November Home Maintenance E-minder
o Check the depth of your attic insulation. Tighten up any that is loose and ensure none is blocking soffit vents.
o Add weather stripping around drop down attic stairs / access.
o Remove garden hoses from spouts, drain, and store for the winter. Wrap spouts in insulation.
o Insulate pipes in unheated spaces such as garages & crawls with newspaper or rags.
o Make sure well cover is tightly sealed to prevent pipes from freezing.
o Drain in-ground sprinkler system.
o Check weather stripping around doors and replace if needed.
- Shut off all exterior faucets and store hoses for the winter. Trust me, I have procrastinated on this chore and regretted it one frozen day.
- Clear gutters and downspouts and check for cracks and clogs.
