Ty's Tips

Fall Fixes
Fall is the perfect time for a little exterior maintenance. Check these items off your to-do list before the snow flies.

Seal up leaky doors and windows with weatherstripping. Sealing gaps more than 1/8 inch can save significantly on your winter heating bills.
 
Check your gutters to ensure they are clean and at the proper pitch. Full gutters or improper pitch can cause them to overflow, possibly flooding your basement or crawlspace. Gutters should slope between 1/16th and 1/8th inch per foot to stay in good working order.
 
Cracks in the driveway or sidewalks can get worse over the winter as water seeps in, freezes and expands. Fill cracks less than half-inch wide with acrylic latex concrete repair compound. For larger cracks, use a vinyl concrete patching compound, which can be troweled on for best coverage.
 
Check the attic for holes and proper insulation. During the brightest part of the day, check for any daylight streaming through the roof. Streams of light indicate a problem. For small holes, patch from the inside with closed-cell polyurethane foam. For larger leaks, perform an extensive repair before the first snow falls. Insulation should cover the tops of the joists. If it doesn’t, add more insulation to achieve an R-38.
