Seasonal Property Maintenance

Opening up your seasonal property is exciting – but it can also be stressful and a lot of hard work. Save your vacation time for actually enjoying yourself!

If you have a seasonal home, summer cottage, or getaway camp in Southern Maine, we’re here when it’s time to open it up for the season or close it down for winter. We can get all your services turned on at the beginning of the season so when you arrive you can start enjoying yourself immediately. And when the weather turns cold, we will come and get everything safely shut off and buttoned up for winter.

Here’s what we do to get your second home ready – so you don’t have to!

Turn the water on

We inspect all your plumbing for any visible signs of damage before turning on the water supply. Once this is done we turn on the water and check the water pressures, making sure everything is working properly before we leave.

Fill and inspect the hot water heater

We fill your hot water heater and stick around long enough to make sure it is coming to temperature and that it is operating properly with no visible leaks.

Activate the well pump

If your water comes from a well system, we prime and activate the well pump, checking to make sure water levels are adequate and that water is flowing properly.

Turn on outdoor showers and faucets

Many cottages and camps enjoy outdoor showers and faucets for hoses and sprinkler systems. We turn on all your outdoor water sources and make sure they are operating with no fixture damage or breaks.

Inspect and check all plumbing for leaks

Once we have all the water turned on, we inspect all the water lines to make sure there are no leaks or split pipes. We also check all the faucets and other plumbing fixtures to be sure everything is working right.

Check for any overall signs of damage

Maine’s harsh winters can leave damage to building exteriors. While we are onsite, we always take the time to do a visual inspection of your home. We look for damage such as missing roof shingles and siding, broken windows, fallen tree limbs and branches, and any other signs of damage or breakage. Of course we are on the lookout for signs of break-in or other disturbances as well.

You can depend on 207 Plumbing & Heating to have your place ready when you arrive!
