Ahh, winter. Most of us just want to stay inside and hide until spring. Spring is when we think of working on our homes…spring cleaning, yard work, sprucing things up for that pretty time of year. However, the deep freeze of winter is an important time to be protecting our homes from potentially costly damage! We need to be paying special attention to preventing water and moisture from numerous sources from damaging our homes. Check out Marilyn Lewis’s article for MSN Real Estate, January home-maintenance checklist, for a heads up on avoiding bursting pipes and leaks in your home this winter. Ms. Lewis also provides some helpful advice on deterring little critters looking for a warm place to spend the winter and some insulation suggestions.
