Extreme Maintenance: Home Edition - Winter

New Yorkers are not strangers to extreme Winter weather. Freezing temperatures, snow, and ice can create hazardous conditions for you and your home. It is important to know the risks of such weather and take action to prevent damage to you or your property.

During winter months, snow and ice can accumulate on the roof causing extreme weight to be applied. This can cause a structure collapse, like the roof caving in, or the snow could slide off the roof and damage whatever it lands on. Large ice formations can dam the water caused by melting. The dammed water can then find its way beneath the roof material and into your home. Be mindful of the amount of accumulation and if necessary, take action to carefully reduce the load that is placed on your roof.
