We may not get feet and feet of snow like other parts of the country but we are no stranger to ice storms and freezing temperatures. Though our storms may not be as intense or long-lasting as blizzards they can still cause a lot of damage. 

When we get freezing temperatures for a few sustained days, it can cause pipes to freeze and expand causing damage. Snow and ice can cause additional damage when it thaws as well. Look out for these potential causes of damage when snow and ice thaw and protect your property by following these tips. 

  • Ensure drains take water away from the property and correctly drain
  • Check the grading around your home to ensure the water is directed away from your property
  • If you have a sump pump, make sure that it is working correctly especially if you are in an area that is prone to flooding.

Water damages can happen throughout your home from various causes, like the ice maker line to your refrigerator in your kitchen, the washing machine in the upstairs laundry room, or a pipe break in the crawlspace. Bathroom water damages are a common cause of water damage in the home.
