Different Weather, Same Threat of Storm Damage

When you think of storm damage, the first to come to mind might be wind damage from tornadoes or damage from hailstorms. You also may think that since we don’t see those storms during the winter, you shouldn’t be worried about storm damage. I hate to burst your bubble, but there is the same threat for storm damage during the winter months.

The weather may be different, but we still have storms. Especially through Columbiana we see blizzards and winter storms frequently this time of year. There are more threats than you think you need to prepare for, such as:

  • Heavy snow collecting on roofs and trees
  • Cold temperatures causing frozen pipes
  • Ice dams forming on your roof
  • Intense winds posing the same threats as thunderstorms/tornadoes
  • After a blizzard, heavy snow melts can cause excess water to damage structures

As you can see, there are some major storm damage threats in the winter months that could damage your home or business in Columbiana. There are some ways to prepare for these threats:

  • Seal any holes in your home that are exposed to the outside air
  • Remove snow from your roof (either on the ground with a shovel, or call a professional!)
  • Monitor areas with the largest threat, like your roof
  • Remove snow close to your home before it thaws out

These are great prevention tips, but it may not be enough.
