While you may not notice little leaks in the summertime — or perhaps they simply don’t bother you as much — the discomfort that comes with cold rooms is enough to cause you to make sure everything is sealed tight by the change of seasons. Not only do energy leaks in your home cause a chill, but they also make your energy bills skyrocket, which is something everyone wants to avoid.
In order to keep the bills low and your home toasty warm this winter, you have to avoid those leaks as much as possible.
To prevent leaks and roof collapses during the winter, you must take measures to avoid ice dams. Ice dams refer to barriers of ice that form at the edge of a roof and prevent water from flowing off. As a result, the water from rain or melted snow will pool in the center of the roof and potentially seep through or cause the roof to collapse under the pressure. This may sound scary, but there’s no need to worry. Simply follow this guide on how to prevent ice dams during the winter, and your roof will stay safe and sound throughout the colder months of the year.
Cleanliness and maintenance, both inside and outside your home, is extremely important for maintaining an excellent quality of life. Since people spend most of their time indoors, many homeowners forget that their home’s exteriors require just as much care and attention as its interiors.
