Winter Maintenance For Your Vacation Rental

How our maintenance team tackles HomeCare and seasonal maintenance for winter

Each year as we move into our winter season, our maintenance team is out in force to get your home winterized and prepared for your ski season guests. Here are some of the winter maintenance tasks we focus on to make your vacation rental ready.

Roofs & Ice Build-Ups

Roofs are designed to shed water; as the snow melts, water flows down to the soffit and freezes, creating icicles. Over time, these freeze/thaw cycles create ice dams which pools water above. If left to pool long enough, the water finds its way in-between the shingles through the rubber shield and plywood, finally into the home. If we see potential problem areas at your home and we will send photos, but if you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out so we can be proactive.

Shoveling

After snowfall, we’re ready to keep your walkways, steps and driveways shoveled or plowed for easy access so you don’t have to worry whether you have guest arrivals or are coming to town yourself.

Pipe Checks

Prior to the cooler temps, our team seeks proactive prevention of frozen pipes and are ready to handle repairs in the unlikely case they burst.

Furnace Filter Update

Heat is a must for your vacation rental every winter. We take measures to make sure your furnace has a clean filter in order to work more efficiently. A dirty filter with trapped lint, pollen, dust, etc., obstructs airflow and makes your furnace run longer to heat your home.

Fireplace Troubleshooting

We always take time to inspect each homes fireplace before the winter season season to make sure your guests have the luxury of cozying up on a snowy winter day. Whether you have a gas or wood-burning fireplace, we want to make sure it’s in tip-top shape.

These are just a few of the many protocols we take to ensure a positive experience each winter for you and your guests. For more information on property management for your vacation rental, get in touch with us today.
