Now that old man winter is here to stay, it is time to think of the snow buildup that may be happening on your roof top. While roofs covered in fresh snow can make a pretty wintery scene, it can also do much damage under the blanket of snow and into your home. The snow starts to melt and then re-freezes which causes more stress to the roof of your home. As the ice slowly melts over time, water seeps beneath shingles and under the tar paper. Eventually it will also seep into the plywood beneath, causing damage to your roof, fascia, and soffit.

Ice buildup in your gutters prevents the flow of melted snow to your down spouts for proper drainage. The stacked up ice and snow causes the run off to flow over the lip of your gutters and create long icicles.

Clearing the snow the first 3 to 4 feet of the roof after every snow fall with a roof rake will go a long way in helping to protect your home this winter from the formation of ice dams.

If you do have any water damage to the inside of your home or need assistance in properly removing the snow on your roof contact SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake. The crew at SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake is prepared to help in anyway possible.
