Protect your home for winter

Winter can be harsh on your home, so now is the time to get essential DIY done and save having to claim on your home insurance.

Now is a good time to check that your insurance will cover you for any damage that winter could do to your home. Snow, ice and water damage can all be problematic.

Clear your guttering and make sure there are no blockages, check you have no cracks in your windows as freezing conditions could soon turn that into a broken window.

Make sure you have no loose roof tiles as high winds or a heavy fall of snow could cause a lot of damage. If you are in a flood risk area make sure you have your flood defences ready and that you are on a flood risk alert. Taking out Flood cover is also advisable especially if your area is prone to it.

If you are going away over Christmas then you should keep your heating on low to help prevent your pipes from freezing. Make sure your home insurance covers your for burst pipes especially if you are leaving your home unoccupied.
