Excess moisture accumulating on your roof, primarily caused by the buildup of ice or heavy snow, has the potential to unveil unsuspected roof leaks. As the snow and ice begin to thaw, water can infiltrate the roof's vulnerable areas and find its way into the interior of your home. This moisture can then seep into the walls, saturating the insulation and studs within.
What might start as a seemingly innocent issue on your roof can quickly escalate into a more extensive problem, compromising your home's structural integrity and potentially leading to mold growth and other water-related damage. Therefore, it's crucial to address these issues promptly to prevent any further harm to your property and maintain a safe and dry living environment.
