Fall is the perfect time to hammer down those home maintenance projects to prepare for colder days ahead! Whether it’s simply raking the leaves or making exterior repairs, this checklist should help remind you of important things to do for your Bozman Farms home this fall.
1. Trim the trees and shrubs.
It’s a good idea to keep your trees and shrubs clean and trim before winter brings the harsh weather and storms. Maintaining your trees and shrubs in the fall, will keep them healthy through the cold season to come. Do this by trimming the dead parts and limbs to give them a better chance of survival this winter.
2. Rake the leaves.
Now, we all know Texas can be unpredictable when it comes to weather. One day it could be sunny and warm, and the next it could be 24 degrees and icing. Make sure you are prepared for whatever weather may come your way, and rake the leaves in fall. Too much snow covering leaves in the winter may inhibit spring growth of your lawn. Prevent this from happening by raking your leaves often in the fall.
3. Repair the exterior of your home.
From the roof to the floor, check for any damages that need repairing. Keep your home safe and warm by sealing those small holes in the doors and repairing any damages to the roof. When it becomes snowy and cold, it will be difficult to make any necessary repairs to your home. So make sure you do your home maintenance exterior repairs this fall before it’s too late!
4. Add or repair weather stripping to your home.
Last but not least, add weather stripping to your home. This will keep the cold air out of your home and add extra warmth to your Bozman Farms home. Not only will you be feeling extra comfy and cozy, but you’ll also be cutting energy costs by keeping the winter weather out. Read this simple how-to on repairing or adding weather stripping to your doors!
We hope this fall home maintenance checklist will better prepare you for the weather to come, and keep you safe and warm this winter in Bozman Farms!
