Good Day All! Well now that we are on the eve of 9-11, the storm Hermine and our 1 year anniversary. Lets get back to blogging. As you may had experienced with the tropical storm, some projects may need more attention now. September is the best month to start your project planning for the fall. A lot happens with weather and the seasons changing. So we wanted to share some helpful tips with you to keep in mind that the holiday season is going to be knocking on our back door. So lets begin.
The exterior of the home and yard is a great place to start. Look on the roof for debris and branches. Check your gutters as well. In the next few months we in the Florida area will still experience more storms. Drainage systems must be cleared all the time. While checking around the home, trim back the bushes and shrubbery. A great project may take about 18 inches of width around the stone and place stone as again to assist with drainage away from the home. And if you have a fence, now is the good time to check your fence posts and gates. During heavy rain and wind these may become out of align.
Now for the interior. These items on any fall maintenance and project planning are always over looked. So we thought we would share. To start, check your all your screening. This includes your lanai or screen porch. Get these repaired as we are entering the fall and will be using more fresh air then a/c. Then clean all your window tracks of debris. During the storm you may had notice some moisture intrusion. This maybe why. Now lets take a look at your bathrooms and kitchen. Check all your caulking and grout. If the caulk does not look fresh, now is a great time to redo it. Ask your self, when is the last time your grout was sealed. Is the grout color turned or black. Again, this maybe a great time to redo this as well. Lastly, as the cooler temperatures are among us. This is a great time for us to think about up grading insulation in the attic. And checking the drywall for any water stains that may have occurred.
So this may seem alot as far as what to do on your home. But it really is not. Make a list of items that you may see that need attention. If you a bit of help. Give us a call. We will be more then glad to assist you in any manner we can. From Dade City to Holiday and from Hudson to Wesley Chapel Florida we are here for you. 352-437-5300 or www.pascoremodel.com
