This Winter Maintenance Checklist Will Keep Your Home in Good Order!
Inspecting your home on a regular basis and following good maintenance practices is the best way to protect your investment. Whether you take care of a few tasks at a time or several all at once, it’s important to get into the habit of completing these checks annually leading up to each season.
With winter well on its way, it’s important to establish a regular schedule to help prevent the most common – and also costly – problems from occurring. Be sure to make notes and take pictures of anything you’d like to share with an expert for advice or to help monitor the situation moving forward.
This checklist will help guide you in keeping your home a safe and healthy place to live this winter and year-round.
Of course, if you don’t feel comfortable performing some of the home maintenance tasks listed below, or you don’t have the equipment on hand to properly complete each section, you may want to call in a professional handy person.
