Fall is here and winter is right around the corner. What should you be doing right now in order to prepare your home? Here’s what I recommend:

1. Seal the cracks. If you have any cracks in your foundation, driveway, or windows, this can create huge problems down the road. Consider having those handled before it gets too cold.

2. Paint your exterior woodwork. This is another place where moisture can get in during the winter and cause rot.

3. Remove your hoses from outdoor spigots.

4. Check your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Make sure those batteries are switched out, too.

Any cracks in your driveway or foundation
should be sealed before winter.

5. Clean your gutters to prevent ice damming.

6. Check your chimney and fireplace. Make sure they're clean and make certain that everything is sealed really well.

7. Check your windows and doors for drafts.
