Houses in Calgary Need to be Ready For Winter.
Check your roof:
Checking for leaks in your roof can save you lots of time and money. IF your roof is in good working order you won’t need to worry about heavy snow causing damage. Or, spring temperatures melting the snow and causing leaks. Have a professional inspect your roof if you aren’t sure what to look for. If you suspect there is an issue with the roof, it’s best to have it looked at before it’s too late.
Trim Branches and Trees:
Trimming branches and trees can improve growth in the following spring, but also guarantee your house doesn’t have a branch come through the kitchen window during the winter. Heavy snowfall and wind can cause branches to snap and fall off. If your home has tree branches hanging over it, you’ll want to get pruning. These can damage windows, walls, and roofing if you aren’t careful.
Have a Furnace Inspection:
The last thing you want this winter is to be painfully because your furnace broke. It is best to have your furnace professionally inspected in the fall. Although, if you have not yet had this done, now is the time to do so.
Clean out Your Gutters:
With winter comes snow and with snow comes water. This is bad news if you have clogged gutters. Clogged gutters can make for a leaky roof and household flooding. Be sure to remove all of the gunk from the last few months to ensure you stay leak-free this winter and spring!
