Whenever heavy snowfall accumulates during the wintertime, as it often does around Boise, Idaho, there is a possibility of a lot of that snow piling up on your rooftop. Even worse, in those areas where it’s warm underneath the roof, it can melt some of that snow, which then freezes into ice because of the cold air outside.
Ice dam buildups like this can cause all kinds of damage to roofing materials by the extra burden they put on your roofing system. When your home is victimized by ice damming, it’s likely that you will have to undergo some kind of costly ice damming cleanup to get things back to normal, including potential roofing repairs.
While there isn’t much you can do to prepare for the possibility of ice dam buildups, you definitely should be prepared for the potential of it happening during winter. When you’re aware that a large amount of snow has fallen in a relatively short period of time, it’s always worth checking your rooftop, to see how much snow has piled up there. This is especially important during prolonged periods of cold and snowy weather when there simply isn’t much respite from the buildup, and no real opportunity for the snow to melt.
Looking For Ice Dams On Your Roof
During the winter months, a few minutes of vigilance can save your roof from thousands of dollars of damage.
You can, of course, attempt to remove the ice dam and all the snow which is burdening your rooftop. However, this is not advisable for several reasons. First of all, it can be dangerous for someone who is not experienced with snow removal on rooftops, to climb up there and try to dislodge what may amount to tons of snow. Even climbing up a ladder in the cold of wintertime is dangerous for most people.
While flat roofs may be less dangerous to climb on, most residential roofs are not really constructed to be level, because that encourages the buildup of water, snow, and ice. You can also cause damage to your roof by trying to remove snow and ice because whatever tools you use for that removal process can inflict material damage to the roofing system. When ice is involved, this becomes even more likely, because ice is much harder to remove, and cannot be simply shoveled away. If you happen to be trying to remove snow and ice while the weather is bad, there’s an even greater chance for some kind of mishap to occur.
