Weeks following the New Year always seem to be sweeping with modification. Chilly seasons, removal of holiday decorations, going back to school or work all rushes down on us at once. Along with changing seasons comes the harsh weather conditions, freeze and thaw phases, and organic growth which all inflict damage on your home's structure.

Homeowners can obtain peace of mind for their homes throughout the winter by taking some time to identify problem areas ahead of time.

Preventing Water Leaks

It's easy to forget how many openings are inside of our homes, from:

  • windows
  • roofing
  • doors
  • siding
  • plumbing
  • ect.

All these wall penetrations provide a possible one way ticket for water to enter your home, as well as the potential for other pests to protrude. Staying observant to changes in your home that you may be unaware of is recommended by top experts. 

Investing in custom made windows is a great way to stay ahead of this problem. Getting energy star certified and custom measured windows, like Guardian Elite Series Windows, is the best choice.

Protecting the Roof

The fall leaves are the perfect excuse to take that Instagram photo or go for the pumpkin spice option at Dunkin'. Falling leaves and pine needles make their beautiful scenery on the ground, they are also building on top of your home's roof. With fall long gone, those leaves may not be visible on the ground anymore, but they could be clogging up your gutters or downspouts. 

Avoiding this buildup on your home's roof can help decrease your risk of water freezing and thawing up there:

  • leaves
  • pine needles
  • dirt run-off
  • heavy snow buildup
