Fall in Boise Already?!

Posted by Boise Home Helper on September 10, 2012

Believe it or not the last week of Summer is upon us here in Boise! It seems like it was just last week that we were wondering if the sweltering heat would ever see an end; yet here we are already getting the coats out of the closet and thinking about starting the Christmas shopping.

Even though it’s not quite the end of Summer just yet, it’s still a good time to start taking care of seasonal home maintenance items before they get the jump on you!

Here are some good tips to help you keep your household in great shape for the change of seasons ahead!

 

Check for Drafts
Feel for drafty windows and doors. You can use a lighted candle near entry points to your home to detect where you might be experiencing air leaks. Keeping the heat in your home over the winter can save you big bucks. Talk to our Boise HVAC Pro if you need help!

Roof Check!
Here’s one place you do NOT want to have to deal with mid-winter! If you are able to do so safely, now is the time to at least give your roof the quick once over to check for loose shingles or leaks. Need a roofer in Boise? Talk to our Roofing Pro!

Clean the Gutters
Keeping the gutters clear of debris can really help make things run a lot smoother, especially as we have the more wet Fall months ahead of us. A good once over should do the trick, but if your gutters are hard to reach or just too much to take on All Valley Window Cleaning can help you take care of them – or you can give our Boise Handyman a call also!

Faucets,Hoses,Water
Winter will be a terrible time for leaks or burst pipes! Get ahead of those items by inspecting your water systems. This includes blowing out sprinklers, storing hoses, and making sure outside faucets are weather ready. Our Boise Plumbing Expert can help you with any of your plumbing questions or needs.

Chim-chim-cheree!
Chimney sweeps aren’t something just out of Mary Poppins – and if you’ve ever experienced a clogged or dirty chimney you know they are no children’s faerie tale! A filthy chimney is not only inefficient but it can be a real hazard! Keep your house warm and safe – talk to our Chimney Sweeping Pro!

No matter how long your list of honey-do’s and get-ready items may be the Boise Builders Group can help you get those things marked off your list! Get your home ready for the Winter now so you can enjoy these fast fleeting months of Fall in Boise while they last!
