Winter Can Bring Storm Damage To Your Property

11/23/2020 (Permalink)

Winter in New England is almost here, which means folks in Foxborough, MA are eagerly awaiting the first big snow storm. While most people assume the only disruptions blizzards can bring are travel difficulties and requiring quality time with the snowblower, they can actually have a significant affect on your property. Damage to your home caused by blizzards can be severe and difficult to repair. Winter storms and blizzards in the Commonwealth can bring about many hazards we need to prepare for.


Snow is, of course, typically the primary component to any winter storm. During blizzards, it can accumulate quickly on roofs and other structures associated with your commercial or residential property. If left unattended, this additional weight could compromise the structural integrity of your roof. If there are any trees near your property, snow accumulation can potentially result in bringing the trees down on top of your property. In either case, the damage can be significant; the situation is also exacerbated by the colder temperatures during the winter months.


Aside from the obvious slipping hazards ice creates, it can also be extremely problematic for your property. Melting caused by the natural insulating properties of snow can result in ice dams, which can lead to significant moisture intrusion into your property. If left undetected or untreated, this moisture intrusion result in a significant mold infestation.


Blizzards often bring high winds along to the party, which can easily lead to damage to your property. Aside from the potential for superficial damage, object becoming airborne are projectiles that could easily break windows, or damage siding or shingles; in any case, the end result is intrusion of the outside elements, which can lead to significant problems down the road.
