Rain is one of the leading causes of weather related water damage, but winter hazards like snow, ice, and standing water can also cause problems. Unlike cracked pipes or broken appliances, snow, ice, and standing water can seep through your roof and leave mold, rotted wood, and structural damage behind.
When you prepare your home for the winter season, you can prevent water damage and save money on unnecessary expenses. Nearly 40 percent of American homeowners claim that they have incurred financial losses because of water damage, according to a recent Water Damage Defense article. The average cost of a home water damage claim is $6,965, leaving homeowners with a hefty bill during the most expensive season of the year (Water Damage Defense).
