Winter in metro Detroit is unique from anywhere else in the United States. Our weather can be extreme, and it can also change without notice. Let’s explore the different types of disasters that can occur for homeowners and business owners in Michigan that require Emergency Restoration.
Michigan is known for many things and its windy weather is one of them. The winds in Michigan throughout the year are strong enough to take down power lines, tear off roofing, take down trees, peel off siding, and contribute to the buildup of ice.
Interior and exterior pipes and plumbing can fall victim to the rapid temperature changes during a Michigan winter. As pipes freeze or thaw too rapidly, they can burst causing water damage in the interior or on the exterior of a structure.
When ice accumulates on a roof the sheer weight of ice dams can cause issues with a structure. From weaking a roof to overwhelming a gutter or drainage system, rapidly collecting, or melting ice can wreak having on properties throughout Michigan.
When a structure has poor drainage, water can find its way in between the interior and exterior walls, to the basement, and even into the foundation. Over time, and with the help of the dramatic weather changes in Michigan, this can create a very unstable environment for any structure.
