September Homework - Trim Shrubbery Away From The House

By

As 
we head into Fall and Winter, it is a great time to check around the exterior of your home and make sure it is ready for Winter.  Make sure to trim back trees and shrubs that have encroached on the house.  The general rule is to keep all vegetation at least 12 inches from the house so that nothing is touching the exterior.  This helps to minimize the chances for dry rot, mold and mildew, damage to the paint, and problems with pests.  At the same time, check around the exterior for peeling paint and cracks in the caulking.  It is a great idea to get these things repaired which will help extend the life of your home and improve the value of your investment.
