Here is Your Winter checklist for Your Home

Your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. That’s why we at DIY Depot have created this checklist of what you should check for routine around your home.

  1. Check your roof

Check your roof for leaks. Lookout for damaged, loose or missing tiles. If your roof is flat, check for signs of blistering or bubbles.

  1. Clear the gutters

It is a must in winter to clean out gutters, drainpipes and outdoor drains. Also cut back any tree branches that could cause damage to the roof or gutters in a storm.

  1. Repaint your walls

Paint not only makes your home look good, but it also serves as a protective layer against the elements. So put on those overalls and get to maintain blistered or bubbled, peeled or cracked paint.

  1. Clean the chimney

Before you use your fireplace during winter nights,  get sooty and clean out the chimney for a more efficient, and economical, flow of air that will prevent you from drowning in smoke.

  1. Seal the gaps

Replace broken or cracked windowpanes and apply new putty where needed in order to seal your home and keep the heat in and energy costs low.
