If you’ve been following our seasonal home maintenance checklists, especially for October and November, then your home should be pretty prepared for winter. If not, then make sure you complete everything on this list before the end of the year!
One of the benefits of living in a condo building is the lack of maintenance required on your part. This perk is especially noticeable in the winter, but there are still a few things you should keep in mind as the temperature continues to drop.
It’s the first of October - can you believe Thanksgiving is just two weeks away?! Now is the perfect time to get an early start on your fall home maintenance, especially if you didn’t get a lot done last month.
So long sweet summer, it’s officially fall. While you were savouring the last few warm days we have here in the Greater Toronto Area, you probably didn’t get around to doing too much home maintenance. Well, the time is now.
The biggest concern I come across with homeowners in these new homes is the lack of backyard privacy. Functionality of the space is another, as these backyard lots often have odd dimensions – long and narrow, short and wide or pie shaped.
The first long weekend in August is a great time to get some quick home maintenance tasks done. If you’re heading up to the cottage, you can use this post as a to-do list for next weekend or the weekend after.
The good thing about July is that it’s probably one of the easiest months of the year as far as home maintenance goes, so you still get to spend the majority of your time travelling with your kids and hanging out in the backyard by the pool.
Sure, the cottage is all fun and games during the summer, especially around Canada Day, but keep in mind that there is always maintenance to be done (and we bet you didn’t get to any of it over the long weekend!).
