Winter Proofing Your Home

Along with all the regular things you do to prepare for winter, such as prepping your snow-blower or buying salt for your sidewalks and driveways, your home could use some prep too. There are a few things you can do to make sure your home is ready for the upcoming winter season. If you want to ensure that no major issues will come up unexpectedly and want to spend a little less on your heating bill, we can help.

It’s really important to make sure your roof is in good shape. Set up a roof inspection so that it can be checked for any potential problem areas where there could end up being leaks. Also, if there are any tree branches hanging over your home, you may want to get them removed before they get weighed down by snow and ice.

A good way to save a little money on your heating bill during the Michigan winter, (and air conditioning in the Summer) is to make sure your home is properly insulated. Insulating your walls and attic can help keep all the warm air inside your home instead of escaping through the walls/roof. If you think your home could be letting all that glorious heat out, we can check on your insulation, compare to Michigan insulation standards, and see if that would be something that could help you keep the heat inside.

If you would like to schedule a roof inspection, or have us come out to insulate your Michigan home before Winter kicks into high gear, just contact us at 586-690-0227.
