Quackenbush home maintenance avoid costly repairs

One of the keys to keeping your home comfortable and running smoothly is regular home maintenance. Home owners that neglect regular upkeep with their homes are risk of incurring large and unexpected expenses. In addition to an unwanted expense, a home in disarray can decrease your home’s value and make it harder to eventually sell. Experts strongly recommend regularly inspecting and cleaning your home. To help save time and money, consider tackling these easy fall maintenance projects to keep your home running well inside and out.

Monitor Your Roof for Damage. Ensuring your roof is in good shape requires a simple visual inspection. If shingles are cracked or missing, it is a sign your roof needs to be repaired. Another sign is water leaking through a chimney or skylight. Mold, insects, mildew or electrical problems are common problems associated with roof leaks and if left unattended can lead to a costly repair. If you’re not sure if your roof needs a major or minor repair, consider contacting a professional roofer for an assessment.
