As summer draws to a close and autumn is upon us there are many things for homeowners to look forward to. Cooler weather, fun outdoor activities, holidays, family gatherings, changing leaves, pumpkin EVERYTHING! Fall is many people’s favorite season, and with good reason!
While we are enjoying our beautiful changing seasons we also need to ready our homes for the upcoming winter, as well as perform preventative maintenance. Simple home upkeep can help to prevent thousands in repairs later down the road.

Check out our Fall Home Checklist below for ideas—-

Change air filters
Test smoke detectors & carbon monoxide detectors
Schedule HVAC service
Clean gutters & downspouts; consider installing gutter guards if you live in area where leaves fall
Plant flowering spring bulbs
Inspect and winterize all trim on windows and doors
Pressure wash and apply sealer to decks
Inspect roof for damaged, missing, or loose shingles & repair
Drain and winterize exterior plumbing
Inspect foundation for any cracks
Trim trees so they are a good distance from roof and gutters
Clean dryer exhaust and lint trap
Flush hot water heater and remove sediment
Check fire extinguisher gauge
Have chimney cleaned
Fertilize and aerate lawn
Inspect exposed wood for insects
Drain & winterize pools
These are just a few ideas of how to get your home ready for the upcoming cold months. Reach out to professionals for any tasks that seem too daunting or for a technical opinion. Preventative maintenance is much more cost affordable than emergency repairs!
