How to Weatherproof Your Home

4/4/2022 (Permalink)

For months like spring, summer, and winter, weathering your home is a good plan. With winter bringing snowstorms for the majority of states, and spring and summer having high probabilities of rain and thunderstorms, weatherproofing your home will be beneficial in the long run, and help to prevent any damage.  

Investigate your roof

The roof is one of the critical parts in protecting your home from the weather, and if your room is in poor shape, or if your shingles are damaged, this raises concerns for weather conditions. If shingles are cracked or damaged this can cause leaking or damage to your home, that could be avoided by investing in new shingles that do not break as easily, some have switched to rubber shingles due to them being less likely to break.

Check out your gutters

Are there leaves, debris, or nests in your gutters? This issue can be easily resolved by installing guards for your gutters. This will prevent debris, leaves, and nests from clogging your gutters, and will help water to flow properly away from your home and not in your gutters. 


Checking your windows to make sure that they are secure and not drafty is a huge thing to see if your windows are prepared for storms. Even if there are no drafts or cracks, investing in storm windows will help to minimize any stress if an unexpected storm were to occur.
