Check the Roof – The roof protects us and our home over the winter – keeping us warm and dry. So make sure that you don’t have roof damage such as missing tiles, and also take some time to unblock gutters which can be full of autumn leaves at this time of year.

Check the Garden – Outdoor evenings in the warm garden are long gone, and it is time to make sure that the garden is ready to endure the winter weather. If possible, put things away for next summer in a shed or garage, such as kids toys and garden furniture. Or protect it with a cover. You will also need to check that the furniture is weighed down in case of any large gusts of wind over the winter.
