Now is the time to prepare your Sterling roof and other areas of the home for the cold winter ahead. Follow these basic winter weatherization tips to keep your home as cozy as possible and conserve money!

• Roof. Inspect your roof for loose or worn shingles and any areas that could allow water to seep through. Also be sure to inspect flashings around projections such as skylights, chimneys and vent pipes for any signs of damage. • Exterior, windows & doors. Inspect the exterior of your house for cracks in walls, and gaps around pipes or vents. If you find areas where cold air can get in, seal them properly. Use weather-stripping and caulk to seal around doors and windows. • Storm doors & windows. Consider installing storm doors and storm windows for protection and an additional layer of insulation. Existing storm doors and windows should be inspected, repaired and painted if necessary. • Attic insulation. Add extra insulation to your attic to prevent warm interior air from rising to your roof deck and causing ice dams.

Make sure gutters are clean and clear of all debris so rainwater and snowmelt can flow easily away from your home.
