If you are experiencing ice damming on your Pittsburgh property, Pfister Adjusting, Inc. will help you assess the situation, analyze your current coverage and negotiate what you rightfully deserve to cover any damages and loss.
Unfortunately, owning property in Pittsburgh opens the possibility of experiencing ice damming on the roof of your home or business. A harsh winter can have lasting effects that go unnoticed until the damage is done. Knowing what to look for and taking the proper precautions can help avoid potential damage. But first, let us help you understand what ice damming is.
Ice dams, the leading cause of water damage in the winter months, are ridges of ice that form at the edge of a roof and prevent melting snow from draining off the roof. The buildup of water on the roof can lead to leaks through the roofing material. As a result, ceilings, walls, insulation, and other structures can potentially be damaged. In addition, the ice dams become a dangerous hazard if they become loose, potentially harming someone or causing further property damage. Most physical damage is covered by insurance policies, but the hidden mold that forms due to moisture that has gone unnoticed often is not.
To avoid ice damming on your Pittsburgh residential or commercial property, it is important to regularly remove snow from the roof and look for ice buildups. To avoid injury and additional roof damage, this is best handled by a professional snow removal service.
