Winterizing The Outside Of Your Home
Winter is fast approaching. Time to make sure our homes are ready to handle the cold weather. There are a few steps you can take to winterize the outside of your home.
Clean The Gutters
We always like to stress the importance of cleaning your gutters at least twice a year, one of the most important times being in the fall. Once all the leaves have fallen ( which should be around this time) that is the perfect time to clean out your gutters. It ensure that they won’t be clogged during those winter months when wet snow is sitting and melting from the roof. You may also want to consider installing gutter guards to help keep your gutters debris free. Call a professional or DIY, just get it done.
Finish Up All Yard Work And Store Equipment
Most of the grass has stopped growing so that means it’s time to pack up the lawn mower, weedeater and other lawn work equipment. You may also want to consider storing your patio furniture as well. This will help prevent premature aging of your lawn furniture as well.
Store And Close Your Outside Faucets
Making sure that you properly store and winterize your outdoor faucets can be important to ensure that not damage happens to them during those cold winter months.
