How to protect your home against Ice and Snow
The Triad is in for a blast of wintery weather and we’ve got a quick list of some simple things you can do to protect your home.
- Sealing up any Drafty Windows and doors
The natural gaps that occur around windows and doors can make it difficult to keep your house warm. Using caulk or weather stripping to seal these areas will help. In some of the older historic homes of Ardmore and Washington Park, windows may be constructed of single-pane glass and the doors are constructed without modern day insulation. Investing in updating those areas might be something to look at in the future.
- Protect Water Pipes in Uninsulated Areas
- Keep that attic cool
Believe it or not, you should not be heating your attic the same way you heat your home. Snow and Ice Dams can ruin your roofing and lead to all sorts of issues. To keep your attic cool, make sure it is properly ventilated and seal any holes or cracks in your ceiling leading to the attic.
- Clean out the gutters and downspouts around your home.
While we hope you never experience a disaster in your home, we do know we are ready to help you restore it in the event of one. Just give us a call any time 24/7 we are always here to help.
