Getting Your Home Ready for Fall

Here’s a helpful seasonal home maintenance checklist to help you spruce up your home for autumn:

  • Touch up any exterior paint on railings, frames and doors, and caulking around windows and doors.
  • Rake leaves and seed the lawn (tip: get the kids to help with this one).
  • Inspect fireplace and chimneys, clean if necessary.
  • Check basement for leaks or moisture.
  • Have humidifier, furnace and heat recovery ventilator serviced, and replace the furnace filter.
  • Inspect your roof (tip: use a pair of binoculars from across the street!) to check for any missing or damaged shingles and call a roofer for repairs.
  • Drain exterior water lines and shut off the water supply.
  • Empty your gutters and eaves of twigs and leaves.
  • Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and change the batteries (tip: do this whenever we have Daylight Savings!).

Curated Playlists for Your Favourite Rooms

You’ve heard of musical chairs, but what about musical rooms?

In our recent newsletter, we also shared a new trend, started by our design team at Stamp & Hammer Architecture.

The team at Stamp & Hammer has created curated playlists with music for every room in your home. Spanning across all music genres, the tunes accentuate different moods and vibes.

Salsa in the kitchen? Smooth jazz while sitting infront of your fireplace? Get ready to find the tunes that fits your favourite room in the house.
