Is your House Winter-Ready?

It’s common to convince yourself that it’s too late to take care of winter prep this year, that with the big freeze as good as here you might as well wait until the spring to replace a screen or clear out the eaves. Winter doesn’t push a pause button on home repairs. Snow and ice still thaws and re-freezes, even in January, causing further cracking, warping, rotting, or breakage. Take a good look around now and save yourself from surprise mid-winter repairs or even worse when spring has sprung.
