Ice & Snow Damage
It happens when you least expect it. One minute everything is working just fine in your home and the next minute the toilets overflow and are flooding your floors.
Ice damage in Prescott, Payson, and other Northern Arizona cities can cause significant damage to structures and even threaten the structure’s integrity. Ice can appear suddenly during a storm or accumulate gradually throughout the winter season. Often, the damage it causes isn’t fully known until the ice has melted away and the surface of the structure can be fully inspected. At EHS Restoration, we know the devastating potential of ice and our trained response crews can assess the damage and pursue prompt and immediate restoration.
Common Damage Caused By Ice & Snow
Ice can weigh down power lines and gutters, causing them to snap. It can cause roof failure as layer after layer of ice and snow accumulates and exceeds the roof’s maximum weight capacity. Ice can also cause fractures and buckling when it gets into cracks within masonry or on sidewalks. If ice causes water pipes to freeze and burst, the water can flood the home causing considerable damage. Finally, if ice or snow damage causes gas lines to burst or become disconnected, the result can be an immediate threat of fire. The damage goes beyond the unsightly effects of cracked masonry and fallen gutters. Thus, it is important for homeowners and business owners to take prompt action and contact the team at EHS Restoration before the damage progresses and leads to potentially fatal consequences.
Repairing Ice & Snow Damage
The first step in repairing the damage is to remove the ice and any debris that has accumulated. This allows restoration crews to thoroughly inspect the area to determine the necessary repairs. This also helps cut down on the amount of water damage that can be caused as the ice melts. Once we remove the ice and debris, the team at EHS Restoration begins the repair process. These repairs may include installation of new wiring, repairing roof structures, hanging new gutters, resetting masonry, hanging new drywall, or laying new carpet.
Preventing Future Damage
As part of the restoration process, we assess the factors leading to the ice damage we are repairing. Our highly skilled crews can then take steps to correct defects of design or layout that could lead to future ice damage. We also provide counsel to our clients and teach them how they can take steps that will protect their property and possessions. This creates a solid layer of protection against damage down the road when another ice storm blows across Northern Arizona.
