Snow damage

What a winter storm we had this month! It is one for the record books, but could have also caused record damage to your home. I found this article on the Washington Post site regarding the damage that this storm has done. Click here to read this article.

Ice dams not only causes problems for your roof and gutters, but the water can also find its way into your home. The water can push behind your siding and find a way inside, even now that things are melting.

Once it is found a way to get into your home, it can be absorbed by drywall or carpet padding.
