Getting your home ready for winter seems to be something that you should have perfected by now. But every winter season, you get to learn something new that you have to add to your to-do list for the next wintertime.
Before the temperature drops, prep your home for winter by dealing with all the drafts. Check for it on every door and window. Repair any cracks that can let the cold air in.
Turning off outside water sources like outdoor faucets or sprinkler systems will prevent the pipes from bursting. This will save you from a hefty repair and replacement bill.
To keep everything in one place, it helps to have a mudroom set up near the entrance, so people won’t be tracking in snow and dirt all the way inside the house.
