Your Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

Prep your house and yard for cold weather with this list of things to do in an hour or over a weekend

Laura Gaskill September 15, 2017    Fall is a good time to take care of big home repair projects before shorter days (and in many areas, ice and snow) make outdoor work too difficult.

(We spoke with an expert to find out what you need to do.) Tick these items off your list this season, and you can rest easy knowing that your home and yard are buttoned up and ready for winter.
