Every winter, there’s a battle between your roof and the elements. The question is, is your Danvers roofing adequately protected?

Rain and melted snow can get under a roof’s outer layer (your shingles, slate, or tile, for example) and cause damage. Your roof may also develop ice dams, which are build-ups of ice that form in the gutters and along the eaves of the roof. Every time snow melts and refreezes, it traps water and moisture under your roof’s outer layer. Unchecked, ice dams can loosen your shingles and gutters, as well as cause leaks and sagging. Ever-present moisture from trapped ice also exposes your roof to mold, mildew and rotting.

Icicles forming along the roof edges are a good indicator of ice dams. When you start seeing icicles dangling on your roof, don’t get too excited! It means something’s not working right up there, and it’s time to fix it.
