Get Your Home Ready for the Season: Maintenance Tasks for Fall
It’s that time of the year where the air turns crisp and nature puts on a vibrant display of foliage for all to enjoy. As you soak in your favorite fall traditions, make sure you don’t neglect your home maintenance tasks that should be accomplished before winter sets in. Elevated Roofing & Siding can help you to not only improve your home, but to prepare it for the colder months ahead. Let’s take a look at a home maintenance checklist of items that may require your time and resources this (and every!) fall season.
Clean Your Gutters and Downspouts
Your gutters should be cleaned about twice per year, but the timing of the cleanings is key. Ideally, you should clean them late in autumn, once all of the leaves have fallen. Clear the leaves and other debris out of your gutters, and check to ensure that water is flowing freely to your downspouts and away from your home. You can either take care of this yourself, or hire a professional to err on the side of caution.
Inspect Your Roof for Damage
Take a look at your roof and make sure you don’t spot any signs of damage, such as missing shingles. If you have any concerns, our experts can come and inspect your roof to determine what type of solution you need. You don’t want to go through the fall and winter season with any vulnerabilities in your roof that could turn into a leak or other problem.
Get Your Chimney Ready to Be Used
Time is running out to schedule any chimney repairs and reinforcements you may need before it’s cold enough to start using it. The masonry professionals at Elevated are equipped to make any necessary repairs to your chimney, including completely rebuilding it if that is what needs to be done. Don’t risk using a fireplace or chimney that may not be safe enough to use without some modifications.
Service Your HVAC System
Routine maintenance of your HVAC system will help ensure it will run smoothly all fall and winter long. Often, smaller problems are identified and addressed during preventive maintenance visits before they have the chance to become much larger and more expensive problems. It's always best to be proactive when caring for the major systems and appliances in your home.
