As summer approaches its time to prepare for what comes ahead.
Things to do:
- Clean the gutters- If the rain can't drain then you risk damaging your fascia and soffits.
- Proper drainage- Make sure you have proper kick-outs and drain pads for your downspouts- moving the rainwater away from the house will prevent erosion and damage to your foundation.
- Touch up paint- Any where there is exposed wood, rotting can happen. Make sure you cover the exposed wood with good exterior paint.
- Clean your chimney- While burning wood in your fireplace, a fine layer of creosote is slowly building on the interior walls of the chimney flue. In essence creating a very real and present fire danger to your home. -
