What type of insurance coverage do you need?

As we put away our winter coats and snow boots and trade them in for longer days of sunlight and warm weather, it is important to have a checklist of tasks for your home. The winter weather can be harsh on our homes and bodies so taking the proper steps to take care of home maintenance and our health is important. 


1. Have your roof shingles inspected

Winter's strong winds and low temperatures can damage roof shingles. Replace any cracked or loose shingles. Vents and chimneys should also be inspected and repaired by a professional.

2. Inspect & clean your gutters

Look out for loose or damaged gutters. Leaks can lead to major flooding in your basement.

3. Change your batteries

If you forgot to check the batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on Daylight Savings, do this right away.

4. Inspect windows & doors

The seals on windows and doors can also be damaged by winter weather. Check the caulking for decay and recaulk as needed. This will help to improve insulation and prevent future water damage.

5. Clean your refrigerator coils & dryer vents

Making this a regularly-scheduled task will help to improve the efficiency of your appliances and prevent future electrical hazards.

6. Spring Cleaning

To help prevent spring allergies from taking over your home, take a few days for spring cleaning. Focus on areas that are prone to dust, mold,and pollen. One way to help prevent excess dust, is by de-cluttering. Have your Spring allergy medications on hand too!
