Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/31/2017 -- Residents who do not have the best track record of watching their roof for seasonal changes are urged by C.R. Thompson Roofing, one of the area's top providers of emergency roofing services in Philadelphia, to be aware of the dangers that ice dams can cause to their home.
As winter rolls around, residents will soon be dealing with the dangers of snow on their roof, which can quickly turn into a dangerous and expensive-to-fix ice dam if residents are not careful and don't call their roofing company in Philadelphia when they begin to notice signs of trouble.
As a general rule, snow accumulating on one's roof is of little consequence except under extreme circumstances. For example, if over 12 inches of snow piles up on one's roof.
However, the vast majority of winter-related roofing concerns come along when the snow starts to melt. Heat tends to rise; as residential homes begin to heat up, heat is lost out the top of the roof and causes a small amount of snow to melt and work its way down the shingles, where it refreezes. As this process occurs over and over again, an ice dam can form on residential roofs, which can cause serious problems to the structural integrity of the entire home if left untreated.
The best way to prevent ice dams is to take the time to make sure that all residential roofing is up-to-code and that there is minimal area for heat to leak through. Residents who are interested in scheduling a checkup to make sure that their roof is ready for winter or inquiring about flat roofing in Philadelphia are encouraged to contact C.R. Thompson Roofing by calling 215-375-7904 today.
