Autumn is creeping around the corner with all its glorious fall colors. We should keep in mind that the cooler weather is on its way.

Preparing your home during this time is always a great idea. A few things you could do for example is to get that fireplace ready for those cold, cozy winter nights by getting that dirty chimney cleaned out. (by a licensed professional is always recommended). Consider checking for air leaks around your windows and doors. A little weather stripping can go a long way when sealing up those air leaks.

Also, clean out the gutters as debris and leaves will always pile up.It causes issues and even bad leaks in your basement.

Enjoy this beautiful weather as summer fades away,  although times feels a little crazy these days be grateful we live in such a beautiful area of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
