Here are some tips from us on how to winter proof your home:

1. Inspect your roof and gutters

One of the most important things you can do to winter proof your home is to make sure your roof and gutters are in good condition. Check for any missing shingles or damage and repair or replace them as needed. Also, clean out your gutters so theyre free of leaves and other debris. This will help prevent ice dams from forming and causing damage to your roof.

2. Caulk & weatherstrip around doors & windows

Another way to prevent heat loss and drafts is to caulk and weatherstrip around doors and windows. Check for any gaps or cracks and seal them with caulk or weatherstripping. This will help keep warm air inside your home and cold air out.

3. Insulate your attic

Another important area to insulate is your attic. If your attic isnt properly insulated, heat can escape through the roof and cause your energy bills to increase. Add insulation to your attic to keep heat in and save money on your energy bills. 

4. Drain & disconnect outdoor hoses

Be sure to drain and disconnect all outdoor hoses before the cold weather hits. Once the water freezes, it can expand and cause the hose to burst, which can lead to expensive repairs.

5. Cover or remove outdoor furniture

If you have any outdoor furniture, its important to cover it or bring it inside before the first frost. Outdoor furniture can be damaged by freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall.

By taking a few simple steps, you can winter proof your home and protect it from the elements. Contact Impact Home Solutions if you need help with any of these tasks were happy to help!
