or woodstove, it’s a good idea to stock up on wood or pellets during the fall months before winter hits. Swap Window Screens for Storm Windows. Remove screens and install storm windows. Clean
and repair screens before storing them in the basement or garage. Clean Windows and Doors. Clean windows and any sliding door tracks to ensure they operate smoothly all year long.
