Are you ready for winter? Did you know that a year ago, it was -30 degrees here in the Edmonton area?

The above-average temperatures can keep us from preparing our homes for the winter. Over the coming days, we will share some tips/reminders of maintenance items to remember as we head into the colder months.

Winterizing your exterior hose bib

Remember to remind your property managers or current residents if you are a real estate investor.

– You will want to drain and disconnect all exterior hoses

– Drain the hose bib if it is not frost-free.

All frost-free hose bibs should slope to the exterior; if your home or rental property does not have frost-free hose bibs, consider installing one.
