Ice Dams: Keeping Winter Woes at Bay
Ice dams occur when snow melts on the warmer areas of the roof and refreezes at the colder eaves, creating a barrier that traps water. This trapped water can lead to leaks and structural damage. Adequate flashing is key to preventing ice dams. By bridging the gap between your chimney and roof with a metal flashing, you will be providing your home with crucial insulation that will help prevent ice dams from forming.
Siding: The Gift Wrap Of Your Home
We won’t let you forget about your siding. Damaged or worn siding can compromise your home’s insulation and allow moisture to seep in. Regular inspections and timely repairs help maintain the integrity of your home’s exterior, ensuring it stands up to winter weather and adds to the festive curb appeal.
