We've taken out the guesswork from "winterizing your home" projects. Here are our top picks for local companies to look after your estate this season.
A Hamptons estate requires a very different kind of care during the long winter season. For this unique set of challenges, we’ve pulled together a list of services that will keep your home in tip-top shape and your mind at ease.
There’s nothing quite like the first big frost of the season—and your plants think so, too. Throughout the winter months, Unlimited Earth Care recommends changing your potted plants to holly, cypress, ivy and others of their like, which better sustain the brisk temperatures.
If you migrate down south for the season, Groundworks will diligently keep your home in order. Specializing in lawn services, the crews trim, mow and cut. They’ll even prepare your lawn for any special occasions, such as a holiday or New Year’s Eve celebration.
If you are abandoning your estate until the temperature heats up, Hampton’s House Watching is also prepared to take over. Each home receives a winter checklist unique to your specific needs. This includes anything from running your sleek vintage cars sitting in the garage each week to keep them in fighting form, to checking for burst pipes and, most importantly in our opinion, getting rid of any unwanted guests before you return—ensuring no small-critter surprises. HHW’s services also include trips to your home to scrape snow piling up on your windows as well as snow-plowing the driveway.
Creosote, the black or brown residue of combustion that collects on the inner surfaces of a chimney flue liner, is highly flammable. Quality Air Care will come to inspect your chimney, properly clean and dispose of any residue, ensuring you can still enjoy a proper fireplace experience without fear.
