Getting Your Home Winter Ready If you’re a George R. R. Martin fan, you know that winter is coming. And an Ontario winter means temperatures dropping below zero, and a whole lot of icy, snowy weather. There are many important things to consider as they relate to our Home Insurance. Now that we’ve covered getting your car ready for winter, it’s time to think about prepping your home for the season. Making sure your home is prepared before the bad weather hits, might save you from needing to make a claim later.
