Weight of Snow Can Affect Your Roof

snow collapses roof Regular roof maintenance is important all year round especially during winter.

In New England we often experience snow storms in the winter. Heavy snow storms are not only an issue for the pavement and the public roadways. Snow can also affect your roof by adding more weight to your roof, which can over time weaken your roof.

After the snow storm passes the accumulation of the snow can also cause damage to your roof. This is because of the moisture penetration when the snow or ice begins to melt then gets frozen again. Depending on the type of roof you have, the moisture in the roof can expand and ultimately cause your roof to wear out more quickly. A damaged roof can affect your entire home!

It is important that before the cold weather arrives that you have an idea of the current condition of your roof. If you have an attic you should inspect it as often as possible especially after severe weather to ensure there are not any leaks or staining on the ceiling. This can be a telling sign that there is a roof issue that will need immediate attention.

At SERVPRO of Allston, Brighton & Brookline we can help remove snow from your roof and repair walls and ceilings affected by water damage. Call us today for more information 617-903-5055!
