How to Prep Your Home for the End of Summer

Posted on on August 28th, 2015

resizeAs we approach the end of summer, it’s time to start thinking about prepping your home for the cooler weather.  Here are a few tips to help you keep your home in good condition as the kids head back-to-school!

Home Prep Tips:

  • Seal Your Windows – Add outdoor caulking and sealing to your windows both inside and outside.  This will help seal any leaks and cracks, making your home more energy efficient before the cooler weather hits.  By sealing any air leaks, you can help save money too!
  • Maintain Your Patio – Wooden decks should be painted and stained as we head into September.  Replace missing bricks and level off any areas where tree roots pushed through during the summer months.  This will help your patio stay in good condition through the fall and even winter months.
  • Update Your Insulation – Home insulation is one of the most important ways to make your home energy efficient as the temperatures drop.  With spray foam insulation, all of the nooks and crannies in your walls are sealed.  This keeps your home a comfortable temperature no matter what the weather is like outside!

Customer Reviews

No Cleaning
"The team including the estimator was very professional. They explained the process and everything they said was going to be done was done. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home from work there was no cleaning for me to do after they were done. GREAT JOB GUYS."

-Seymour J. West Haven, CT

Work Was Done Well
"I got several estimates from several providers. The pricing seemed just ok with those other providers but something seemed off. Good Life came in and made sure that I was getting the correct amount of insulation (where the other service providers had under estimated) and helped me to get into a loan through the utility company for the cost of the insulation. Good life is a qualifying contractor for this and it saved me a lot of out of pocket expense. They came in and did what they had to do. They were professional and made sure the work was done well."
