When water freezes, it can cause severe property damage due to leaks from ice dams on your roof, flooding from frozen pipes, and even sewage backup. Learn how you can prevent ice from building up, and contact Proserve DKI for water damage restoration services if ice isn’t being nice to you.
Besides being slippery to drive and walk on, ice build-up, due to heavy condensation and temperature fluctuations, can cause the need for extensive water damage cleanup and restoration.
One of the worst threats to your home’s structural integrity is ice dams. Noticeable when ice forms along the edge of your roof, ice dams prevent melting snow from draining properly.
