Cold Weather! Call Us. We are here to help – (770) 622-9411.

Are you prepared for the coming cold weather? Cold weather can have a huge impact on your home or business if you are not ready for it. From heavy rain and freezing temperatures to damaging winds, sleet, or snow, all can cause serious and costly property damage.

While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to be prepared to help prevent costly damages due to weather.

Consider taking the following precautions to protect your home or business.

- Check your property for downed tree limbs and branches. Wind, heavy rain, ice, and snow can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause injuries.

- Roofs, water pipes, and gutters should all be inspected. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the fall.

- Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.

- Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas.

- Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open, allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, consider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure it drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
