Enjoy the remainder of winter’s chilly weather in a cozy new home at Flagstaff Meadows by Capstone Homes. Located in Bellemont, Arizona, this development of new single-family homes offers quick access to all of your everyday conveniences. Here, you can find spacious floor plans with up to four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage perfect for protecting your vehicles during the colder months. The Flagstaff Meadows community also provides Zero Energy Ready Homes, which offer elevated energy efficiency and features like Low-E vinyl windows, a tankless gas water heater, and programmable thermostats that save big on monthly energy costs. 


With the crisp winter weather creeping in over the past few months, the need to winterize and weatherproof your new home is a must. Securing the outside of your home this time of year helps keep your new investment in tip-top shape. Here is a shortlist of winter home maintenance tips to prepare you for the season ahead at Flagstaff Meadows.


Exterior Faucets


It is best to winterize your exterior faucets to avoid expensive water damage and keep your pipes from freezing, expanding, and breaking. To do so, you can shut off the valve to your exterior faucets and drain the excess water in the line. Turn the water off at the shutoff valve. Additionally, detach and relocate your external hoses indoors to extend their life.




Survey the exterior of your home and identify any tree limbs close to your home or driveway. They are prone to detaching during wind and under the weight of snow and ice. Save your home and vehicle’s potential damage by removing them before they become a hazard to you or anyone else.


Gutter Cleaning


Clogged gutters can wreak havoc on your home. Blocked drains can cause water damage to your roof, detach due to weight, leak into your home, and destroy landscaping. Be sure to clean your gutters, remove all debris, and ensure proper downspout drainage. 


Lawn & Patio Furniture


Lawn and Patio furniture is designed to be kept outdoors but shouldn’t be subjected to harsh winter elements. Remember to bring the furniture indoors that should not remain outside. Items made with cloth, including chair cushions, pillows, umbrellas, should be stored indoors as the elements can shorten their usage and damage the material.


Garden and Plants


Now is the perfect time to make a cold frame, dig and box in raised flower beds, as well as make general repairs. Potted plants create natural patio décor; however, many of them cannot survive the cold weather. To keep your plants around another year, make sure to bring them inside but check for plant pests first!


Now that you’ve checked all of the boxes on your winterizing checklist, you can enjoy the attractive features and amenities your new residence has to offer. The home designs at Flagstaff Meadows feature bathrooms with chrome plumbing fixtures, green approved cabinets, large frameless mirrors, and granite countertops. Enjoy home-cooked meals in the highly desirable kitchens that include a Whirlpool appliance package with black or white gas range, hood, dishwasher, recess can lighting, and a stainless steel 60/40 under-mount sink with a chrome faucet.


Flagstaff Meadows is surrounded by outstanding Flagstaff USD schools, dining, shopping, employment, and entertainment, as well as onsite community amenities like a playground for your little ones to enjoy, a park, and miles of walking trails perfect for starting your morning right or an evening stroll. The neighborhood schools include Manuel Demiguel Elementary School, Mt. Elden Middle School, and Flagstaff High School. You can also spend time hiking at the Kendrick Park Nature Trail and learn more about the area at the Museum of Northern Arizona. Don’t forget to grab a quick bite to eat at local restaurants such as Sakura Sushi Bar & Teppanyaki, Woodlands Restaurant, and Oregano’s Pizza Bistro.
