Fall to-do list: Protect your home and our climate

Fall to-do list: Protect your home and our climate

Practicing a little maintenance and fixing problems, before the rainy season sets in, can lengthen the life of the materials that make up your home.

More natural resources are contained in buildings than in the products that we use day-to-day. Wood, iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, chemicals, plastic, cement and lime and glass are the building blocks of our homes. And it burns a lot of natural gas, oil and coal to manufacture these materials.

Maximize these last few weeks of great weather to do a little good around your home.
