Fall is your chance to get your home ready for the Winter and cold weather. It’s important to get anything you can prepare so that your home will look great no matter what kind of weather we face in Massachusetts. Routine maintenance helps you avoid costly problems down the line. Check out our tips for getting your home ready. 

Inspect Windows & Doors

One of the easiest ways to boost your home’s energy-efficient is by opting for energy-star-rated windows and doors. Old windows and doors can become drafty, and that is energy and money right out the window. If your windows or doors aren’t creating a proper seal, consider replacing them; otherwise, they’ll be causing you problems well into the spring. 

Replace Gutters & Downspouts

The leaves are starting to fall from the trees already and covering the lawn. They’re likely clogging up your gutters as well, though if they’re faulty. If they’re able to collect water and temperatures drop, they’ll freeze, and it can lead to cracks and problems with your roof. It’s best to have your gutters at least inspected at this time of the year to ensure that they’re functioning properly before snow hits. 

Check Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

This tip is for the inside of your home. For your and your family’s safety, it’s imperative to make sure that your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide sensors are working. Check the batteries and make a 21st-century upgrade if you’re using an older model alarm. 

Professional Roof Inspection

Your roof is one of the main protectors of your home all year long, but it becomes especially important during the cold, stormy seasons. You should have your roof inspected by a professional a couple of times a year in Massachusetts. Any loose or missing shingles are telltale signs that it’s time for a new roof. 

Get Your Yard Ready

Falling leaves on your lawn look beautiful for a time, but it’s essential to rake them up to avoid damage to your grass. Old leaves can get moldy if they aren’t taking care of, so remove them, so your lawn will look great come spring. Also, be sure to store any patio furniture and shut off outdoor faucets to avoid damage.

Clean Your Chimney & Fireplace

If you have a fireplace at your home, it’s a great asset to supplement your heating system and add some character. It can be risky if not maintained properly. You should hire a professional unless you’re well versed in correctly cleaning a chimney.
