Snow Damage, In Lufkin??
East Texas winters are not typically known for having the harshest of conditions, however every year serves to be unpredictable. Within the first couple weeks of January this year, we have seen more snow in a 24-hour period than we have in the past few years combined. So, many Lufkin homeowners and businesses are not always prepared for these conditions and the challenges they can present. Because while nice fluffy snow is fun for a little while, it can quickly melt leave your home or business surrounded in water.
Snow can provide a variable amount of water damage issues, especially when the weathers heats up and it begins to melt. In the Lufkin area (and in East Texas in general), trees and foliage are commonly growing near and/or above many houses and businesses. The falling temperature can cause the water inside surrounding trees to freeze, causing the limbs to be much weaker. Having sudden heavy snowfall can put extra weight on some of those trees’ limbs, causing them to fall. Falling limbs could have no effect and simply hit the ground outside, or they could unfortunately fall onto your roof and puncture your roof. With the snow also melting quickly because of rising temperatures, this can rapidly turn into a major leak into your home.
