Winters in Saskatchewan can be harsh. It may be stating the obvious, but even
with a relatively mild winter, the cold, snow, and ice can cause plenty of
changes to the exterior of your home. This is what you need to help you make
your way into Summer:
 Inspect and clean your eavestrough: When it comes to your gutters, clean is best. Even if

our outside taps to become dry and brittle causing them to leak. The seals and gaskets are

Saskatoon April 3, 2018.
