Winter is one of the biggest threats to your home and business. Protect your building from snow and ice damage.
Heavy snow accumulation can take a toll even as it melts. Here are a few things to consider:
- Keep snow removed from outside walls, windows and stairwells. Otherwise melting snow can result in moisture damage that can be costly.
- A warm attic melts snow on the roof, causing water to run down and refreeze at the roof's edge, where it's much cooler. So check your attics insulation to be sure the attic stays cold in the winter. This will protect against water damage on your roof.
- Blowing snow will typically accumulate on the leeward side of many roofs. Be sure to remove it to avoid damage to your roof. If you are unsure consult a roofing contractor.
Before damage occurs be sure that your home is protected adequately with home owners insurance. Why not call your insurance agent for a review before problems occur.
