3. Inspect your roof and gutters
Do-it-yourself: Before temperatures dip below freezing, clean your gutters and downspouts of any leaves and debris clogs-clogs mean melting ice will seep into roof shingles. If you have an operational fireplace, make sure its damper is still working and keep it closed when not in use.
Big fix: Think of insulation like the toque your roof needs to wear in winter-up to 25 per cent of a home’s heat can be lost through the roof if it’s not properly insulated.
