Snow can cause extensive damage to your roof if it is not removed. Here are some ways that snow can damage your roof:
- Ice dams: Snow that melts and refreezes can create ice dams on the side of your house which can prevent proper drainage and cause leaks.
- Structural damage: The weight of snow can cause stress on the roof trusses leading to damage over time. It can also weaken the structural integrity of your roof.
- Cracked shingles: The weight of snow can cause shingles to crack and break. This compromises the protective layer of your roof which can lead to more severe damage.
