Autumn Inspections-get your home ready

Autumn Inspections

It’s time to get your home ready for winter, whether you plan to sell or stay put. With an El Niño year upon the San Francisco Bay region, we are expecting a wetter than normal period to start the winter off, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

Get your home ready for winter

Get your home ready for winter

It’s time to get your home ready:

  • Walk around your home and look closely at the exterior walls, siding, and trim. Does anything need to be repaired to waterproof your home?
  • Inspect/clean your gutters and downspouts to ensure they are clear of leaves, sticks and other debris
  • Look at your exterior paint and trim for cracks that could let water in
  • Check your roof tiles or shingles for cracks that may cause leaks and damage
  • Check for gaps between the windows and door frames – anything larger than the edge of a nickel should be resealed with exterior caulk
