Winter Weather Tips
Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and the national weather reporting agencies are predicting cold temps reaching into April, even early May possibly. Don't shoot the messenger!
With that said, two of the biggest problems our customers encounter are frozen pipes and ice dams. A frozen pipe can burst causing considerable damage to your property if not addressed. Ice dams cause a back-flow under the roof’s shingles and can affect your structure’s interior areas. Below are some tips on how to prevent this damage and prepare your home for the winter weather.
Quick Easy Steps to Avoid Burst Pipes & Ice Dams:
- Keep cabinet doors open during cold spells
- Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets
- Consider shutting off outdoor faucets
- Ensure gutters are clean and secure
- Inspect property for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential
