and making sure the gutters are cleaned out and secured to the house. If you have clean gutters, this could help with ice dams this winter. Look at the windows. Do they need to be chalked and are the storm windows on and the screens put away in the garage?
Water shut off. Typically, you will have outdoor faucets in both the front and back of the house. Make sure the water is turned off for the season and the faucets opened up to let out the excess water. This will help prevent the pipes and faucet from freezing. Also, if you have a sprinkler system, I like to unplug the main box for the winter. Keep in mind that the pipes for the sprinkler system needs to be blown out for the winter.
Check all outdoor lighting, including landscape lights. It is much easier to do now, versus when we have a foot of snow on the ground.
Look for missing or broken boards on the house. Have you been meaning to repair the molding on the garage where you hit it with the car. How about loose or cracked siding.
If you have items that are on the To-Do List that you could use some help with, give me a call.
