Simple Tips to Winterize (and Live) By: How to Maximize Last-Minute Preparations
When you find yourself in a time crunch, you usually have fewer options. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to prepare your shed for winter this season! At this point, your top priority should include the safety of your structure and making sure its most important areas are free of preliminary damage which will worsen with dampness and exposure to the cold.
This includes visually looking over your roof for signs of cracks or missing shingles, and clearing out gutters and downspouts to prevent blockage which can freeze and permanently damage your shed. All windows and doors should be secured, and easy-to-purchase winterizing kits for doors and windows are a great way to further insulate your structure against the freezing elements.
You can also use weather stripping packages as extra protection on the bottom of doors, which will take you less than thirty minutes at best. Being sure that the seals are tight and air or leak proof is a must, as this can also contribute to problems with your flooring or interior finishes.
If you have some extra time, it is always a great choice to organize your shed after adding the finishing cleaning polishes. This way you will be ready for spring when the weather clears, with everything in its place and easy to find.
