Winter Home MaintenanceIf you have a generator, check and make sure it’s working.

Keep extra batteries for lanterns and flashlights in case of power outages and blackouts.

Keep a radio (crank or battery-operated) in your home in case phone service goes out.

Brush off tree limbs after each big snow to protect people and property damage.

Avoid Ice Dams. In freezing conditions, ice dams can form at the edge of your roof and prevent melting snow from draining properly. The water can leak into your roof and cause damage to ceilings, insulation, and walls.

To prevent ice dams from forming, keep the entire roof at the same temperature. To do this, increase ventilation and add insulation. Make sure to seal off every possible air leak that might warm the underside of the roof.
