The winter months: how to prepare and protect your home

06.12.22

The winter months can bring adverse weather conditions such as low temperatures and extreme wind and rain.

With this weather comes more risk to your home. From frozen pipes to falling debris, the chance of damage to your property is higher, but there are measures you can take to lower the risk of serious damage. By preparing your home you can save yourself potential stress and a financial hit in the long run.

There are many ways to protect your home against the elements, but we have put together a few tips you may not have considered:

  • Regularly inspect any loft space, looking for gaps in the roof. You may be able to see signs of water or damp getting in. If you find any sign of a leak anywhere on your property, act quickly to save a bigger issue building over time.
  • Check the insulation of your interior water pipes and water tank. Outside pipes and any pipes or water tanks in your loft will also benefit from insulation.
  • Keep an eye on any nearby trees. Falling debris can cause many issues, so steps should be taken to reduce the likelihood of damage or injury. Where you can, clear dead branches to avoid them falling and causing damage.
  • In the event of heavy snow, use a roof rake to clear snow from the roof and prevent ice dams from forming.
