Now is the time to winterize your home, to help avoid costly repairs later.
Here are a few helpful tips that can protect your home as it gets colder:
– Take a close look at your roof, looking for any damaged or missing shingles. Get those spots replaced.
-Clear out your gutters and downspouts, making sure they are free of debris and leaves.
-If you have a wood deck, consider adding a fresh coat of paint or sealant to protect from the weather.
-On a windy day, close up all your windows and feel for any air leakage. Seal those leaks with rope caulk.
-Install or replace the weather stripping on the sides or bottoms of any leaky doors.
-Insulate exposed plumbing.
-Clean out the air conditioner’s condensing unit, removing any leaves or debris.
-If you haven’t had your chimney cleaned in a few years, hire a professional chimney sweep.
