How to Prevent Property Damage this Winter

Freezing temperatures, high winds, wind chills, snow, sleet and ice will all arrive to Northeast region of the country shortly; so now is the best time (while it is still slightly warm!) to make sure your home and property is well prepared for intense wintry conditions on the horizon. Without being proactive now, you will run the risk of having to deal with expensive property damage throughout the colder months ahead.

Contact tree experts and ask them to perform an inspection of all your trees. They’ll check to see if any them are dead and need to be taken down, or if there are any weak branches that might have to be trimmed.

Climb up and inspect your roof or contact a company to do it for you; either way, it’s important to make sure your roof is structurally sound to withstand intense winds, heavy snow and other precipitation. Make sure the gutters, shingles, flashing and rafters are all in order.

Take a walk around your home and inspect your siding. If you notice that any of the panels are missing, unsecured or completely hanging away from your home, make sure necessary repairs are completed to ensure the protection of your home’s exterior.

Clear any loose objects around your yard that could potentially get tossed around by heavy winds and cause damage to your property or any of those around you. Tuck them away safely somewhere inside of your home, garage or shed.

If you haven’t done so already, retract or remove your awning so that snow and other precipitation doesn’t weigh it down and cause damage to the frame or a section of your home.
