Home Maintenance Tips for Fall and Winter

The cold season has already arrived in many parts of the country. Here in <your town>, <write about your weather conditions and what is expected this month.>


It’s important to prepare your home for the colder weather coming. Taking a little bit of time to winterize your home can save you a lot of time, and money, later on. Check out these tips for preparing your home for the fall and winter.


If you are in an area that doesn’t get snow, delete the last item on the list, and edit the remainder as you see fit. If you are in an area that is very hot and humid in the summer, you might also point out that the cooler fall and winter months are a good time to have your house painted (lower humidity) or have roof or screen enclosure repairs done (services aren’t as busy as spring and summer.)


1. Check window and door weather stripping for damage.


2. Disconnect water hoses and turn off outdoor water supply lines and irrigation system.


3. Wrap exterior water pipes or hose bibs with heating tape.


4. Clean your gutters.


5. Check your roof for damage or leaks.


6. Fill cracks in your driveway and foundation.


7. Check attic insulation for pest damage.
