Another year, another winter, sure, this list is all about tips to prepare your home for winter, but you should be thinking about these tips well before the first frost of the season, preparation is key!
Here are several things you should keep in mind to maintain a safe and warm home this winter season.
Clear roof debris
Roof debris allows for potential water damming or even mold spots to grow, causing the roof’s integrity to be compromised.
Clean Your Gutters
Leaves, dirt, and other debris in the gutters can lead to drainage issues, resulting in heavy gutters. This can cause water build up, mold, and possibly even damaged or falling gutters.
Replace Sealant and Caulking
Sealing cracks in windows or other crevices ensures moisture won’t enter the building to cause water and mold damage.
Poor insulation can result in a substantial amount heat loss. Cold can permeate the roof and build up ice in attics and in framework.
Winterize Your Pipes
Failing to properly winterize pipes and heating systems can result in extensive damage to property through both damaged pipes and the resulting water loss in the surrounding areas.
Trim Your Trees
Wind and storms or heavy snowfall can cause branches to break and damage roofs and siding. Make sure you get your trees trimmed before winter sets in.
