6 Tips To Get Your Home Spring Ready

Spring is a favorite season for most of us in New England. We are ready to plant, work in the yard and on the house, and we're ready to spend as much time outdoors as possible. In addition to enjoying warm temperatures and longer days however, spring brings rain, storms, and other hazards that could cause damage to your home. Follow this checklist from Central Insurance Companies to ensure that your home is prepared for spring weather.

  1. Check your roof for damaged or missing shingles. If damaged, call in a roofing professional before the next big storm.
  2. Trim damaged trees to prevent them from damaging your property or your neighbor's property. Winter winds, snow, and ice cause tree damage that may not be visible until a spring storm hits.
  3. Check window seals to prevent leaks from driving rain.Nor'easters are famous for driving rain and so are other storms. Check the interior of windows to detect possible winter damage. 
  4. Clean the gutters or call in a gutter cleaning professional. Gutters clogged with pine needles and leaves can block drainage and cause water damage to your home. 
  5. Change the filter on your air conditioner and/or have a professional inspect your system. Annual checkups will help to prevent issues when you need air conditioning most.
  6. Do a homeowners policy review with us to ensure you have the coverages you need.
