Happy New Year! Proper upkeep of your home is essential and the start of a new year is a good time to make a home checklist. So, here are just a few of the things you’ll want to consider. Check the basement and foundation for cracks, the toilets for leaks, and inspect the interior caulking around tubs, showers, and sinks. Drain and flush the water heater, clean and repair gutters and downspouts and inspect the roof to make sure the flashing around chimneys, skylights and vents is in good shape. Be sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are working properly and have fresh batteries. Finally, don’t forget to check the weather stripping around windows and doors and lubricate hinges and locks. Start this year with a healthy home
