It's a good time to take a look at your exterior wood products like your windows, siding, trim, soffits, facia and look for caulk or paint cracking or chipping. I see to many time's where people ignore these sign's and once the wood becomes exposed it starts to break down and rot fast and this end's up costing people 5-10 time as much to repair. Almost anyone can paint there own properties if they have the time. Make sure if your property was built before 1978 to research lead paint. www.epa.gov is a good link for more info.
