  • Check the caulking shrinkage and cracking around the exterior of windows, trim and doors. Re-caulk areas that need repair.
  • Check the roof for loose shingles or broken shingles. Make the necessary repairs.Check your deck for missing nails/screws and replace them.
  • Power wash and stain the deck before the up coming winter months.
