Be Ready for Winter Storms!
Do you know the true power that Winter storms possess? Heavy snowfall, flooding, ice, extreme wind speeds, and much more can cause severe damage to your home during a time where being caught without shelter or power could potentially mean life or death. It is always wise to have a plan set in place and one or more "go" bags ready to be used in a moment's notice!
Excessive snow can quickly pile up and cause damage to your home by collapsing the roof. This can further lead to things like water and mold damage now that it has entered your home.
Extreme winds can lead to shattered windows and damaged roofing/vehicles. The last thing you want during a powerful winter storm or blizzard is to have a broken window in which snow and water can accumulate and cause damage!
Ice can build up on your walk-ways and driveway and become a dangerous obstacle for you to face when leaving for work or shoveling. The last thing you need is to take a hard fall and injure yourself.
These are just a few of the ways that winter storms can leave both you and your property damaged and in need of repair. Pay attention to your weather channels and any alerts that are issued by your state/district, these could help you prevent damage to your home. Put together a plan with your family and practice it a lot if you have little ones, make sure to keep long shelf life supplies ready to go and stored away as well! Stay safe and stay warm this winter!
