Winter weather can create some issues for your roof with snow being the main concern. Here are some common roof problems caused by snow:
- Roof collapse: If there’s a lot of snow on your roof, it could be very heavy and cause your roof to collapse. The best way to avoid this is to try and get rid of as much snow as you can on your roof.
- Ice dams: When the snow on your roof melts, the water runs off the sides of your houses and refreezes creating ice dams. Ice dams prevent proper drainage which can lead to leaks and water damage.
- Water damage: Excess snow on your roof can lead to water accumulation which can find its way into your home and cause water damage.
