4 Ways to Prepare Your Home For Cold Weather

7 Oct2015

So we realize Fall has just arrived, but here at KEVCO we like to think ahead. Now is the perfect time to start preparing your home’s exterior for Winter. It’s imperative that you complete all exterior work on your home before the weather gets too cold to do so, and KEVCO is here to help. Below are 4 things that should be on your fall checklist.

Pressure Wash Your Home The change in seasons can do a number on the appearance of your home’s exterior, and your home, driveway, shed, patio, and deck may appear filthy from the wear and tear of the seasons. Pressure washing is a great way to improve your home’s curb appeal and remove dirt accumulations that have built up from spring and summer. KEVCO specializes in pressure washing services and is happy to help!  

Clean Out Your Gutters and Downspouts Leaves are beginning to fall, and that means debris from trees will begin piling up in your gutters and downspouts. It’s absolutely imperative to tend to this problem before winter arrives. If you put this task off, damage can occur to your home leading to water damage and vermin infestation. Waiting too long will lead to water freezing in your downspouts, which blocks water from properly flushing out. KEVCO can save you a lot of time and annoyance by thoroughly cleaning your gutters and downspouts this fall.  

Clean Your Windows It is suggested that you have your home’s windows cleaned twice a year– once during Spring or Summer and once during Fall. When temperatures dip down too low you won’t be able to have your windows cleaned. To avoid dirt build-up over the winter season let KEVCO professionally clean all of your windows before the cold weather arrives. 

Check Your Deck For UV Damage Fall is when you should be preparing your deck for the off-season. After years of sun exposure, wood sealers break down and do not give wood the protection it needs. Chances are your deck has also experienced a lot of activity over the warm months, and has accumulated some dirt and damages as a result. Let KEVCO seal your deck and pressure wash the dirt that has built up from summer fun.
