Roofs don’t like too much moisture. Leaks can occur for many different reasons. Snow leaks in the winter—and leaks during any time of the year in general—are a leading cause of roof issues. Water entering through a roof is destructive to not just the roofing materials and underlayment, but to your home’s interior too.
Snow often gets stuck around the roofline, by the chimney, or in a valley. Eventually, the snow melts, seeping into the surface. If you notice water stains on the walls or ceilings, smell mold, or locate a leak, chances are your roof is past due for repairs, and, unfortunately, the snow just made matters worse.
