Need Outdoor Maintenance? Get it Done While You Can!
If there’s anything that you’ve been debating about having repaired, replaced or tidied up along your exterior, now’s the crunch time to make it happen before the cooler weather sweeps in. Putting off those little items that have been pestering you throughout the summer shouldn’t be ignored because, as Canadians, we know just how quickly the weather can change. So if you’ve got a to-do list, get it done while you can so you can be well prepared when that first dusting of frost arrives on your doorstep.
Repair The Driveway
The driveway is often another area of the exterior that can endure a lot of damage, especially as it ages. If yours only has a few minor cracks in it, you can use a sealant, filler or cement depending on your driveway. Spending a little time now to handle these minor issues can prevent water from getting in the cracks and escalating the damage.
Interlock Patio Repair Or Replacement
If your interlock stones have been wobbling under your feet for the duration of the summer, or sprouting weeds, ignoring it will only make things worse and more costly come next summer. The great feature about interlock stone is that often when you have a few areas that are worse for wear, they can be replaced while leaving the rest untouched. This minimizes the amount of labour required and the cost, which will save you far more than if you leave your interlock to endure another winter.
Clean Out The Gutters
It’s that time of year again where you should be clearing out any accumulated debris in your eavestrough system. This is one of the important outdoor maintenance items that should be done now while the weather is favourable. There’s nothing worse than having to climb up on the ladder to do it once the weather has turned.
Clean And Seal The Deck
If you’ve had a newly installed deck that has yet to be properly treated for the winter, this should also be a priority on your to-do list for the end of summer. Even pressure-treated wood can be vulnerable to the onslaught of our Canadian winter. So it’s a good idea to clean the deck and then apply a seal once it’s dry to keep moisture from penetrating through the wood during the fall and winter months.
