February 19, 2014 Posted in: Insurance News 0 Comments



An ice dam can cause serious damage to your roof and the inside of your home! Follow some of these immediate action steps to prevent damage:

  • Remove snow from your roof after every storm. A good rule of thumb is if there is more than a foot of heavy, wet snow and ice on your roof you should try to have it removed.
  • Clear Downspots. This makes it possible for your gutters to drain when snow melts and it also helps prevent flooding.
