Preparing For Winter Weather

Even though we have seen up and down temperatures in Oklahoma, the leaves surely have fallen and winter is on its way. Cold northern winds are bringing in cold fronts in the coming weeks and that means it is time to start preparing for winter weather. Follow some of these tips from Disaster Restoration Services, THE experts in storm damage restoration in Oklahoma.

Winterize The Inside

Make sure your home is properly insulated. Places like crawl spaces, walls, and attics should be properly insulated to keep the warm air in and cold weather out. Check caulking around all of your doors and windows where cold wind might get in. These leaks can not only cause damage, but make your utility bills shoot through the roof.

What To Do Outside

Outside of your home, make sure your roof is clear and your gutters as well. As snow and ice build up, the added weight can cause damage to your homes roof and structural integrity. You will want water to have a way to flow off of your roof and away from your home.
Put insulated covers over outdoor water faucets and hose connections to prevent pipes from freezing and breaking. This will prevent you from having flooding issues inside your home later when temperatures are below freezing.

Perform Regular Maintenance

Check your AC and furnace units to make sure they are in good operating condition. Change filters and keep everything in good working order so that it doesn’t fail you when you need it most.
