Winterize Your Home

December 20, 2016

 

 


 

  • Install storm shutters, doors and windows; clean out gutters, repair any roof leaks, and have a contractor check the stability of your roof in the event of a large accumulation of snow.
     

  • Insulate walls and attic. Caulk and weather-strip doors and windows. Install storm windows, or cover windows with plastic from the inside.
     

  • Have safe emergency heating equipment available. For residences with functioning fireplaces, keep an ample supply of wood.
     

  • Install and check batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
     

  • Make sure you have sufficient heating fuel; you may have difficulty obtaining fuel in the immediate aftermath of a bad storm.
     

  • Service snow removal equipment, and have rock salt on hand to melt ice on walkways. Kitty litter can be used to generate temporary traction.
     

  • If you need to winterize your home or require an emergency repair, contact us at 718-469-4679.
