Winterizing Your Home in Rochester NY or Raleigh NC

Check Your Gutters
You should prevent ice dams from forming by cleaning out your gutters, installing gutter guards, and making sure your attic floor is properly insulated. These will allow you to keep your gutters relatively prepared for the coming weather, letting you tackle the winter without a ton of worry or losing confidence.
Seal Cracks Around Home
We recommend you caulk up any holes, cracks, or other openings you might see around your home. This will help keep the cold air out, letting you stay warmer. We also recommend weather stripping around windows, doors, air conditioners, and other areas.
Insulate Your Pipes
Finally, we recommend that you protect your pipes from freezing by insulating those that might be at risk. Severe temperature drops can be extremely hard on your pipes, so keep a stream of water running to prevent freezing and bursting during the coldest days.
Overall, these are just some of the many house-winterization tips we recommend you employ this winter. There are many others, of course, and you should also make sure to check your car as needed. To learn more, or to take a used model for a test drive, contact our dealership today!
