Living in colder climates like those in Hanover area can be tough. Ice and snow is hard on a home and even tougher on its roof. For instance, during a snow storm the snow can accumulate on a home and put a lot of excess weight on the structure. Just as bad is when the snow melts and seeps under the shingles. Once the water gets into the roof it can freeze again and cause a lot of damage. This is because water expands as it freezes and this expansion can cause separation between the layers of shingles, between the shingles and felt roofing and in the decking. Ice will often accumulate around the eaves and work its way upward. It is often impossible to know that damage has been done without having the roof inspected.
