Even though winter has started and we already experiencing snow, it is it critical that you prepare your home if you haven’t already. When preparing your home, you need to pay extra attention to your exterior features including your windows and gutters. The last thing you want is snow or ice damaging an important part of your home that you could have easily avoided. Luckily, there a few simple ways to prepare and protect your home’s exterior for winter.
Clean Your Gutters
One of the simplest ways to prepare your the exterior of your home winter is to clean your gutters. You should have already cleaned all of the fallen leaves out of your gutters, but it is wise to clean your system throughout the winter. You want to avoid an ice dam forming in your gutter causing permanent damage. Having clean gutters is the most effective way to avoid roofing or siding damage.
Inspect Your Roof
If you are worried about whether your roof can handle snow and other types of winter weather, you should have it inspected. You can inspect it yourself if you have experience with roofs or you can contact a professional service. The professionals at Dibello Roofing will come to your home and inspect your roof for any cracks or damages. No one wants to deal with a leaky roof in the middle of winter.
Trim Your Trees
Even though it is cold outside, you should trim your trees to prevent them damaging your home during a storm. Trimming yours trees branches will prevent snow from cracking a branch on your roof or through your home siding. The last thing you want is to be left with costly home repairs after a snowstorm. Trimming branches is much simpler than you might think and only requires a lopper.
