The Water Damage That We Don’t Experience (Thankfully)

Here in San Antonio and South Texas, we are looking forward to some warmer weather. Unfortunately, for our neighbors up north, winter just keeps going on. One of the items that homes in the Chicago area experience is water damage caused from snow melting on roofs. First the snow starts to melt, and then the temperature drops again below freezing, and then an ice dam forms. And then that is where the real trouble starts, water begins to pool on the ices dam, sometimes coming through the roof and causing water damage. Not all pooling water results in water damage but enough occurs to keep homeowners aware of the danger to their home.
