Fall Maintenance Checklist Heritage Building (Canada) Mobile App
The Fall Maintenance Checklist Heritage Building app is a checklist for older heritage buildings.
How does it work?
The checklist includes checking the gutter and downspout for obstructions such as leaves, conducting repairs to mortar joints and other masonry surfaces, checking crawlspaces and basements for fungus or mold, inspecting the roof, looking for loose shingles, caulking cracks and openings, caulking window trims and doors, checking the heating system, including heat ducts and water pipes, checking smoke detector batteries, replacing screens with storm windows, draining hoses, and checking weather stripping. This checklist should prompt other checks - for example, when evaluating heating ducts, the furnace should be checked, and furnace filters should be replaced; when checking smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors should be checked as well; when checking gutters, the roof can be evaluated. Damage anywhere around the building should be noted. The fall checklist is important for preparing for winter, and the inclement winter weather.
