It seems as though the cold has returned once more, and I think it’s safe to say that no one is excited.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m a big time ski freak, but the temps have to be at least somewhat reasonable! Now it also seems like Mother Nature cannot seem to make up her mind just yet, as two days ago it was almost 50 degrees, and now it’s back in the bone-chilling teens.  And what about the precipitation recently? We’ve been dumped on with snow, but then with the warm weather last week, much of that snow melted, in large part assisted by the rain as well.  What we’re trying to get at here is that with this significant movement in winter weather from extreme to mild, and then back to extreme, is that your house will more than likely be feeling the effects as well.

One of the best things that you can do for your home’s well-being is invest in a roof rake.  Just like it sounds, a roof rake allows you pull (or push) the accumulated snow off of your roof to alleviate it from the weight.  Furthermore, this will prevent other threats from occurring to your home’s exterior, such as ice dams or other types of winter weather issues that are caused from snow and ice build up.  This all means that your home, and your CT homeowners insurance policy, will remain safe and intact.

And speaking of CT homeowners insurance, we insure for risk of direct physical loss to covered property resulting from collapse of your home or a piece of your home CAUSED ONLY BY ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:

  • decay you may be unaware of
  • weight of contents, equipment, animals or people
  • weight of precipitation which collects on a roof
  • use of defective material or methods in aleration, construction, remodeling or renovation if the collapse occurs during the course of the alteration, construction, remodeling or renovation.

Here at Paradiso Insurance, we understand the concern that homeowners face during this very trying time. We want you to know we are here for you if you have any questions regarding your current policy or questions in general regarding coverage at (860) 684-5270.
