Did you know that snow build-up can cause a "ton" of problems, including structural damage?
Protect your property from ice and snow damage with a call to Ledegar Roofing before bad things happen. Wonder what is causing the ugly brown stains throughout your home or business? These are a tell-tale signs of water damage, and an immediate signal that you must remove any large amount of snow from your roof.
Even if a snow-covered roof does not collapse, the melting snow can cause problems. Sunny skies and heat from your home can warm snow on your roof, causing ice damming, sliding, and falling snow. These things lead to water intrusion, which will damage the interior of your building if gone unchecked. When snow melts, water often trickles through cracks in your roof. Water damage can cause ceilings, infrastructure, and roofs to warp or rot, causing expensive repairs and headaches that can easily be avoided.
Plus, falling snow is just plain dangerous!
