Helping Minimize the Effects of Cold and Rainy Weather on the Interior of Homes in Waterbury

The roof over your house in Waterbury should have no gaps in between individual shingles, and it should also contain adequate insulation. The vents and ducts should also contain no gaps between attachment points or sections. These can create places where energy becomes lost or wasted. Ducts from dryer vents can also let damp air increase the humidity inside the attic space. 

Keeping the roof and attic's contents in excellent shape can help keep your residence in Waterbury protected from flood damage and stormy weather over the fall and winter months. Another possible cause of higher heating costs comes from gaps in between shingles where massive deposits of ice forced melted water through in previous winters. 

These layers of ice, snow, and melted water are called ice dams. They not only weaken shingles and allow water to come in when they reoccur, but ice dams also lead to water damaged insulation. Once wet, insulation loses its ability to keep warm air in and cold air out. Compressed areas also fail to perform as insulation should. Our building services department's crew can help repair your roof, and reinstall insulation in compromised locations. 

Ducts with gaps or leaks also perform better after some minor repairs in many cases, saving our customers from excessively high heating costs over the coming winter months. Damp air escaping can benefit microbial populations and lead to mildew growth in stored items within the attic. We can help by cleaning and restoring any affected items to preloss condition. We do this using a variety of different methods. 

In some homes, we find that moisture trapped within exterior walls also leads to the occupants experiencing cold spots in rooms. We have equipment that resolves this issue, from detection to elimination of the dampness. Our reconstruction services help ensure that your home looks “Like it never even happened,” when we finish and do our final walk-through with you.

SERVPRO of Waterbury knows insulation in the uppermost areas of your Cheshire or Prospect home can minimize the loss of heat during the winter. Call us at (203) 757-5050 for experts who can perform the work necessary to make your home more energy efficient by mitigating damage caused by rain, snow, and ice.
