Fall checklist to prepare for Winter

Before the Fall season disappears into severe snow and ice weather, you need to prepare your exteriors for the long Winter months ahead. Accomplish these tasks this Fall before it’s too late.
1. Clean and stain your deck. A professional low pressure, steam clean and stain application will help your deck survive another season of snow and ice. Deck cleaning and deck staining is one of our most popular maintenance services.
2. Caulk around windows and doors. Check the joints in window and door frames. If the gaps between siding and window or door frames are bigger than the width of a nickel, you need to reapply exterior caulk.
3. Clean out the gutters. If your gutters are full of debris, water can back up against the house and damage roofing, siding and wood trim. Also, it may cause leaks and ice dams. Inspect for missing or damaged gutters, soffits, and fascia boards and repair them. Installing gutter guards is ideal to prevent and deter future build up.
