Snow damage

Car with snow Snow storm accumulation.

Winter storms bring significant snow accumulation in Berrien County.  Mother Nature brings it every season and we adjust to make it through the season.  Snow accumulation on your roof can cause water damage inside your home.  Snow builds up and then melts and refreezes causing an ice buildup.  The freeze and thawing backs up water behind the ice dam that can leak through your roof.  Then it soaks into the attic insulation, ceiling materials and fixtures, down walls and onto flooring.

Prevention:  Some areas of the roof can be cleaned off with a snow rake you can get at the hardware store.  This is very effective to reduce or eliminate the threat of ice damming.  

Water Damage Solution:  SERVPRO of Berrien County can help dry the materials and rebuild damaged areas.
