Winer Maintenance/Storm Prep for Old House
My elderly parents live in a big old house.
Is there anything in particular that should be done to prepare it for winter snowstorms?
It's not a newly renovated house or anything...I'm just wondering if there may be minor upkeep/maintenance issues that might be difficult for my parents to keep up with.
I'm not handy and not a home owner, so these issues aren't necessarily obvious to me.
To give an example of the sort of thing I mean, I noticed my parents missed a few storm windows when they closed them for the winter, and one storm window was cracked.
I'd ask my parents, but I find they don't always have the best sense of what I can and can't do on a day off I spend down there.
