Here are several tips to get your home in order and prepared for the winter season!

Check the gutters on your house.  Make sure they are cleaned and will drain water properly.

Remove hoses from all outdoor faucets and make sure they are drained.

Turn off the water supply to outdoor faucets if the water lines are not located in a heated space or if you do not have frost proof faucets.

If you have storm windows, now's a good time to get those up.  Storm windows serve as an additional barrier against the cold winter winds and can help keep your heating bills lower.
