The end of summer is a time when many are enjoying the outdoors and the last few warm days, but it’s important to remember to set aside time for repair projects around the house. Now is the perfect time to start preparing your house for the fall and winter months. If you don’t get them done now, you could find yourself knee deep in snow before you know it!
[list-ul type=”circle”] [li-row]One project we recommend doing is cleaning and inspecting your gutters and downspouts. The winter months are not the time to be messing around on the roof and when the snow and ice finally come, you’ll be happy it all has a clean area to run off to. However, if this isn’t a project you’re willing to do every year, New York Sash offers the Leaf Relief ® Gutter Protection System. Leaf Relief ® virtually eliminates maintenance! Its patented design allows water to flow freely while debris is lifted away from gutters with a gentle breeze.[/li-row] [/list-ul]

[list-ul type=”circle”] [li-row]Another project we recommend doing before winter comes is check your windows. After opening and closing them all summer, the seals have collected dirt and debris which may prevent a tight seal from forming. We suggest giving them a good cleaning! But if you notice the weatherstripping is worn down, it might be time to replace them. New York Sash vinyl replacement windows are custom ordered to the exact size you need and the style you want and are specially designed for harsh Upstate NY weather![/li-row] [/list-ul] [list-ul type=”circle”] [li-row]As well as checking your windows, you should check your front door. It won’t matter if the seals on all your windows are perfect if you’ve lost the seal on your front door, you’re still losing heat and energy. New York Sash energy efficient doors will save you money on heating costs and improve interior comfort this winter, as well as increase the value of your home.[/li-row] [/list-ul]
These simple projects could save you a lot of money and aggravation this fall/winter!
