Winter is here and as a homeowner, it’s important to check your property for issues and commit to regular preventative maintenance. Doing this will save you stress and money in the long term. In our latest Campbell & Halliburton Regina home insurance tip, we share important information from SGI regarding ice dams.

Spotting and Preventing Ice Dams – Tips and Information From Campbell & Haliburton Insurance

Freeze, thaw, freeze, thaw – those are the ideal conditions to make an ice dam. And that’s something we know you don’t want. Ice dams will cause a lot of damage to the walls, ceiling and insulation of your home. They may even lead to mould.

With the weather cycle we’re currently experiencing, we’ve put together some information to help you prevent major ice damming problems in your home.

What’s an ice dam?

Ice dams are caused by on- and off-periods of melting and freezing. Snow becomes a layer of insulation on your roof, which warms up the air in your attic. Your warm attic then causes the snow to melt and roll down to the edge of the roof and the soffits. Unless the melted snow is able to drain properly, it will freeze and build up over time creating ice dams.

Throughout the winter, if this weather cycle keeps going and the ice dams spread up the roof, water will eventually work its way under your shingles and get into your attic. The water can seep into your insulation causing it to fail. As a result, warm air from your home will rise into your attic making the ice dam grow.

icicles in roof cause ice dam issuesIce damming is a vicious cycle. If you don’t take care of it right away, it’s going to get worse. Over time, wet surfaces attract mould, which causes breathing problems and makes repairs much more expensive and labour intensive.



4 tips to prevent ice damming


Keep the snow load down

You should always keep the snow load on your roof to a minimum to prevent it from causing an ice dam. However, we don’t recommend climbing on top of the roof yourself. Use a roof rake or hire a professional to clear away excess snow. Read SGI tips for using a roof rake.

Clear your gutters and downspouts

Melting snow and icy water need somewhere to go. Clean leaves out of your downspouts and gutters in the fall and then dispose of ice, snow and gunk regularly throughout the winter. Break off any icicles that develop around the roof of your home.


Keep the air moving in your attic

Your attic needs good insulation and ventilation. Without it, the heat inside your home will leak into the attic and cause the snow on the roof to melt. We recommend bringing in a roofing contractor to make sure the airflow is working properly.

Make sure fans and venting are well-sealed


Many homes have exhaust fans, air ducts, chimneys, attic hatches and pipes – and many of these are vented into the attic. They’re designed to move airflow properly but if they aren’t sealed well, extra air can escape around them. We recommend getting into your attic and checking the seals. If they need help, you can fix them yourself or hire a professional to take care of them for you. Good seals will also save you money by keeping your house warmer and preventing your furnace from working as hard to heat it.

 

 

As you walk out of our door, you can do so with the assurance that you are covered with the home insurance that best meets your needs. If you don’t have an insurance broker and want to talk to someone who is truly passionate about your insurance, contact us at Campbell & Haliburton Insurance. We would love to help you.

Trusted Regina team brags about Skott Enns as a Trusted Regina Mortgage Broker

The Trusted Regina team is thrilled to brag about our newest Trusted Regina Mortgage Broker. We are thrilled to welcome Skott Enns back to the Trusted Regina Community of business operated with integrity. 



Why does Skott Enns get the thumbs Up from Trusted Regina?



Skott Enns has been a Regina mortgage broker since 2017, and he was voted Regina's Best Mortgage Broker for 2021! That is 8 out of the past 9 years that Skott has been the recipient. If you are looking for free expert mortgage advice from a multi-award-winning, Trusted Best Regina mortgage broker, whose number one motivation is always your BEST interest then you should definitely consider Skott Enns! 

Skott is committed to providing the best service for his clients, and he has put together a team to make the mortgage process as efficient and easy as possible. He is authentic in his desire to help people, and as such, he works hard to ensure he has the best mortgage type and rates for each situation and every unique circumstance. 

So a bit about me! Growing up, I was never one of the jocks. Oh I played, soccer, hockey, and ball just like all the kids, but I was never really that good. Usually one of the last picked on the team… clearly it wasn’t my destiny to be a professional athlete.Instead, I loved puzzles, seriously, I was a pretty big nerd… my head was always buried in a crossword, brain teaser, mind bender, word search, or sudoku. As a Regina mortgage professional, nothing has really changed. I see every new clients’ mortgage as a puzzle that needs to be solved. Let me assure you, I do not rest until the solving is done! Specifically, some of the puzzles I enjoy working on now are clients who are new immigrants to Canada seeking their first mortgage, self-employed, recently separated, or buying their first home and… First Time Home Buyers are a personal favourite – I like first timers even more than Sudokus!  As each client is different, handling financing for investment properties, purchase plus improvementsmortgage refinancing and mortgage renewals provides a unique challenge.
On a personal note, I am a proud husband and father. My wife Shawna and I have twin boys and a daughter, and we are a VERY active family. We travel, play outside, get dirty in the mud, and love to see and experience new things! Life is pretty good!- Skott Enns.

When speaking to Skotts clients, including other Trusted Regina partners, as part of our unique Trusted verification process it is easy to see why so many of them voted for him to be Regina's best mortgage broker year after year.

" Skott is a kind, conscientious, and ethical professional. He goes the extra mile. We had a very complex mortgage file and he worked with us to get the best possible arrangement under very tight timelines. I highly recommend him." - Valerie Sluth, Regina .

Bergens AutoBody Trusted Regina Auto Body Tip On Collision Avoidance Technology

Bergens Auto Body is a Regina family collision repair and auto body shop and from the moment you call you will be treated like family! They are proud to have an amazing 80 Years Auto Body Experience, and they have been serving Regina Auto Body needs for over 30 Years....they have a loyal customer base that simply wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Bergens are Regina's best OEM Certified, SGI Accredited Collision repair shop and Bergen's Auto Body is a Trusted Regina Auto Body Shop.

Collision- avoidance is advanced technology available on an ever-growing range of vehicles.

Could you ever have imagined a time in your life when your car would be able to “see” other vehicles or pedestrians?  This amazing technology is now readily available, and that means many new cars and trucks can now anticipate collisions, and automatically apply the brakes or take corrective steering actions!!

Some of these capabilities, such as forward-collision warning systems, have been around for a few years, mostly on high-end luxury cars. Others, like steering assist, are just getting added. We are happy to share that collision-avoidance systems are getting better and are spreading to mainstream cars.

Radar, Cameras and Lasers Utilized in Collision Avoidance Systems

These cutting-edge active safety systems rely on a number of sensors, cameras, lasers, and short- and long-range radar. They monitor what is going on around the vehicle—vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and even road signs—as well as the vehicle itself. Inputs are processed by computers, which then prompt some action from the car or the driver. Those actions may start with attention-grabbers, such as a beep, a flashing dashboard icon, a tug from the seatbelt, or a vibration in the seat or steering wheel. If the driver doesn’t respond, the more advanced systems then apply partial or full braking force. If a warning system emits too many inappropriate alerts, however, then there is an increasing temptation to switch it off.

“In the end, these systems can do a lot of good in preventing crashes from happening in the first place. But it’s still very important for drivers to realize that no matter how much collision-avoidance technology is on your vehicle it never reduces the need to stay alert at all time.” Jon Bergen

Here at Bergen’s Auto Body & Collision Centre, we treat you like family and that means we work hard to give your vehicles back to you properly and most importantly safely!
