When your roof continually accumulates ice and snow, that precipitation often leads to more than just ice dams. If too much snow and ice builds up, it puts stress on your roof and the rest of your home, and part of your roof could collapse due to that stress. Signs that your roof has too much snow and ice include the following:
- Your walls develop severe leaks or cracks.
- Doors in your home pop out of place or get stuck.
- You hear constant popping, cracking, or creaking sounds.
If you think your roof has too much snow and ice on it, you have two main options: remove it yourself with a roof rake or call your roofing contractor to remove it. Either way, remove the precipitation before it has a chance to harm your roof.
