Fall Home Maintenance Tasks

deck cleaningIn the coastal NC region, fall means the beach crowds are thinning out, the night air has a little crisp to it, and the days are getting shorter and a lot less humid! Yes, fall is a great time of year for our little corner of NC and it’s also a great time to give your home an autumn checkup. We understand that taking good care of a home is a year-round job, but there are certain projects and small tasks that every property owner should do in the fall to prepare for the winter ahead. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a short list of fall home maintenance tasks we recommend.

1. Clean those gutters!

Gutters and downspouts can get clogged and cruddy pretty quick around here. With the abundance of pine trees, oak leaves, and birds looking for a place to nest, homeowners in the Wilmington area should take special care to ensure their gutters are cleared of debris. We know most people don’t enjoy cleaning out gutters, but this simple home maintenance task doesn’t take a whole lot of effort and can save you from bigger, more expensive repair costs in the future. If the thought of cleaning gutters makes you cringe, or if you simply don’t have the time, Colour Solutions can help! We offer gutter cleaning as one of our many home maintenance services[Read more…]

More Tips on Keeping Your Home Fall Fresh:

* Make sure your lawn and garden are looking their best, so that it can complement your beautiful home. Keep lawn trimmed and control weeds.
* As summer fades, leaves and branches fall and flowers can die off. Pick up any yard debris quickly and plant some fall-friendly flowers like chrysanthemums and maybe even add some fresh mulch to landscaped areas.
* Keep your home’s exterior clean and mildew-free.(See more information on our pressure washing services.)
