Preparing for Winter

HomeLife-HOLIDAY-EDITION-2019-BANNERContributed by Gerald Michaud, Broker-Manager – HomeLife/Realty One Ltd., Brokerage. — Some of us don’t really like to talk about it, but the reality is winter is indeed coming. Love it or hate it, we all need to be mindful that winter can take a heavy toll on your property. Consider these simple preventative measures which can certainly help maintain the integrity of your property through the winter months:

Know where the water shut-off is

  • Get a furnace & A/C inspection – cleaning
  • Inspect your home for leaks / cracks and pay extra attention to the basement. This is especially important in the transition from winter to spring once the ground begins to unfreeze
  • Clear your eaves troughs
  • Have your roof Inspected
  • Drain all pipes leading to outdoor water faucets including garden hoses
  • Cover up any equipment outside that could be damaged, i.e. BBQ, A/C unit
  • Stock up on some bags of sand or ice melt for your walkways, and spread it at night and again in the morning to prevent slipping on the ice

As your neighbourhood Realtors we are here to help and answer your questions. Happy Holidays!
