As temperatures drop and winter takes hold in many parts of the country, now is a good time to prepare for the winter chill and to be reminded of how to stay safe during spells of cold weather.
One winter headache a homeowner doesn’t need – and can take steps to avoid – is an ice dam on the roof. Ice dams can damage walls and ceilings and possibly trap moisture, which could lead to mold, mildew and respiratory problems.
You can take steps to ensure your home is well prepared for winter weather – and that your family doesn’t get any colder than they want to be. Consider these suggestions for your comfort and safety.
