Heavy layers of snow will form ice dams — thick layers of ice. The ice continually melts and refreezes, expands and contracts, and works its way under roof shingles and can cause significant water damage. In addition, the forecast was calling for rain today, and all that snow would absorb a lot of water. The weight of all the snow and water can cause significant structural damage. Last year, an ice arena near us collapsed under the snow load. I’d like to avoid that problem.
