Preparing Your Home for Winter
Winter can be a beautiful time of year; seeing the snow glisten from the reflection of the sun, watching large beautiful snowflakes gracefully fall onto tree branches, and the warm feeling that Christmas is just around the corner. However, winter can also be a harsh and cruel time, especially for your home or cottage. Here are three ways to help prepare your home before jack-frost arrives and does irreparable damage to your home.
Updating your windows can not only give you a picture-perfect view, but also keeps your home or cottage warm. Canton Aluminum also offers double and triple pane picture windows for energy efficiency to help save you money in the long run on your heating bill.
Make sure your gutters are clear from debris as gutters are essential for your home’s structural foundation. Gutters trap and carry water away from the home which prevent your basement or foundation from cracking, flooding and mold. Poorly installed or neglected gutters can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs, so it is important to make sure your gutters are installed correctly and clear from blockage before jack frost arrives.
Snow and rain are the true enemy of old and leaky roofs as they can cause not only cosmetic damage but structural damage as well. Canton Aluminum offers metal roofs which are both water and fire resistant to help ensure safety for you and your family.
