Fall Maintenance Tips to Protect Your Home This WinterWith the cold winter months ahead, it’s time to prepare your home for the ice and snow ahead. Whether your concerns are protecting your siding from damage, or ensuring that exterior water faucets are secure, following these tips will help prevent damage from the freezing winter weather.

Look On Your Roof

If you have cracked or missing shingles, these can allow moisture in and heat out. Make sure that your roof doesn’t need any major repairs before the winter weather sets in.

Check All Doors and Windows

You will want all of your doors and windows to have a good seal, so that the cold air stays out of your home. If you have old windows or doors that cause a significant draft, the heat lost through these sources can be huge.

Have Your Heating System Serviced

As you prepare your home this fall, this is a good time to have your heating system serviced by a reliable technician. Yearly maintenance on your heating system is always recommended.

Have Your Chimney Swept

If you have a fireplace, make sure that it is clean and ready to use this winter. Have a professional come in and give your chimney a good cleaning so that you reduce your risk for fires when you want to use your fireplace.

Check Your Pipes

Water damage can be a big pain when the weather freezes, so check all of your pipes to make sure none are expose to cold temperatures. Insulate any pipes that might experience freezing temperatures, and look for leaks that could be a big problem if the weather is freezing.
