    February 24, 2022
  • As we see the seasons come and go, we have to be prepared as homeowners to understand that with each season, there are different ways to prepare your home for the different changes that these seasons bring about. If you live in a place like the Caseyville, IL area then you understand that all of the four seasons are completely different. We may have a random warm day in the wintertime, or snow in March, but for the most part, the seasons stay the same.

    One season in particular that this blog is going to focus on is Winter. With the leaves on the ground, colder temperatures, and snow falling, we want you to be prepared to not only take in all the beauty but make sure your home is tidy during this time. If you want to know the tips and tricks to keep your house maintained during the winter season, we encourage you to continue reading on!

    Inspecting Gutters and Downspouts.

    With the winter season, one of the biggest changes that do occur is when the trees have all shed their leaves. Although this can be a beautiful time, and one for lots of pictures, bonfires, and leaf piles, it can also be a disaster for your gutters and downspouts. Take the much-needed time to hire a professional to clean your gutters, so that they are free of any loose debris that these trees give off. This will help prevent damage from your roof or siding. With that being said, if your home does not have gutter guards, this may be the best time to collect some.

    Have A Professional Inspect Your Roof for Winter Weather

    If you see any shingles that are torn, curling, or buckling during the time of the winter, it is the best time to get your roof repaired or even replaced. With one more season until spring, this is the best time to have it done. By doing this, you are prepared for the ice and snow that is something we in the Caseyville, IL area deal with. Don’t wait for the snow to happen, and then be left with a mess, get this job done sooner so you don’t have to worry leather.

    Repair any Sidewalks for the Winter

    With these winter months already in full force, another thing you should take into consideration is making sure there aren’t any cracks or holes that are in your sidewalks. This may not seem like a problem now, however when the snow starts to fall, and ice starts to stick, you might be running into a more serious issue than you thought.

    Add Lightning to the Outside of Your Home

    Since the weather is getting colder, that also means that it will be getting much darker outside. To make it easier for your home to see outside when it’s only 5 pm, make sure that you are taking the time to add lighting to the outside of your home.
