Winterizing your Boise Home
Keep your home in tip-top shape with these simple homeowner maintenance items:
:: Have your sprinklers blown out & shut off.
:: Disconnect hoses from hose bibs.
:: Check weather stripping around doors & windows. Replace
if needed. Caulk any gaps where openings meet siding &
around inside of windows where they meet wood or
:: Feel outlets and light switches on exterior walls. If they
are cool or even allowing air intrusion, install outlet and
switch insulators from Home Depot or Lowes ($2 for a 6 pack).
:: Check drainage around foundation, confirm that there is no
pooling and that ground slopes away from home.
:: Clean out gutters and make sure they are draining properly.
:: Inspect roof from the ground and look for any missing
shingles or loose vents. Hire a professional for repairs
