Goodbye summer... Hello Fall!
 
Fall is a good time to take care of big home repair projects before shorter days (and in some cases, ice and snow) make outdoor work too difficult.  Take some time this fall to boost energy efficiency throughout your home.  Proper insulation, new windows, doors and weather strips & seals help keep heating costs down.  Make sure your home is prepared for the fall and winter seasons ahead. 
 
Here are some tips:
  • Trim trees and shrubs to help prevent damage to your home caused by winter storms
  • Rake fallen leaves to ensure good/solid spring growth
  • Clean gutters and downspouts
  • Make exterior repairs - (roof, siding, foundation etc.)
  • Seal gaps and small holes to prevent rodents and small critters from entering your home
  • Check walkways, railings, stairs and the driveway for safety
  • Stock up on winter supplies - (Check the condition of snow shovels and ice scrapers; replace as needed.  Pick up pet & plant-safe ice melt, Restock emergency kits for cars and home)
  • Shut off exterior faucets and store hoses
  • Check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors - replace batteries every 6 months
  • Clean dryer vents
  • Schedule a chimney cleaning and heating system maintenance
 
Even though the 2018 Pool Season is over, it's never too late to start getting the jump on next season. 
DCAC forms and Waivers of Liability will be mailed out and included with your 2019 HOA Payment Booklets.  Liability forms must be signed and received by the office before DCACs can be activated for the 2019 season.
 
If you're new to the neighborhood, if you're missing the necessary forms for 2019, or you've never had DCAC(s) issued to you and/or your family, please call or stop by the Dorchester Neighborhood Office during normal business hours any time throughout the year.
 
IMPORTANT TIP:  The Dorchester office is always busy just before and during pool season. Appointments may be necessary.  You can avoid the pre-season crowds by taking care of DCAC business early!
