Fall Home Maintenance

By | Homeowner News | No Comments

Now is a perfect time for fall home maintenance.  Taking a weekend, or two, to winterize your home is a great way to insure that your home is ready for winter weather.  Here are a few items to add to your ‘to-do’ list before snow starts to fall.

Fall Home Maintenance Tips

  • Clean and inspect your gutters. Make sure your gutters are free of any debris and are in good working order.
  • Leaking windows and doors.  The ‘flame test’ is still a great way to see if you’re losing heat.  Carefully hold a lit candle along your windows and exterior door.  A flickering flame may be a sign that the seal is failing.
  • Install a storm door. If you don’t have a storm door installed year round now would be the time to do it.  Installation will be more challenging when the temperature falls.

Everyone at Zeeland Lumber & Supply wishes you a happy and prosperous fall season.  If you have any questions about winterizing your home feel free to call the Zeeland Lumber & Supply team at 888-772-2119.
