Harsh winters, lasting seemingly forever, are an unfortunate reality in the Midwest. Extremely fluctuation in temperatures, mixed with heavy precipitation, can cause serious issues for homeowners and commercial property owners including:
Ice damming occurs when warm air from inside the building causes the lower layers of snow or ice on a roof to melt, then as it runs off the roof it freezes on the eves causing ice dams and heavy icicles which can damage your roofing system.
Which leads to gutter blockages making it difficult for the gutter system to properly divert the flow of water off and away from your structure, potentially causing damage to both your roofing and gutter systems.
Roof leaks could transpire from ice, snow, and water build up and begin penetrating through your shingles and into your structure
In certain situations, the dense build-up from snow and ice can become so heavy that your roof structure simply cannot sustain the weight and could collapse.
