Indianapolis homeowners want to avoid water damage and the potential for rotting and mold at all costs—and we don’t blame you! No one wants to go searching for water damage restoration services. Because winter weather can cause mayhem to your home, we at Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services, Inc. want to pass along a few tips for avoiding water damage this season.
1. Clean out your gutters.
If you haven’t already, make sure nothing is obstructing your gutters. (You may decide that hiring a roofing professional may be your safest bet whenever you’re dealing with a roof.) A free-flowing gutter is less likely to back up and force water into areas of your home.
2. Keep an eye out for ice dams.
When Indianapolis snow falls and begins to pile up on your roof, watch the areas in or around your gutters or eaves. The heat emitted from your home can melt the snow (which is fine), but when temperatures drop and that melted snow freezes, ice dams can be created. If you notice ice dams on your roof, you may want to call a snow removal contractor skilled at removing ice dams.
3. Hire a professional.
If you don’t have the time, ability, or the know-how to keep your home free of water damage this winter, we recommend that you hire someone. We’d rather see you be proactive than to find your Indianapolis home face the ill effects of the elements.
