Fall Maintenance Checklist

Are you ready for winter?  Even though it's off to a slow start here in the Hudson Valley, it's right around the corner.  Your home is your one of your most valuable possessions, so don't take any chances and not be prepared.  Here are some tips to keep you warm and worry free over the winter.

  • Stow your lawn mower-add stablzer to your gas to keep it in good condition over the winter
  • Store your hoses and turn off the outdoor water source
  • Drain and turn off your sprinkler system
  • Seal cracks around your doors and windows-Exterior caulk is easier to work with on days over 50 degrees
  • Clean and tighten your gutters & downspouts-clogged rain gutters can cause ice dams
  • Inspect your roof-look for cracked or broken shingles & replace if necessary
  • Direct drainage away from your house to avoid water soaking in around your foundation
  • Get your furnace serviced and replace furnace filters if necessary
  • Prune your plants and trees to keep the limbs and branches away from your roofing and siding
  • Give your fireplace a once over-with a flashlight look up for blockages and check that the damper is working
