That winter weather is coming! There is a lot you can do to help keep your home in tip-top shape throughout any winter storms your area encounters.
Here is a short list of preparations you can do before the snow starts falling:
- Check roof tiles, shutters, siding, and other exterior materials to ensure they’re secure
- Seal air leaks around the home to keep it warmer (and save energy costs)
- Insulate all exposed plumbing pipes to prevent burst pipes
- Trim tree branches away from your roof to prevent roof damage
You will also want to be sure to clean your gutters. This is not only important to prevent ice dams in winter, but can help prevent other damages throughout the year.
