HANDY HOMEOWNER: Fall in Love with the Ease of Home Maintenance

Posted on Oct 20, 2022 by dreeshomes

Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping and we're here to help you seal, caulk and clean like a pro. Mild temperatures make this the perfect time to caulk your windows, seal your concrete and clean out those clogged gutters.

Gutter cleaning

Fall foliage is beautiful, but as the leaves begin to fall, they can cause gutters to become clogged. Clogged gutters can affect drainage, leading to leaky roofs and water damage. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to clean the debris. 




Concrete sealing

Sealing your concrete before winter prevents cracking as the temperature gets colder. If left exposed to the harsh winter climate, your concrete driveways and walkways could weaken and crack. Watch the video below, grab a few tools and enjoy smooth sealing! 





Autumn is the perfect time to seal your windows with caulk. Sealing your windows before winter rolls in will ensure that warm air stays in your home and cold drafts stay out. Additionally, caulking prevents water damage and promotes energy efficiency. 




Garage door maintenance

As temperatures drop and home maintenance projects move inside, it’s a good idea to work on your garage door to ensure it opens and closes quietly. Yearly maintenance saves you from having a screechy garage door.
