While Minnesotan homeowners stay at home to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, time can pass very slowly.

There is nothing like a cold, blustery day in January to remind you that your windows might need replacing.

Here in Minnesota, “winter” and “snow” are synonymous, as are “spring” and “mush”. This time of year as the snow is disappearing, there are things homeowners need to look for on their home to ensure there is no damage. During winter, you probably bundled up to make sure your fingers, toes, and noses were protected from the cold, wet snow.
