Now that we are in the dead of winter, there are still opportunities to do maintenance on your Cape Cod Home. This is a great time of year to identify leaks, drafts, or other issues that arise with the cold weather. Some of the biggest potential risks at this time of year are leaks from ice dams, or frozen and broken pipes. Take some time to walk through your attic and basement spaces and seek out potential drafts and seal them with foam. Even a small amount of preventative maintenance at this time of year can save you from a very expensive repair!
If you are heading south for the winter, and leaving your Cape Cod Home unattended, this is a good time to confirm all of your contact information with your homewatch or alarm service company. Another inexpensive option is to have either a freeze alarm or water sensor installed to quickly identify a potential freeze or leak as soon as possible.
