Preparing for winter weather

Whether we like it or not, the winter season will soon be upon us. This means cold weather followed by possible home damage because of freezing temperatures. One of the most common causes of home damage during the winter season is frozen pipes. When the temperature get too cold water can back up in the pipe, expand, and then burst. Other causes of home damage during the winter season consist of hail damage, fallen trees, ice dams that form on roofs with poor insulation, backed-up gutters that force water under shingles as they melt, and fires from unsafe heating sources.

To ensure that your family and home are properly protected this winter season please see our enclosed list of precautionary steps you can take here.
