2023 Fall Maintenance Checklist

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

Proper home maintenance during the fall months doesn’t necessarily revolve around the current season! Because fall is one of the milder seasons in terms of climate, it’s a great opportunity to prepare your property for the harsher seasons ahead. Especially in an area like the Northeast, winters can be especially brutal. Making sure that your home is prepared for the challenges that lie ahead is paramount. But what tasks should you be focusing on this fall to give your home the best protection for the winter ahead? We’ll give you our expert recommendations below!

Get A Roof Inspection & Repair Any Damages

There’s a reason why we believe that fall is the best time to get a roof inspection done – as we mentioned earlier, fall is one of the mildest seasons for climate! Especially with an unforgiving winter on the horizon, ensuring that your roof is ready to brace the challenge should be of utmost importance. Even if severe weather hasn’t recently impacted your area, schedule a roof inspection anyway. This will help you to identify and repair the small issues with your roof that could balloon in the wintertime if left unchecked. It’s the best way to prevent future roof leaks!

Inspect And Clean Your Gutters

Gutter maintenance is most crucial during the fall months, and it’s easy to see why! When the leaves fall, there’s no telling where they’ll end up. If your property is surrounded by tall trees, there’s a good chance that some of these leaves may end up in your gutter system! One leaf may not be a huge issue, but it can quickly morph into a disaster as leaves continue to fall. They can quickly clog your gutters and leave rainwater with no place to go, which can lead to devastating water damage! Cleaning your gutters regularly in the fall will ensure that these systems are appropriately prepared for what lies ahead.

Apply Weatherstripping When Necessary

Are your windows looking older, but you can’t afford (or don’t have time for) a replacement? Weatherstripping is the best way to not only save money on your energy bills but also keep unneeded water damage out! Inspect your home’s foundation, siding, and windows, and apply weatherstripping and caulk wherever necessary. The more holes that you can fill, the easier it will be to stay comfortable and dry throughout a cold winter season.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
