Get Your Beaverton Home Prepared for the Michigan Winter With These 4 Tips

Michigan winters can be especially harsh, and while you are busy winterizing your car, your wardrobe, and your life, don’t forget to get your house ready for the onslaught of cold, snow, and sleet.  Taking care of your home is especially important because home repairs can be very costly, and the integrity of your home’s exterior and its structural durability is a large part of what protects you and your family from the harsh elements of Mother Nature.

Make sure your home is ready for the changing season with these winter weather tips:

  1. Make sure your roof is structurally sound and has no leaks, missing shingles, or weak spots.  These can be places where snow and freezing water pool and leak into your attic or overhead crawlspace, doing damage to the interior of your house.
  2. Properly insulate any exposed or exterior pipes and plumbing before the cold weather arrives.  Freezing pipes can burst, causing you to go without water until they can be repaired.
  3. Check all doors and windows to be sure they are sealed to prevent heat loss.  Not only does this keep the temperature in your home more regulated, but it also reduces the wear and tear on your heating equipment.
  4. Clear snow from your roof and gutters before it accumulates to avoid damage caused by the weight of accumulated snow and ice.

Keep these winter weather tips in mind when you are battening down the hatches for the cold season.  Make sure your home is covered by a homeowner’s insurance policy that provides you with the protection your property needs in case unfortunate circumstances do occur.  At Schumacher Insurance Group, we can work with you to get the coverage you need for your home at a price that won’t leave you out on a limb!
