Some may say that its pretty to have the snow on the roof and natural icicles forming. Well, SERVPRO of Bennington and SERVPRO says' they are not pretty. When an ice damn forms under the snow on a roof, you may have some major issues on the over all structure of the home or business. Just like a regular damn in rivers, lakes and streams, they are made to redirect water. The same thing is happening when an ice damn forms on a roof. However, there is no where for the water to go. So, it gets trapped under the snow, and runs right under the shingles, cracks, valleys, etc causing mayhem. With the winter storms that have hit the Bennington and Rutland counties this winter, we have seen them everywhere. Be sure to clean off your roof on a regular basis in the winter, it could save you from a major disaster.
