Protect Your Home Now Before Winter Weather Starts

It’s difficult to tell exactly what winter is going to bring beforehand, and that’s why it’s always a great idea to make sure you’re ready! In addition to meeting with your local agent to review your policy for completeness, there are a few steps you can take around the house to get prepared.

  • Trim back any branches near to your home or garage – high winds, ice, and heavy snow increase the chance of branches breaking and causing damage. Make sure that your trees are all properly trimmed before the cold weather starts.
  • Have your roof and gutters inspected. Remove loose shingles, clear out any clogs, and make sure gutters are secured.
  • Give your furnace a once-over, clear chimney of any debris, and make sure ventilation systems are ready to go.
  • Drain sprinkler systems and shut them down for the season to prevent frozen pipes and damage to the overall sprinkler system.

Let’s make sure that your home insurance has the protection you need before the winter weather starts! If you are in the greater Shelton, CT area, call or stop by Goodman Insurance Inc. today and find out how a comprehensive homeowner’s policy can protect your family home.
