Labor Day weekend signals the end of summer and the beginning of shorter, cooler days. Take a few moments from your busy weekend to tick these four items off of your to-do list to be prepared for winter.
SEAL YOUR HOME
Check around windows, doors and other openings such as exhaust vents for drafts. As much as 65% of your home’s energy cost is due to heating or cooling and drafts can cause a loss of up to 50% of your conditioned air.
CURB APPEAL PROJECTS
Labor Day weekend is a perfect time to finish up those last items on your summer to-do list, such as exterior painting to your home’s trim and doors and completing landscaping. Repairing and painting surfaces of the exterior of your home will add an extra layer of protection against UV light and moisture and can increase the overall value of your home.
CLEAN AND SEAL YOUR DECK
Your deck is exposed to the outdoor elements year-round and can take quite a beating. Give your deck a good cleaning to get rid of debris, build-up and mold then once dry stain and seal to provide added protection against the winter weather.
REMOVE DEBRIS FROM AROUND YOUR FENCE
Landscaping debris and vegetation can collect moisture which can lead to damage or corrosion of your fence. Remove the debris and should you notice any areas of decay along your fence, repair and seal to ensure it’s long life.
