We’ve had a few days that remind us the cooler seasons are coming...along with the weather it brings. Now is the time to be proactive in getting your home and garage ready for harsher weather. Here are some suggestions to keep the heat in, and the water out of your home and garage.
Outside the Home
Remember last year’s snow that dropped 2 feet in most areas? As it melted, many homes experienced leaking and damage around windows and doors that had small gaps or cracking where a nice tight seal should have been. If you have any windows or doors that are ground level, check them for gaps that may be problematic. You may be able to address smaller cracks by replacing caulking or using a spray insulation product. If you see larger holes or rot, replacement of the whole window may be required and a professional should be called.
