As the weather begins to turn, it's the perfect time to ensure that you, your home and automobiles are prepared for the colder weather. Take a minute to read from our winter preparation check-list. Don't wait until the last minute! Making sure you are ready for winter could save you on costly repairs.
Winter Preparation Check-list
? Your roof should be free of debris that may clog gutters. Debris can also cause damage when blowing around the roof surface and pose a blow off risk to customers and the public.
? Be sure downspouts are secure, and able to bare normal ice and snow loads. A lack of positive drainage in the winter time can cause ice dams and roof leaks if not addressed prior to the winter.
? Check the condition of your tires. Do they have enough tread to get you through the winter? Is it time to change over to snow tires?
? During infamous Pittsburgh winter storms, low lying branches can break from the snow load and damage your roof, break windows, knock down your power lines. It is very important to identify these hazards now, and have them taken care of.
? Do you have a good snow shovel? Do you have ice melt and/or sand? Do you need to have your snow blower serviced? Do you have ice scrapers in all of your vehicles?
? Lastly, have you turned off all your water lines that go to the outside? Have you drained your hoses? If you have a sprinkler system, have you had it winterized?
