Time to Prepare For Winter
The temperature is dropping and we have had our first snow. We know winter is coming - and, maybe, quickly! Is your roof ready? Are your gutters cleaned out so any melting snow is free to run off of your roof properly? Is your attic properly insulated to prevent ice dams? Ice dams can be a major problem during the winter season. They form when heated air melts roof snow downward into water dammed behind still-frozen ice. When the trapped water cannot safely flow or run into the gutter system, it can backflow under the roof's shingles and into the structure's interior areas. Your local SERVPRO of Douglas & Otter Tail Counties professionals can help mitigate water damage caused by ice dams and help you get your structure back to preloss condition.
