Maintenance tips to prepare your property for the winter
Preparing for the cold, along with the potential winter storms that come with it is important for a few reasons: its both cost and time effective, to name a few. A handful of tips that may help prevent unwanted waste of time and money can be found below.
1. Clearing all the drains on the property of debris.
2. Be aware of snow buildup on your roof. Every roof has its own weight capacity, and exceeding that can cause long term problems.
3. Cracks and weaker walls that are already in the structure will worsen with the dry winter air. Get these checked out in the fall to avoid larger bills down the road.

Expecting the Unexpected
Whichever the season, whether it's winter or summer, the weather conditions and temperature outside your home will not match the inside. Unless your home is properly prepped and sealed, the outside weather conditions can have a big impact on your home. Floods, in particular, can occur at anytime and anywhere. To ensure that you and your home are protected, here are some weather-proofing tips from SERVPRO of Staten Island.
Weatherproof Windows and Doors
Seal all gaps around windows and doors. Not only will this keep flood water out, but it can cut your heating and cooling bill significantly by maintaining a consistent internal temperature. Check for gaps that are larger than 1/8-inch, and consider sealing those.
Incorrectly angled or clogged gutters can catch rainwater and other debris such as leaves and twigs, causing overflow. Water can then be redirected and leak into your home, causing wall damage in addition to interior damage of your home. Check for proper gutter installation and alignment, and frequently clean out your gutters to prevent overflow.
Inspect the Attic
The attic is usually the last place many homeowners will check for any signs of damage or need for repairs. If left unfixed, this can lead to water leakage during rainy days. During the day, check for streams of light entering the attic through the roof.
Weather proofing and preparing for a flood can avoid the need to elevate, demolish or relocate homes. Taking the proper precautions, making the right repairs and being prepared for the unexpected is a cost-effect approach and solution. It can save you money, time and the headache of dealing with a larger disaster or damage on your home.
