As the winter season approaches, it’s the perfect time to tackle the home projects on your to-do list. If your list of home maintenance and repairs is too daunting, or you’re not sure where to begin, consider handyman services. They can tackle multiple projects in a day, saving you time and ensuring your home is ready for the cold weather ahead.
AAA Construction and Home Handyman in Calgary provides some ways they can assist you in preparing your home for the winter.
Sealing doors and windows
If you notice some rooms are draftier than others, or your home has cold spots, it may be due to your windows and doors not being properly sealed. This freeflow of outside air makes it difficult to regulate the temperature in your home, leading to higher energy bills. Sealing your doors and windows can ensure that your home stays cozy this winter, and will save you money on bills too. Handyman services can help re-caulk your windows and ensure they’re airtight when closed with new weatherstripping.
If the windows are damaged beyond repair, they might suggest a window replacement. New windows will improve home comfort, energy efficiency, and home value.
Cleaning your eavestroughs
Eavestroughs direct water away from your home, protecting your roof as well as your home’s foundation. However, throughout the year, debris can clog your eavestroughs, causing water to sit, or overflow. If water pools around your home, it can cause damage or penetrate your foundation. Neglecting gutter maintenance can also cause damage to your eavestrough system. Have a handyman check, repair, and clean your eavestroughs to make sure everything is clear for the winter. That way, when the snow melts, it will drain properly.
Fixing your siding
Siding takes a beating over the year from all kinds of weather, including rain, hail, and even the sun. Common problems with siding include fractures, dents, or peeling paint. Siding protects your home from the elements, especially the harsh weather in the winter. Damaged siding can result in water seeping into the cracks. After a season of freezing and thawing, the damage can get worse. Ensure your home is protected from the weather and potential water damage. Contact a handyman to inspect, repair, or replace your home’s siding if necessary.
Checking your home’s heating system
Paying attention to your HVAC system in the fall will ensure you’re kept safe, warm and cozy this winter. If you notice a problem with your home’s heating system, a handyman may be able to help. They can check the ductwork, filters, and hot water tank to make sure everything is in working order. If they discover a serious issue and you require significant HVAC repair or even a replacement, they can recommend an HVAC contractor to take care of that for you.
