Winter Chores: bah humbug it's time for more home maintenance

Winter Chores: bah humbug it's time for more home maintenance

If there is a little nip in the air then winter is likely just around the corner! Niagara’s winters usually reflect the true essence of what winter really means… snow, ice and frigid temperatures (that’s if the year brings a true Canadian winter).  

Since your home is likely one of your biggest investments, it stands to reason that protecting it is one of your highest priorities. Those ‘Happy Holiday’ signs popping up in store windows should also serve as a reminder that there are some home maintenance chores to do that may help you protect your home and family. 

We’ve put together a list of basic home maintenance tips to consider. This is simply a starter list… Take a good look around your home’s interior and exterior on a regular basis and address the requirements for your home’s upkeep. If you see something that’s going to require maintenance or does require maintenance, don’t put it off. Preventative home maintenance can save you a lot of money compared to replacement due to damage… but only if it’s done properly. If you are unsure how to do a task safely and effectively or are unable to do it yourself, do not hesitate to hire a professional to do it for you.  

Wishing you a safe and happy winter from everyone at Vanderzalm Construction Inc. If you are planning a custom renovation or addition, or considering building a new Niagara custom home, call us at (905)562-4463 or (905)684-5823.
