How Snow Impacts Your Roof
A little snow every now and then is nothing to be concerned about. In the Buffalo, NY a little snow isn’t the case. With the big winters in Western New York, your roof is most likely at risk for damage caused by the snow and extreme weather the colder months can bring. This is not an issue to be ignored, this is how snow can truly impact your roof:
When snow continues fall during the winter time, your roof starts to suffer from the weight that will continue to build. With that excess weight, the roof will start to cave in. If you notice any signs of this, it is best to get a contractor to look at it as soon as possible. It is even better to prevent it from even happening, as it will save you a great deal of money to avoid replacing your roof and other damage that could come from this.
As ice accumulates on the roof, it can form ice dams. This happens from ice and snow melting, flowing down the roof and the freezing right at the edge of the roof. Ice dams can cause major gutter damage and significant roof issues.
Freeze and Thaw
Accumulation of snow and ice cause cracks to become present. When water seeps into even the tiniest cracks, this could pose a major issue for your roof. These leaks start to spread throughout your home and overtime the crack can become much more prominent. It is possible for even the smallest of cracks to cause a great deal of damage to your roof and home.
