There can be a lot of joys in homeownership, but it also takes a lot of work. Home maintenance is an ever–present task. A change in seasons is usually a time for such maintenance. Here are some tips to keep your home in great shape this time of year.
- Check your home for cracks, leaks and gaps. This is a good time to seal up any points of entry for pests and places where air escapes.
- Take a walk around your yard and perform a visual check on your roof. Note any loose or missing shingles and get them repaired.
- Clean gutters of any leaves and debris.
- Clean your yard.
- If you have a fireplace, make sure it is clean. Hire a chimney sweep to make ensure it is not a fire hazard.
This time of year is also a good time to have a review of your homeowners insurance. At Weeks & Associates Insurance, we will be glad to review your policy whether you have it through us or not. Contact us for a no obligation review.
