Fall Maintenance Tips For Wichita
Home Repair & Handyman Services For Autumn
The dog days of summer are ending. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are beginning to change color, and cold weather will be here before you know it. Here’s a brief checklist of fall maintenance and home repair projects designed to keep your family safe and your home’s exterior looking great:
- Repair Any Damaged Siding: Damaged siding can allow water to seep into your home’s foundation, causing wood rot, rust, and other problems. It can also allow precious heat to escape in the cool fall and winter months. Repair any damage you have to your home’s siding now, before the cold weather arrives.
- Make Sure Your Doors & Windows Seal Properly: Windows and doors that don’t seal properly are a tremendous drain on your home’s ability to retain heat. Here’s a tip to check for properly sealing doors: close your door on a dollar bill, and then try to pull the bill out. If it comes out with little to no resistance, your door may not be closing securely. To check for drafty windows, hold a lit incense stick near the edges of the window. The smoke will alert you to any leaks in the seal.
- Keep Those Gutters Clear of Leaves & Debris: The Autumn leaves are beautiful, but once they fall from their branches, they can cause major problems for homeowners by clogging gutters and drainpipes. Make sure your home’s gutters remain clear of leaves and debris, and a ready to do their job should a storm come.
