While we home everyone stayed warm and safe during Grayson's winter storm, here are some tips from us at Hillman Homes to ensure your home is safe and less susceptible to future damages.

  • Roof: Be sure to check for any weaknesses, loose, or missing shingles. Ice dam's can form, and high winds can tear off shingles. An ice dam occurs when snow on the roof melts, runs to the edge and refreezes there, forcing water back up under the roof where it can cause leaks and shingles deterioration.
  • Fallen branches or trees: Heavy snow can cause branches to threaten your home. It can break and bend causing damage even to the tree itself. You can remove snow gently and carefully, branches may be weak due to the cold. For advice, consult an arborist. 
  • Gutters: Snow and heavy ice can build up on the edge of your gutters and pull them away from the roofline. Also, check for any clogging.
  • Leaks: Inspect areas like the attic and crawl space for hard to find leaks and water damage.
  • Frozen Pipes: Look in on your washing machine hose as well as under sinks for damage from frozen pipes. Also, check in on your water heater for any signs of corrosion. Don't forget to check exterior piping as well! And repair immediately. 
  • Exterior Sidings: Inspect for pieces that may have come loose during storm or peeling paint. If unattended your siding could become vulnerable to moisture, which can lead to rotting wood. 

Lastly, give your neighbors a call; especially seniors! Lend a helping hand, your neighbors might need help clearing their walkways, or check in and see if they have enough supplies.

Stay safe and should you need any help finding vendors for house repairs, don't hesitate to give us a call. We are happy to help and show you that Not all Realtors are the Same!
