Snow and Ice Build Up and The Damage it Can Cause to your Home
Winter is a beautiful and magical time of year. The snow fall makes for a picture perfect kind of day. But what happens if you leave all that snow on your roof and in your gutters to freeze?
Snow Damns- When snow falls on your roof and the temperature is above freezing, the snow melts and trickles down to a part of your roof that is colder and below freezing. The water then freezes and expands which can damage your shingles, open up cracks and create a snow damn. They may be beautiful to look at but they create an awfully expensive roof repair when not attended to properly.
Cave in's- if we have a bad snow storm, large amounts of snow can accumulate on your roof and if it is not removed in a timely manner, the weight of the snow could cause your roof to cave in.
