This winter, we have seen quite a bit of snow, if you’re one of the many people who did not clear the loads of snow from their roof, you could be in trouble; leaving a snowy roof can lead to ice dams, which can lead to leaks, which then can lead to collapses! We just recently finished removing snow and ice dams from a number of homes in the Swampscoot MA area.
Most of the roofs we encountered in Swampscott, upon removing the snow, we found that their roof was covered with ice.
What are some signs of ice dams? Well, the most obvious one is a snowy roof, along with icicles forming along the sides and gutters of the home.
If left untreated, ice dams can cause some serious damage to your home, and the repair costs can be pretty outrageous, especially if your roof collapses!
If you’re in the Swampscott MA area, or Boston’s North Shore, please feel free to give Robbins Roofing a call at 781-246-3634 and we will remove snow and ice dams to help prevent leaks and roof collapses!
