Heavy snow on the single family home’s roof can cause problems.
The condition could be unexpected on the West coast, which doesn’t snow regularly. Like recent weather caught every on by surprise. We had over a week of snow followed by a freezing condition which didn’t allow the snow on the roofs to melt and compiled for days.
Then another wave of wet snow, which is usually heavier than dry snow, pilled over the previous pile. With a bit of rain, the lower layer starts melting and forcing all the piles to the edge of the roof, causing extra weight that most of the roofs are not built for.
So, it’s wise to hire a professional to remove the snow from your roof before any further damage accrues.
Remember, some insurance companies do not cover the snow built up, and you don’t want to end up evacuating your house this holiday season due to the roof damage!!!!
