Property Damages After Winter Storms

4/16/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Property Damages After Winter Storms This is a home in Northern Monroe County that suffered storm damages after the icicles melted into the home.

Rochester’s weather is quite volatile, especially in the winter. One day it snows a few inches, and the next day the snow melts, and then the next day, there is a winter warning from the lake effect. There is no telling how much snow will fall, but when enough snow collects, there is a danger of property and storm damage and destabilization.

While new roofs can generally withstand 20 pounds per square foot of snow and pressure, not all roofs are new, nor are all roofs built to last. When a winter storm comes, there is always a potential risk of storm damages. This risk increases when snow becomes wetter and heavier. The fluctuation of the weather increases the risk of storm damages. Roofs are not only at-risk during winter storms however. During a thunderstorm or wind storm, roofs are the structure most exposed to the risk of storm damages. Unfortunately, storm damages are one of the few property damages that are difficult to prepare for.
