Cold weather can take a toll on your home! Use these steps to get your house back in shape!

Clean the walkway

Pressure-wash the walkway, then replace damaged pavers or bricks, or just flip them over. If any pavers are sticking up too high, raise them, remove a little dirt, and drop them back in place. On concrete walkways fill in cracks with a masonry crack filler that matches the color of your concrete.

Probe the weather stripping around the door with a screwdriver and caulk any post-winter gaps before tightening hinges that may have come loose due to shifts in temperature.

Happy National Cut Your Energy Costs Day!

Here are a few simple things you can do to save $$$ on your utility bills next month!

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 40% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration from the outdoors. Air seeps in through ceilings, walls, and also from areas exposed to external elements like windows and doors.

Another simple solution would be to add door draft stoppers in front of each of your doors.

Changing your furnace filter once a month during the winter is the best thing you can do to ensure your furnace operates properly. A dirty filter makes your furnaces work harder,…
