Prepping your Home for Fall Weather and Protection


Posted by: Janelle Bentz

Whether we like to admit it or not, fall is just around the corner and there’s work to be done if you want your home to be cozy and protected during the colder months. Here’s our top four favourite tips to get ready for autumn.

Seal any cracks on the outside (and inside) of the foundation of your house. 

Sealing cracks does a couple of different things. It stops leaks from getting inside your house as well as controls unwanted pests like spiders and other critters, from taking up residence in your home during the colder months.

Empty water from hoses or any other moisture bearing devices. 

Do this before the frost hits in October so that you can avoid damage to watering devices as well as, leaks.

SYOD! “Store your outdoor decor”!

Some of your garden friends might survive the colder months, so bring ’em inside!

Did you know that plants like tropicals and succulents and even tomatoes thrive inside? Quarter off a room that you do not mind getting a little dirty and bring them in to enjoy through the fall!
