What to Watch Out For
Extreme cold weather can cause pipes to freeze and burst, due to water expansion. If burst, the resulting water damage can be extensive.
Outdoor pipes and pipes in unheated areas of the home can freeze if they are not properly insulated or if temperatures are severely cold.
Most Common Areas for Frozen Pipes
Outdoor hose bibs
Swimming pool supply lines
Water sprinkler lines
Pipes in unheated or partially heated areas are also at risk of freezing, including:
- Crawl Spaces
An ice dam is formed when snow melts unevenly on a roof and refreezes into a dam at the edge of the roof.
This standing water can back up under shingles, leak into a home, and cause significant water damage to ceilings, walls, and other areas. Ice dams can also tear off gutters and loosen shingles.
Snow and ice can cause significant damage to your gutters and roof. The additional weight of snow and ice can even cause a roof to collapse. When there’s a cold snap, water can get into cracks and small spaces and expand when it freezes, causing larger cracks and more damage. The repetition of freezing and thawing cycles can cause small cracks to get larger.
Regardless of the type of storm, SERVPRO of Freeport, Roosevelt can handle any size disaster, and can respond quickly with additional resources to take care of your damage right away.7
