Spring is here! Are you ready for the cottage?

The first signs of spring are here and many Winnnipeggers are making plans for their first visit to the cottage.  The lake is a lifestyle and past time for many in Winnipeg.  During summer months cottage owners will often spend as much time as possible at the cottage and if retired for example, the entire summer months will be dedicated towards cottage life.  But what about your residential home?  Who is taking care of your home?  Asking a neighbour or friend to check your home every couple of days, (which is recommended by insurance companies), is a large “ask” in terms of time and commitment, and a significant responsibility.  Having an insured professional home checker will provide piece of mind while you’re away and release your friend or neighbour from the responsibility.  Winnipeg HomeCheck will water your outdoor and indoor plants,  arrange for pool or hot tub service,  thoroughly check your property indoors and out or take on any specific request while you are enjoying your cottage.
