Salem, Oregon had quite the thunder storm last night! Were you prepared?
- Did your gutters overflow?
- Were undiscovered roof leaks revealed?
- Are your windows properly sealed?
- Does the weather stripping on your doors need to be replaced?
Those are just a few of the items that could need some attention before the harsh winter weather sets in. There’s nothing like a good ol’ thunderstorm! While Salem doesn’t have them on a regular basis, they do come with a fury and can cause damage if you aren’t prepared.
A Salem autumn can be a beautiful thing. There are still lots of bright, clear days to enjoy and time to get your winterizing check list complete. If you need some assistance, 3Rs Construction is available to help you complete your tasks.
