Becoming Winter Ready At Home

Roofs, water pipes, and gutters should all be inspected to help ensure they are in working order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your home.  Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the Fall.  Leaves and other obstructions can cause a damming effect, which can lead to roof damage and interior water problems.  Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing.  If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open, allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. Regarding outdoor faucets, consider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space.  Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure it drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
