Signs of Winter Storm Damage

1/3/2019 (Permalink)

With winter approaching, there’s often more to worry about than shoveling snow.  Winter storms and temperatures can cause extensive damage to your home, but SERVPRO of Richland County is ready to help if you experience a winter disaster from common issues including the following.

Frozen Pipes

Brisk temperatures can cause pipes to freeze and break, which can lead to flooding in your home.

Ice Dams

When snow melts unevenly and freezes at the edge of your roof, an ice dam is created which prevents melted snow from draining off of the roof.  The water can then leak under the shingles and into the home and cause significant water damage.

Roof Damage

Snow and ice can damage your roof and even cause the roof to collapse if enough weight has accumulated.  Water can get into cracks and expand when it freezes, causing larger cracks.

Winter can be an extremely dangerous time for your home. Be sure to check the pipes and roof of your property for signs of potential water damage and warning signs.  If you experience a storm disaster, SERVPRO of Richland County.
