Scituate: Preparing Your Home for Winter: Exterior Home Maintenance.

By: Allison Q Guido (Almar Building & Remodeling Co. Hanover Ma)

Summer quickly turned to fall here in New England, and as I sit on my porch on this gorgeous fall afternoon making my own to-do list. I am very aware of how fast fall will turn to winter and that there may not be enough time to get everything done on my list. One of the big tasks I want to tackle is Preparing Your Home for Winter: Exterior Home Maintenance.

A well maintained exterior is important to how well your home’s interior can function. You should maintain your home for the same reason you go to the doctor, and maintain your car. Without regular maintenance small problems could become large and costly repairs that could have been prevented.gutters
