The winter season by itself can make caring for your home a challenge due to the temperature and weather conditions. However, if a winter storm happens to hit your area, this can make home maintenance potentially problematic. Once the winter storm has passed, it’s understandable if you want to inspect every part of your home that can be affected, but where exactly should you start?
Here, ARCH Exteriors, LLC, a leading installer of replacement windows, gives you a quick guide to help you inspect your home after a winter storm.
Before heading outside to inspect your home, make sure to start inside by checking the attic. Check if there are any leaks by searching for water stains on the ceiling or traces of water on the floor or insulation. If water is present, this is a clear sign that you should call a professional as soon as you can.
Roof and Gutters
After you’ve checked the attic, consider calling a roofer to inspect your roof for cracks or missing shingles. That way, any damage it sustained can be fixed immediately before it causes further damage to your home. Make sure to have them check your gutters for ice dams. If needed, have them remove the ice dams and debris as well as they can cause moisture to seep beneath your shingles. To get an expert storm damage restoration professional to repair your roof, don’t hesitate to turn to roofing company ARCH Exteriors, LLC.
Cold temperatures can cause major issues for your pipes. In fact, the freezing waters in your pipes can cause them to burst, creating a serious plumbing problem for your home. With that in mind, make sure to call a plumber to inspect and repair both your indoor and outdoor pipes once the storm is over.
