Preparing Your Home for This Winter Season

Napa Valley real estate resides in one of the best climates in the United States so maintenance on one’s home is often far less troublesome than places where it snows or has extreme temperatures. With that in mind, luxury real estate does still need maintenance no matter how amazing the weather is. Peeling paint, overgrown trees, and all sorts of manner of slight nuisances can become big problems over a relatively short time. So, let’s have a look at five ways you can get your home ship-shape and ready for the rainy season!

Seal up all the gaps!

Napa Valley real estate doesn’t have excessive winds or torrential rain, but having the cracks around all your windowsills and door trim sealed can help not only reduce your heating and cooling costs but also make sure your home stays in one piece going forward. Luxury real estate can be maintained with something as simple as paintable latex caulk from your local hardware store.

Get your pool ready for winter

Many pieces of Napa Valley real estate come with fantastic amenities, pools being one of the most notable. That being said, backyard pools either need to be winterized or drained for the season and each remedy has its pros and cons. But if you keep it full, be sure to adjust your filter and clean out all the gunk and leaves from the inside of the pool.

Touch up the paint!

Even luxury real estate needs a new painting every once in a while. By doing so you don’t just keep your home looking nice, but just like with caulking, you’ll keep water out of the nooks and crannies of your house.

Don’t forget upkeep on the trees

There are many gorgeous trees all over our towns but the ones that come with your Napa Valley real estate can be a burden or a downright hazard if you don’t care for them properly. But beautiful, well-kept trees can be an excellent addition to a piece of luxury real estate as they are less likely to clog gutters with leaves or fall on the house in a storm. A local certified arborist is best as they can get to even the top branches and make sure the tree looks its best!
