Ready for Winter?
Here in Los Angeles, the seasons aren’t the same as the rest of the country. There’s no snowfall, and while trees can lose their leaves in late fall, it’s not a drastic change. However, it is still a change your house has to get used to.
That’s why you need to prepare your home for winter before the weather finally starts to turn colder. You’ll need to work on both the inside and outside of your home. But first, are such preparations really necessary?

Working Now Saves You Later On
Since the seasons don’t change much here in southern California, you can easily forget about regular home maintenance. All the days can blur together. As Solidbuildersonline.com explains, that’s a very bad thing.
See, doing some work now helps you in the long run in two ways:
- A little time spent now on maintenance means you won’t have to spend hours or even days making repairs.
- Maintenance almost always costs much less than repairing or replacing when there’s a problem.
In addition, getting your home ready for winter helps protect its value. If your house looks worn, you could lose 10% of its value or more! And with the high prices of homes in this area, that can be a lot of money lost.
