Top tips for winter home maintanance

    Check for leaks and blockages. Now is the perfect time when drains and gutters can get blocked by leaves and debris like twigs and bird nests.

    If anything obstructs the easy flow of water away from a building, damp can occur. If you notice that water’s falling sharply from a certain point on a gutter, there’s probably a blockage there, so scoop it out with a trowel, taking full safety precautions if you’re using a ladder.

     To stop gutters getting blocked, fit gutter guards, grates that block debris but still allow rainwater to get through.

    I felt very comfortable working to find the right house with Shannon.  I also knew I could call & ask her opinion on anything.  when I was struggling with the finance staff Shannon would step in and push to get answers & make sure that I was getting the credit information.  When the interest rate did not get locked & rate went up she was very helpful in assisting me to fight to get it fixed.
