While October can be unpredictable in Colorado, warm autumn days are perfect for some fall home maintenance. So, before it’s time for winter fun, we suggest that you use this handy list to prepare your new home in Colorado Springs for shorter days and colder temperatures.
Say farewell to Summer by cleaning and putting away the outdoor toys and furniture. Empower yourself to donate or dispose of items in need of repair or no longer desired.
Clean and stow your lawn mower and service your snow blower.
Make sure hoses are disconnected and the sprinkler system is drained before freezing temperatures.
Clean and store your grill and prep the firepit for winter fires with friends and family.
Clean your gutters to avoid ice dams when snow melts and freezes.
Inspect your roof for any necessary repairs. Jayden Homes, a Colorado Springs custom home builder, suggests that you hire a pro for this task!
Check weatherstripping around doors, windows, and garage doors.
Prune trees and plants and prepare your landscape beds for winter.
Have your furnace and fireplace serviced. Remember that it’s still necessary to change your HVAC filters on a monthly basis.
