Granite Homes: Seasonal Maintenance Tips

While it isn’t official, the cooler weather is here and fall is just around the corner. As such, it is time again to revisit your home maintenance schedule.

It is important with the change of every season that you are aware of the items in and around your home that must be inspected. This task should be completed on a monthly basis to ensure that you are meeting the requirements for maintaining your home.  Starting in September it is imperative that you examine the exterior of your home to ensure that all items are functioning properly before the snow falls. It is important at this time of year to seal around all windows and doors, examine driveway and walks, maintain lawns, inspect air conditioning units and perform any maintenance on the furnace or HRV units. In completing these items, among other indoor and outdoor maintenance, you will ensure that your home remains in the best of conditions for years to come.

For the existing homeowner, comprehensive maintenance schedules can be found on both the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) website as well as on the Tarion website. These lists will provide you with the information you need to ensure your home is functioning to the best of its ability. If you are a new home buyer who has purchased from Granite Homes you can rest assured that you will be provided this information in your Homeowner Information Manual in addition to the Maintenance Schedule that is sent via email to each of their homeowners on a seasonal basis. This small gesture from Granite Homes is just another way we have set our company apart from the competition.
