Restore Water Damage From Ice And Snow
Water Damage From Snow And Ice
Significant snowfalls are not uncommon in this area of Colorado increasing the possibility that homeowners may experience the water damage challenges posed by ice dams. When roofs and gutters are covered with a wintry coating of snow and ice, no matter how beautiful and glittering on the outside, severe devastation may be occurring to the interior of your home as moisture makes its way inside at the roofline. SERVPRO technicians are trained in the thermodynamics behind the ice dam phenomenon that can wreak havoc on your home, offering solutions to eliminate the seepage and to restore and repair the resulting water damage.
Water damage in Longmont can be a very unpleasant side effect of the seemingly innocent blanket of snow covering your roof and filling your gutters. Whether a result of months of accumulation or a crisis after a heavy blizzard that dumps a foot or more of snow, the ice that backs up under flashings, shingles and along gutters is a real problem. The ice trapped then melts as the heat of your attic or top story rises to meet the frozen precipitation, allowing the water to damage ceilings, walls and the structural supports in the interior of your home.
The water damage experienced when ice dams build on your roof can be stealthy, often occurring in hidden areas not often viewed by the homeowner. Rather than a steady drip or gush, you may notice a damp or musty smell in the upper reaches of your home. Eventually, walls may bulge or ceilings bow leaving you puzzled and concerned as to how this destruction happened. Moist wallboard or wall coverings may feed mold in the dead of winter, unexpected yet very much in need of the water damage remediation expertise of SERVPRO.
