With Fall fast approaching, homeowners should prepare for the dropping temperatures and cooler weather in Tennessee to avoid damage to their home. There are some simple home maintenance steps a home owner can take to prepare.
- Check your gutters and down spouts to ensure that they are clean, debris free and water is free flowing.
- Add down spout extensions to divert water away from your foundation.
- Inspect windows and doors for damage to the frames or surrounding drywall.
- Make sure the weather stripping is secure to prevent drafts.
