Winter Is Here! Tips for Surviving La Niña

Frosty the SnowmanBrrrrrrrr!!!!  Well now that winter is officially upon us, and tad bit early at that, it is a good time to make sure your property is prepared for La Nina.  We have put together a short list of reminders that should help you get things ready for the colder months to come.

  • Turn off exterior water and drain the pipes to reduce the chance of a burst
  • Take precautions to make sure fountains do not freeze
  • Check weather stripping on doors and windows and make sure they are forming a tight seal
  • Have a shovel ready if snow decides to show up
  • Have your furnace and air ducts cleaned if they need it
  • Be prepared to not leave the house for several days in the event of storm
  • Block off the air vents in your basement if you have them.  This will keep your house warmer.
  • Have de-icer ready

Remember, if the wind should decide to tip over your fence you can always call Pacific Fence for a free estimate for the repair!  This is also a great time to have the old fence rebuilt.  Winter is the off season and you can have a fence built much quicker during the off season.  Call today to setup and estimate!
