Snow Threats

Snow Threats LondonThe snow is coming in thick and fast at present. It is fun to play in, but not fun for your home. Snow can cause several problems to the home, which need to be dealt with quickly and efficiently. 

Because snow is an insulator, when it sits on the roof, the underlying snow will melt and this excess water flows towards the guttering. The guttering will be colder, therefore the water refreezes, clogging the guttering. 

If there are wet areas in the attic or on the ceiling it’s because there is so much ice backed up in gutters and small crevices. Known as ice dams and usually occur on low pitched roofs or homes with poor attic insulation.     

If snow is resting against windows, doors and vents, clear it away as quick as possible. The heat which comes from the home will cause the snow to melt in these areas which in turn will become ice. 

Shovel away any piles of snow around your home. The ground is insulated by layers of snow and if these layers sit for long enough, the ground will start to thaw. If it rains when the snow is melting there will be large amounts of water which could be uncontrollable. 

Keep your family warm and your home safe from the threats that snow brings.
