Although New Englanders are winter warriors who are no strangers to snowy and icy conditions, everyone wants to avoid the high costs associated with home repairs.

Although Maine residents can rest assured that their home insurance policy will provide protection in the event of severe winter damage, the team at W.J. Wheeler encourages its clients to take the time now to prepare for the colder months.
Here’s what to do both inside and outside:
- Individuals with irrigation systems should ensure that they blow out these pipes before the first frost since these can freeze just like indoor water pipes can.
- Some people forget how important it is to clean their gutters when the leaves begin to fall. Many homeowners were left with ice damage around their gutters last year, which resulted in preventable Maine homeowners insurance claims.
- Fall is the time to tune up furnaces and clean chimneys since these appliances will be in high demand once the temperatures drop. Doing so can prolong the life of a heating system and ensure that residents are not left out in the cold when their furnace breaks down during a blizzard.
Although New Englanders are winter warriors who are no strangers to snowy and icy conditions, everyone wants to avoid the high costs associated with home repairs. While homeowners insurance in Maine can save residents from the financial implications of winter damage, it’s best to avoid these situations altogether by taking the time this fall to prepare for the winter weather.
