Preparing your home for the summer season

The weather is heating up, and it’s time to start thinking about preparing your home for summer. Summer involves a lot more time outside and entertaining. It involves lots of sunshine and the need to stay cool and protected. Owning a home involves lots of upkeep and the summer is no exception. At Pizano Insurance in Wayzata, MN we are here to lower your stress level with one-stop insurance shopping. As an independent agency, we provide our customers with access to multiple carriers which allows them more choices. 

Service your AC

When the temperature rises, it’s time to turn on the air conditioning. If you have a central ac unit, it’s time to get your yearly check-up. Nothing is worse than having your system stop working in the steamy heat. Yearly maintenance can keep your system operating at peak performance and extend the life of your unit. 


If you have trees on your property winter can be tough on them. Look for damage, if you find some it is time to get an Arborist in to check the health of your trees. You may need some limbs trimmed or removed. Falling branches pose a safety hazard to you, your guest, and your property.

Make sure gutters are clear

Summer can bring heavy rain, and it is important that your gutters and downspouts are running freely. Check to make sure that the water is being directed away from your home to avoid foundation issues. 

Service your lawn moving equipment 

If you maintain your own lawn, preparing for summer means getting out the mower and the weed whacker and making sure they are working well and that you have enough line for the whacked. 

Summer is a time to relax and enjoy the outdoors, if you need to discuss your home insurance give us a call at us at Pizano Insurance in Wayzata, MN. 

Auto insurance additions you may want to consider

Auto insurance is not just one type of coverage, it is several types of coverage. Some of them are mandated by the state and others by lenders. Some are additions that may be added to your policy if they can be of benefit. At Pizano Insurance in Wayzata, MN, we are an independent agency that provides our customers with the benefit of our years of experience. We offer many choices of carriers which allows us to get the best possible rates. 

Gap coverage– Gap coverage will pay the difference between the depreciated value of your vehicle and the amount you owe on your auto loan. Vehicles depreciate very quickly and if your accident or theft happens within a few months of purchase you could be way underwater. 

Roadside assistance– Many people have roadside assistance coverage through companies like AAA. These cost quite a lot more than a similar overage that may be available through your insurance carrier. It includes towing as well as other services such as tire changing and jumping your battery if your car won’t start. 

Car rental insurance– If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you will need to have something to drive in the interim. With car rental insurance you will be able to rent a vehicle while your vehicle is in repair or until it is determined to be a complete loss. 

Full glass replacement-Glass coverage may be included with your comprehensive coverage but if it is not, it is worth having. No one wants to have to drive around with a damaged windshield or broken window. This coverage is provided without a deductible and the repair people can even come to you at home or at your job.
