Completing annual maintenance on the interior and exterior of your home in the fall can help prevent costly repairs that may or may not be covered by your homeowners’ insurance policy.
The snow, ice, freezing temperatures, and harsh winds of Midwest winters present many hazards to your home. While you can’t avoid these perils completely, you can do several things to minimize your risk.
Clean out your gutters and downspouts. Falling leaves can quickly clog gutters and inhibit proper drainage. This can result in ice dams, leaks, foundation damage, and basement flooding.
Ensure windows and doorframes are properly sealed. Openings allow moisture to enter the home and potentially result in mold, cracks, or other damage.
