Every season comes with challenges, especially when it comes to roofing. But winter probably is the trickiest season for roof repair and maintenance. Ice and snow can create a lot of problems for your roof that can lead to further damage. At Pro Exteriors, we know that New England winters can be pretty severe and that you want to do everything you can to protect your home and family. A question many roofing contractors receive this time of year is whether or not you should remove the snow from your roof.
Here’s what we think as roofing contractors about removing snow from your roof.
There are also preventative measures you can take. There are de-icing products that you can apply to your roof before it snows, similar to the treatments we put on roads ahead of icy weather. The de-icer will help to melt the ice or snow as it hits your roof.
