With severe weather events, such as an ice-storm, dangers to your roof may not be obvious but they are there. Here in the South, this risk is pretty low that enough snow or ice could build up in enough quantities to cause major roof damage such as collapses on it’s own, especially with well-maintained, healthy roofing systems. However, even in smaller amounts, ice can accumulate on branches, power lines, and other objects causing them to fall onto nearby roofs. Ice has been known to take down entire trees in certain circumstances, especially if you have trees near your home, you roof could be at risk during the storm from this falling debris. Even a few small limbs covered in ice can rip shingles off a roof and even puncture it.
If it happens, there is little that can be done during the storm but to evacuate the affected area, if it’s serious, and call Atlanta Roofing Specialists as soon as possible. During times like these, roofing contractors can get extremely busy and must serve customers on a case by case basis.
