Fall Checklist


-See if exterior doors close tightly: Do they sag? Do they rub their door frames? Are latch plates or hinges loose? If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, spend some sweat equity to straighten the way your doors hang.

-Replace worn-out weatherstriping. If you can't find exact replacements, spring plastic strips, V-strips, or tubular gaskets make good alternatives.

-Repair air leaks around windows. On a windy day, use a lighted candle to find air infiltration. Make sure storm windows are in place. Fix broken caulk around window exterior. Replace broken weatherstriping. On old leaky windows, consider using plastic sheet insulator kits.

-Remove debris from window wells. 

-Remove leaves and twigs from gutters, downspouts, and leaf strainers.

-Check storm drains for debris.

-Examine your foundation for signs of termites.

Maintenance Tips

Thanks to everyone who came and supported us at the NARI tour of homes! We had a great turnout and wonderful fall weather! Here are some "Maintenance Tips" to get ready for the colder weather... 

Clean all Exterior Wood

Keeping the exterior of your home clean is not just for appearances.  If left to grow, wood destroying fungi and mold can and will do damage to exterior trim.  It is advisable to have a professional painter or pressure washer clean your house, because working with water near outside power lines is a dangerous job.

Exterior Caulking

Believe it or not it is very common for caulking to be the only thing between the inside of your walls and the elements.  It is recommended to use top quality caulk when doing this each Spring and Fall season.  Even hairline cracks if left unchecked can cause major damage to a home.

Furnace Filter

With your furnace in constant use during the winter months, check out the new high-efficiency pleated air filters.  And because the pleats have more area, it takes three times longer for the filter to become saturated with dust and dirt. It is recommended that these filters be changed every 90 days, verses 30 days for standard filters.

Porches:  Bringing the Outside In

A new trend in living and entertaining in Atlanta?  Based on the number of porches Weidmann has been asked to build this year  – it sure looks like it! 

Constructed as natural extensions of the existing homes, each project provides new space unique to the individual clients.  One client obtained an open, airy space which blends seamlessly with the existing hardscape through the incorporation of  brick and stone.  Another’s window on the world gave way to French doors that allow them to see and experience the great outdoors in their new screen porch.  One more client gained a complete entertainment space, with two distinct focal points – the screened porch that demands attention with the plasma television mounted above the mantle on the stone fireplace while the cooking station calls out for a barbecue.

Each of these porches and decks have added beauty and versatility, while increasing the value of the home at the same time.  The only problem – how do the homeowners keep this wonderful new space to themselves when the neighbors find out!
