Even if a problem was caused by an event covered by insurance, delaying repairs can cause denial of a subsequent insurance claim.

For this reason, it can make sense to have your home inspected by an expert to check for ice damage that might be invisible. This is particularly true with ice that has built up along the gutter areas of roofs, and which can damage the roof. Such damage may not be visible until temperatures turn warmer and the impact of such “ice damming” is evident.
