How to Prepare Your Home Exterior for Winter

Home Maintenance for Winter

As the weather begins to drop, it can only mean one thing; Winter is arriving. Just like preparing your wardrobe or car, you should already be keeping your home maintenance in check for Winter preparation. Here are some key points you should consider before it gets too late.

  1. Gutters. It’s essential to clean out your gutters before it gets too cold. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and overflow, which can cause damages to your roofs, siding, paint, and even your basement.
  2. RoofWe recommend hiring a professional to inspect your roof shingles for any damages or deterioration. Also check for damaged flashing around vent stacks, chimneys, and skylights as leaks often start from there.
  3. SidingWalk around your house to check for any warps or damaged parts before the snow begins to drop. If there are any sign of weaknesses in your siding, you should contact a professional to replace or fix as soon as possible.
  4. Windows. Do you feel a sudden draft coming out of your windows? Do you see gaps between the window and molding? If so, you should consider replacing or fixing it, as inefficient windows will make your home feel colder and add more energy costs.

By following these points will help maintain your home throughout the Winter. For more information about our services, please feel free to get in touch and contact us at (980) 255-2075 and we will come over to your home and provide a free estimate.
