How Destructive Can Winter Storms Be

Winter storms can cause serious damage to Michigan homes – but the good news is that insurance might cover the repairs.

Fortunately, we can help you get your life back on track. We repair winter storm damage quickly and efficiently.

How Destructive Can Winter Storms Be?

Winter storms can do thousands of dollars in damage. Some of the main causes we see include:

  • Ice. Ice is heavy, and it can begin damaging your home with just 0.25 inches of accumulation.
  • Wet snow. Wet snow sticks to trees and power lines, and it’s heavy just like ice is. Usually, wet snow does more damage in the spring than it does in the middle of winter. It can go so far as to collapse your roof.
  • High winds. Winter storms can bring high winds with them, and that adds even more stress to your home’s structure. The winds can be strong enough to rip off tree branches in some areas.
  • After-snow flooding. When the snow melts quickly, we’re at risk for flooding. Water damage is no joke – it can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs if you don’t have insurance.

What if Your Home is Damaged by a Winter Storm?

If your home has been damaged by a winter storm, the first thing you need to worry about is safety. Make sure you and your family – and your pets – evacuate if necessary; wait for instructions from emergency services personnel.
