Depending on where you live, you’re probably seeing the signs of fall all around you.
And with fall comes time spent with family – and friends – as the year draws to a close and the dark and cooler winter months (for most of us) lie ahead.
This is also the start of the “holiday” season; a fact that’s evidenced by the bountiful decor that began to line store shelves before the weather even started showing signs of change!
While you may not notice little leaks in the summertime — or perhaps they simply don’t bother you as much — the discomfort that comes with cold rooms is enough to cause you to make sure everything is sealed tight by the change of seasons. Not only do energy leaks in your home cause a chill, but they also make your energy bills skyrocket, which is something everyone wants to avoid.
In order to keep the bills low and your home toasty warm this winter, you have to avoid those leaks as much as possible.
You dream of a beautiful home with luxurious furniture. The only problem is, your budget doesn’t fit that dream.
But did you know that with just a few adjustments, you can turn ordinary furniture – such as that found at IKEA – and make it extraordinary?
If you have ever shopped at IKEA you were probably struck by their beautiful, and even better, affordable home decor items.
And while their furniture is perfectly fine to use as it comes out of the box, you can get the look you want by making just a few modifications to make each piece uniquely yours.
To prevent leaks and roof collapses during the winter, you must take measures to avoid ice dams. Ice dams refer to barriers of ice that form at the edge of a roof and prevent water from flowing off. As a result, the water from rain or melted snow will pool in the center of the roof and potentially seep through or cause the roof to collapse under the pressure. This may sound scary, but there’s no need to worry. Simply follow this guide on how to prevent ice dams during the winter, and your roof will stay safe and sound throughout the colder months of the year.
