Preparing Your Home for Winter – Part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post, now is the time to prepare for winter and fix those items that can help you have a more secure, warm and better insulated winter. Doing these repairs and improvements now in the “off-season” will help ensure that you can not only find the right talented professionals to do it, but take advantage of non emergency pricing.

In this segment of the article, they talk about everything from proper insulation, windows, insulating your pipes, gutter, lawn care etc…

While the list of preparations may be daunting, you can always find qualified professionals to help. The money you spend today will be repaid to you multiple times over in energy savings and by preventing more costly repairs.

But whatever you do, do your homework and find a contractor you can trust (Like Kelly Custom Homes in Central New York) who will work with you and your schedule and is more interested in the long-term relationship instead of making a quick buck.

Just be sure to take advantage of the limited summer weather to get these projects done. No one likes climbing on a roof to smash ice dams or crawling through a freezing crawl space to thaw a frozen pipe. Well almost no one, there are people out there that are thrilled to do it for you, just as they are thrilled to watch you empty your wallet into theirs.

If you have any questions, just drop me a line. I’d be happy to help.
