Winter is not for yard work, it’s for hibernation, buttery holiday treats, and long Netflix binges. But keep these to-do’s in mind when it comes to home maintenance in the winter season and it will pay-off all year long.

Outdoors:

  1. Bring out the snow blower and make sure it’s in good working order, with gas and oil
  2. Stock up on supplies before the winter storms. Salt, shovels, and de-icers sell out quick during an impeding storm
  3. Check for ice dams—ice that accumulates along the eaves of your roof and can cause damage to shingles, gutters and siding. Removing them with a roof rake will keep you from potentially harming your roof

Indoors:

  1. Check and change filters in your heating systems
  2. Bring in firewood as needed, but store it outside long-term to reduce the risk of bugs
  3. Check your boiler levels
  4. If you have a generator, make sure it’s in good running order and has fuel
  5. Prepare in advance. Before the storms hit is the time to make sure you have supplies for a big storm. Water, supplies, food, and first aid should all be arranged before the big rush
