November 02, 2011 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, Mich. – As the seasons continue to change and cooler weather continues to set in, homeowners need to begin thinking about ways to prepare their home for the harsh conditions that lie ahead in the coming months. Several steps can be taken to winterize households so that homeowners aren’t paying.
“A proper painting job can greatly help homeowners protect their property against the brutal winter weather. But there are other things homeowners can do to assure their property is safe and protected this Winter season,” said Chris Ring, Vice President of Operations and Training for ProTect Painters. “While the worst weather may be a few months away, people should get a jump on their painting projects now and be prepared in advance.”
“Just doing a little prep work can save homeowners a major headache come Spring. Proper preparation is key when getting ready for the Winter,” added Ring.
