Frozen Fury: The Unseen Perils of Freezing Temperatures and Your Property

As winter descends and temperatures plummet, the beauty of snow-covered landscapes often masks the silent dangers that freezing temperatures bring to our homes. Beyond the picturesque scenes, the cold can wreak havoc on our properties, causing damage that may go unnoticed until it's too late. In this blog, we'll explore the hazards of freezing temperatures and the potential property damage they can inflict, with a focus on how DRYmedic's water damage services can be your saving grace.


The Stealthy Menace of Freezing Temperatures

  • Burst Pipes: One of the most insidious threats of freezing temperatures is the risk of burst pipes. When water inside pipes freezes, it expands, creating pressure that can cause pipes to crack or burst. The result is not only an immediate water leak but also potential flooding once the ice thaws.

  • Ice Dams: The beauty of icicles hanging from your roof may conceal a more sinister problem. Ice dams form when melting snow refreezes at the edge of your roof, creating a barrier that prevents proper drainage. This trapped water can seep into your home, causing damage to walls, ceilings, and insulation.

  • Foundation Cracks: The ground around your home contracts and expands as temperatures fluctuate. This continuous movement can lead to cracks in your home's foundation, compromising its structural integrity and allowing water infiltration.

  • Roof Damage: Heavy snow and ice accumulation on your roof can lead to structural damage. The added weight may weaken the roof and, in extreme cases, lead to collapses, risking not only property damage but also the safety of those inside.
