Direct Storm Damages

Preventing flood damage to Danbury homes is not possible when severe weather events compromise the integrity of the building's envelope. Fallen trees, hail, and fierce winds can all be attributed to piercing holes or exposing vulnerabilities in the roof where water runoff can make its way inside. 

Heavy Snowfall Weight

Weighty snowfall can be another dire circumstance for homes and businesses, especially those with flat roofs capable of sustaining several feet of fallen snow after blizzard conditions. Without the appropriate temperature rise to melt this snow, the weight can be a crippling force on aging roofs. When vulnerabilities exist, water penetration follows. 

Ice Damming

Largely, one of the alarming possibilities during winter events like cold snaps is ice damming. Inconsistent insulation under the roof can cause snowmelt from escaping heat, which freezes along the roof's edges, forming a dam. Water backup pushes under shingles and roofing materials to penetrate the attic.
