How to protect your home from winter weather

Protect your home from freezing weather hazards with these simple tips:

Add extra insulation to attics and basements to prevent leading to more ice build-up.

Provide a reliable backup power source. If there’s a power outage, continuous power will keep you warm and prevent frozen pipes.

Have your heating system serviced at least once a year to prevent fire and smoke damage.

Check pipes closely for cracks and leaks and have them repaired immediately.

Take steps to prevent flooding. A licensed contractor can help you prevent flooding from melted snow and ice runoff.

Insure your sewer backup. Flooding can overburden sewer systems and can cause thousands of dollars in damage.
