Snow and Ice Damage in Lubbock, TX
Fall has just begun but it is already getting cold here in Lubbock, TX. And colder weather means snow and ice. It is not uncommon here to see snow in October and many people do not know the damage snow and ice can cause to their home.
Heavy snow fall can cause an overload on your homes roof and in some cases cause your roof to collapse. To prevent this, we recommend getting your home and roof inspected before every winter.
Ice dams can form on your roof, getting water under your shingles and possibly into your homes. To prevent this, we recommend cleaning out your gutters before winter and getting your attic insulated and ventilated.
Icicles forming on your home may be pretty, but they can possibly damage your gutters and your shingles. To prevent this, we recommend using a roof rake to carefully remove any icicles. Insulating and ventilating your attic will also reduce the number of icicles you get on your home.
There are not many things better than sitting inside with your family on a cold evening, drinking hot chocolate and watching movies.
