Our experience is that a loss can sometimes be prevented.  See below for some preventative practices. 


Outside Your Home

  • Clean eaves troughs and downspouts to ensure proper drainage
  • Repair damage on the outside of your home, including cracks or storm damage
  • Caulk window trim and door frames
  • Check your roof and flashing for repairs
  • Install weather stripping on exterior doors and windows
  • Winterize your pool or hot tub
  • In the Fall, turn off the water supply to outdoor taps after the taps have been left open to drain completely.   Leave the taps in the open position until Spring. 
  • Always clear snow away from the foundation of your house

Inside Your Home

  • Check heat-duct and water-pipe insulation
  • Inspect any washing machine and dishwasher hoses for cracks or leads, and clean the filters
  • Learn location of and how to use the water shut-off valve
  • Have the furnace and air conditioner professionally serviced annually
  • Have any chimneys cleaned annually and repaired as needed
