Why Remove Rooftop Snow

A major roof problem that Newfoundland roof tops face, is the build-up of heavy snow and the development of ice dams. The excess weight of snow can damage roofs, eavestroughs, and down spouts. Excess snow can also block the air flow of the home's ventilation systems. Ice dams form when heavy snow melts during the day, flows under the shingles, and refreezes at night. Ice builds up on the edge of the roof, but snow will melt above the ice ridge and the water will collect and flow under the shingles and into the house, causing tea-colored stains on walls and ceilings and destroying wallboard, plaster and insulation
