Seasonal Tips

Winter will be soon approaching!

Here are some tips on how to prepare your property for the colder weather:

  • Clean out gutters and downspouts this will help prevent ice dams from occurring.
  • Clean out roof drains, especially on flat roof buildings.
  • Be sure all below ground drains for evacuation of rainwater are clear of debris (leaves, trash, etc.) for this winter's melting snows.
  • Change preset timers for exterior lighting in order to get the most efficient product and energy usage while still providing a safely lit environment.
  • Check nearby trees for damage that may have occurred during winter storms.  Have large loose/broken branches removed for safety.
  • All homes should have carbon monoxide detectors within 10 feet of bedrooms.
  • Change smoke detector batteries once a year.  We also recommend that the entire smoke detector be replaced every 5 years for maximum safety.
