Tornado Season Is Over, What To Check For Before Winter Takes Hold

Someone inspecting a homes siding and windows before the next season.

The end of the tornado season and the arrival of the cold season is the perfect time to do a thorough checkup of your home, just to make sure that it is ready to protect you properly during the winter.

Check the thermal insulation

Inspect your windows and doors and, if they do not close tightly, replace the locks and insulate them as much as possible using sealing strips or other handy solutions. It is not a bad idea to plan a project to replace old doors and windows with energy-efficient ones.

Check the roof and gutters

The roof is your home`s first line of defense against the elements and it is essential to determine whether it needs repairs in order to solve any existing or potential problems that may worsen during the winter. You do not want to experience roof leaks in the middle of the cold season which would require someone to access the roof when it is frozen or slippery. Also, make sure to clean the gutters and downspouts, to prepare them for the upcoming blizzards, snow, and snow melt.

Inspect the trees near the house

If you notice that they have dry branches, cut them in time to remove the danger of them falling over the house, during the first winter storm. If you cannot do this, safely please hire a tree expert that can assess and resolve such situations without risk.
