Dangers Of Accumulating Snow On Your Roof
There are many potential dangers of accumulating snow on the roof of your house. But in case you are not aware of the potential problems that can arise, perhaps if you are new to the colder and snowier climate of St. Paul, they include the following:
Even the light, fluffy kind of snow we sometimes get is heavy. With temperature fluctuations, the light, fluffy kind of snow will compress and become denser, and when the temperature goes up a few degrees, melting will cause the snow to liquefy more. And when water is present, the weight increases. The added weight to your roof can cause serious structural damage.
Your seamless gutters will do a lot to prevent leaks, but no gutter can prevent all leaks. When a house has an enormous amount of added weight on its roof, the cubic-feet of snow will begin to melt, and the water will need to go somewhere. Often, it finds its way into your house.
Cave-ins are almost always associated with the added weight on a house’s roof. If you have neglected the accumulating snow on your roof for long enough, the weight can cause the structure to fail.
Ice dams form when snow/ice accumulation is large enough and has nowhere to go. Your gutters may be doing excellent work, but the accumulation of snow and ice can overwhelm them. Ice dams can weigh thousands of pounds.
This type of damage can be prevented.
