FALL MAINTENANCE | KT Confidential EP 150

On this podcast, episode 150, Adrian and Ariel talk about the different maintenance activities you can do to prepare for the next season. Fall will be here before we know it, and the weather will have an impact on homes in numerous ways.

It is critical to clean your rain gutters, which is often forgotten. Get a head start now so you don’t have to repeat the process when it’s considerably colder outside. However, cleaning your gutters is only part of the job; while you’re up there, search for any leaks or cracks. Now is the moment to tighten any loose connections along the gutters. It’s also crucial that the downspouts are set back far enough from the home. If you don’t, you risk pumping all of the water back into the house, increasing the possibilities of flooding.

Seal any exterior cracks around window and door frames with your caulk gun. Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, and Walmart all provide a range of exterior caulk tubes to help you match the right hue. Sealing these cracks will assist keep moisture out of your home while also conserving energy, lowering your electricity bills.

A single cold night can rapidly convert minor fractures into large potholes. Cover cracks in your driveway with concrete sealant to prevent future damage and expansion. Furthermore, if you decide to sell your property in the future, ugly cracks in the driveway may deter potential purchasers.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two of them compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
