Did You Know?
- Missing or damaged shingles can cause water leakage. The section of your roof that gets the most exposure to the sun requires your closest attention. Make a thorough inspection and call a professional if repairs are needed.
- Most homes in Canada are heated by furnaces or other appliances that run on natural gas or oil, increasing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in the winter. To ensure safety, install certified carbon monoxide alarms (accredited by the Standards Council of Canada) in hallways and near sleeping areas.
