How to Guard Against 9 Winter Home Hazards

Take care of these maintenance issues before they cause damage or endanger your family and friends.

Whether you expect to cross-country ski to work in the first few months of the year or you live in a milder climate, recent years have shown that winter storms can happen almost anywhere, and the colder months can cause many problems at home.

Heading into winter, be sure your home has been appropriately maintained to function throughout the season – from your heating system to properly weather-stripped windows and doors. And keep a keen eye out for problems such as a damaged roof, slippery porch or potential fire hazard.

As you survey your house for potential issues, take precautions to avoid injury. When in doubt, call a professional to assess your home.
