Batten down the hatches, seal up the drafty windows, and cozy up your casa. It’s time to winterize.
Have you perfected a gutter cleaning technique? Figured out how to save mad cash by making your own chimney balloons? Maybe your pipe-wrapping skills are legendary in the tri-state area. Don’t keep those polished techniques and carefully crafted projects hidden from the world one second longer!
Show us how you prepare your home, tools, pet structures, vehicles, and garden for winter by entering the Winterize Challenge, for a chance to win a Makita cordless 7piece combo kit that includes a drill, driver, grinder, and saws.
Winter is coming. (Australia, South Africa, we see you down there. Enjoy sipping piña coladas in the sunshine while we protect ourselves from the grip of winter’s icy fingers.)
