WINTERIZING YOUR HOME



Winters can be rough on homes. Frozen pipe bursts, leaky roofs, and structural damage are just a few risks your home may experience. Protect your home with the following tips:


Ice Dams

  • Keep gutters and down spouts clear of debris, snow, and ice so melting roof snow can flow.

  • Keep snow on your house to a minimum. Roof rakes allow you to safely pull the snow off.

  • Evaluate your attic’s insulation and ventilation. Good airflow is essential for a cool, dry attic.


Frozen Water Pipes

  • Insulate pipes susceptible to freezing.

  • Drain water and disconnect garden hoses from outside spigots.

  • Ensure everyone in the home knows how to shut off the water main in event of a pipe burst or any other water loss.

  • When leaving for long periods of time, shut off the water main.

Thanks for sharing! Yeah, as winter drew on, frozen pipes are becoming the great issue for many people. By the way, it seems like you never mentioned anything about roof. Roof repairs prevents leaks, and mould growth, and also helps to keep the insulation in good condition.
