The Ultimate Fall Maintenance ListSeptember 29, 2015
Preparing your home for the coming season is always a priority. After all, each new season brings with it a host of new conditions. Fall brings with it colder temperatures, which give you an excellent opportunity to be ready for winter.
Windows, Doors, and Gutter Fall Check Lists
Huff ‘N Puff looks at the different ways you can take care of your home and prepare it well.
Windows: Check for Leaks
Window replacement in Albany, NY, and the surrounding areas, is important because a lot of the burden of keeping your home warm falls on your windows. When these are worn, old, or damaged, your windows can allow air and water to leak in. Have us look at your current set of windows, and we’ll advise the best course of action that you can take: repair or replace.
Doors: Reinforce What You Have
Your doors tend to see a lot of traffic and use throughout the day. This can wear down not just the door itself, but also the supports that hold it up, like the hinges. If your door is starting to sag, the problem isn’t just restricted to the hinges, but may extend to the frame that holds it up. This is important because heavier doors require much stronger support because of the greater weight and functionality. Apart from reinforcement, another option would be to go for lighter materials.
Gutters: Go For Protection
Your home’s gutters are particularly vulnerable this fall because of the falling leaves. Dead leaves can collect in and eventually clog up your gutters, causing overflows that can potentially damage the rest of your home. With Gutter Helmet®, you get a cover across the entirety of your gutter that allows nothing in but water. Leaves and other debris get pushed off your roof to the ground where it can be swept away easily.
