Ice damming occurs when melting snow runs down the surface of a roof and re-freezes.
As run-off refreezes, the ice builds up and begins to dam the subsequent run-off, causing it to pool.
Unfortunately, shingles are designed to shed water with the help of gravity and they don’t perform well against the standing water. Some of the pooled water finds its way under shingles to hidden seams and fastener holes. Some of it re-freezes under the tabs and lifts the shingles, literally opening a floodgate.

Buying a Home: Due Diligence Tips
When purchasing property insurance, doing your due diligence is more than a turn of phrase. The period when a house is under contract is an essential part of the home insurance buying process and requires careful attention to detail.
The due diligence process is the buyer's opportunity to review all facets of a potential home sale. From home inspection findings to homeowner insurance costs, it's when you'll take the time to understand exactly what you're potentially buying.
Floodplain and fire-prone areas may require additional coverage. Make sure you know the estimated costs and what a new homeowners insurance policy will cover.
Being thorough in the due diligence phase will help you uncover potential issues and make the right choices for you and your family.
Know your area. Learn your flood insurance and see when new flood maps will be available for your community.
The Arthur D. Calfee Insurance Agency, Inc. demonstrates this empathetic capacity to connect with clients specifically in its community about policies and preparing for those surprise catastrophes. The LOCAL INSURANCE agency offers home, boat/yacht, auto, disability and life insurance packages to meet the unique needs of the community.
A 2nd generation company solely family-run, the agency originated with founder Arthur from his home in 1980. He comes from a line of leaders; his name “Draper” originates from the Draper Family from Hopedale that was responsible for leading the industrial revolution in Massachusetts. They manufactured Looms, which distributed fabric for women internationally.
Art’s vision expanded beyond his home borders and he eventually began servicing over 3,000 clients in his immediate territory. It was this single-minded dedication to serving his community that endowed him with “Outstanding Citizen of Year” by the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce in 1997.
The agency is now well positioned with developed relationships in the industry, enabling the family team to offer its clients more competitive policies. The list includes Arbella, Safety, Encompass, Plymouth Rock, Travelers, Universal Property, Narragansett, ASI, Scottsdale, Lloyds of London and others.
Legacy is vital in a family-run business that serves its local region, and the insurance agency’s leadership principles have continued with Art’s son, Davidson, as President. He is a humble recipient of the “40 Under 40 Award.”

If you're lucky enough to be a snowbird who travels with the seasons or if you have an extended trip coming up, you're probably thinking about how to best protect your property while you're gone.
Here are a few tips for keeping your home safe from the elements and intruders.
1. Turn off your water. Even small leaks can turn into flooding disasters when left unattended. If you'll be gone a while, consider shutting off the water and draining your pipes. If you do leave the water on, have someone stop by regularly to run the hot water, flush the toilets and check for any problems.
2. Hire a home watching service.Well-meaning neighbors and friends may be happy to check on things while you're away. However, it's a good idea to consider hiring a home watching service instead. These professionals do more than bring in your mail. They're trained to spot issues like slow leaks and will make your home appear occupied during your absence.
3. Review and update your homeowners insurance. Confirm that you have adequate coverage for your unoccupied residence or vacation property. Also, check to see if having a house sitter or caretaker will reduce any potential surcharges you pay when your home is vacant.
4. Embrace smart technology.Thanks to advances in technology, many home security and HVAC systems can be monitored and controlled remotely with a smartphone. Cameras and apps are helpful if you're trying to keep the temperature consistent, turn different lights on and off, and watch for suspicious activity from a distance.
With these steps, you can help keep your home safe and enjoy peace of mind while you're away.
