Subfreezing Temperatures Ahead

Published on January 25th, 2015

As an arctic blast moves through the area over the next few days, residents of Nashville and surrounding areas should prepare for the cold ahead. One of the most important aspects of preparing for the cold in Nashville is ensuring your roof and home is ready for the temperature change ahead.

The following are all tips for home preparation for cold weather:

  • Check the Roof: Begin your cold weather preparation with a roof inspection. You can check your roof for leaks or areas you will lose warm interior air. Scheduling a professional roof inspection with our team is ideal because our roofing experts will be able to find any weak points in your roofing system, including ones that are hard to find. Loose or damaged shingles can lead to large energy loss in your home.
  • Look over the insulation: Proper insulation will keep you and your family much warmer during the cold months ahead. If you have an attic, ensure it is well insulated since this is often a major point of energy loss.
  • Wrap your pipes: If you have any exposed piping that is not properly insulated, wrap the pipes before the freeze hits. Outdoor spigots can be covered with freeze protectors for as little as $2 per cover.
  • Decrease window drafts: If you have any drafty windows in the home consider a simple fix with caulk or weather sealants. This quick fix can ensure your home stays warmer in the days ahead.

If you need any help preparing your roof and home for the cold ahead in Nashville, give us a call. Enjoy the New Year and stay warm!
