Snow during the winter season can weigh you down; it can also impact the roof of ones home in a serious manner. Here are a few helpful signs and suggestions that may help you avoid roof damage.
Depending on the amount of moisture content, the weight of snow can vary. Needless to say the heavier the load the higher the risk. An important aspect to consider is the slope. A flat or slight slope will allow snow to accumulate. This accumulation can compromise the structural integrity and cause damage. Conversely, a steep slope allows snow to slide off; relieving the potential pressure of a thick covering.
