Canadian winters can be long and rough, combining the problems of freezing temperatures, heavy snowfall, ice and strong winds. If you want to protect your home from the harshness of Canadian winter, here are some home improvements that you should consider.
Old windows are a major culprit for cold air getting indoors — if you try to ignore this by turning up the heat, they will also make your hydro bills rise.
