Countdown to the cold

Contributed by kathy Flaxman for Weenen General Contracting Limited – Nippy, chilly days are soft-pedaled as sweater weather. Something warm but still great looking – that’s fall fashion! You can’t put a sweater on your home, but you can do things to make cold weather better inside and outside!
Look out the window – there are gorgeous colours as far as you can see. You might, however, feel a draft right thru your cashmere turtleneck. Windows let your house breathe but leaks and drafts can be energy gobblers and chill your home! Even if you’re living in a Victorian style architectural gem, there are lots of options that will be a great fit design wise. “Any facade work has to meet Heritage criteria, often meaning replicated period appropriate features,” Owen Robinson of Weenen General Contracting Limited points out.
Fall is also an excellent time to take care of exterior work. Bumps and cracks in walkways will get worse when Mother Nature adds snow and ice. That sagging retaining wall might not hold up well to a dose of freezing, or worse, freezing, thawing and freezing again. Stroll around outside before you have to switch your sneakers for Blundstones and take a look. “Most years this work can continue into late November,” Owen says. “It’s definitely best to make these repairs before temperatures drop,” he adds.
If you act now, you can keep your residence from feeling like the Snow Queen’s palace!
