Winter comes quickly in Michigan. For those of us who are familiar, this means roads covered in ice, slushy snow days, and long dark winter nights. From shoveling snow day after day to driving on icy roads, snow can put a lot of stress on homeowners. But it can also put a lot of stress on your roof. In this blog, we’ll outline exactly how snow and ice affect your roof.
Try to Avoid DIY Snow Removal
Heavy snowfall can cause severe roof damage if not properly removed. However, you should avoid trying to remove snow on your own to avoid puncturing shingles or damaging your roof’s waterproof membrane.
Instead, contact your local roof professional contractor to do the job for you. Call Energy Shield for a free estimate.
