Winter Roofing Tips From New York's Best Roofing Contractor, Queens, New York

Winter weather in New York means ice on the roads and hours spent trying to clear snow from your driveway. It also means care has to be taken to avoid potentially costly issues with your roofing. The specialists at JC Home Roofs and Sidings, a leading roofing contractor serving Queens, NY, and the surrounding areas, offer these winter roofing tips to help protect your roof:

  • Practice Diligent Snow Removal: You clear your driveway of snow, and the same care needs to be taken with your roof. Heavy snowfall can add up to 20 pounds of weight per cubic foot to your residential roofing. The wetter the snow is, the more weight it adds, and wet snow can add as much as 60 pounds per cubic foot of weight. Though residential roofing in a colder climate like New York's is built to bear some additional load from snow, the best practice is to remove snow from your roofing as soon as possible to avoid issues like a collapse. This should ideally be done by a qualified residential roofing contractor to prevent any serious damage.
  • roofing contractorKeep Drains & Downspouts Clear: If your residential roofing has drains and downspouts that are clogged with debris, this can cause water to pool once the snow on your roof begins to melt. This pooled water can eventually create leaks in your roofing.

In business for more than 30 years, JC Home Roofs and Sidings is staffed with professionals who have the expertise and experience to help you keep your residential roofing in top shape throughout the winter. If heavy snowfall has accumulated on your roofing, this residential roofing contractor will send capable technicians to remedy the issue so you can avoid the serious long-term problems that can come with a roof that is overburdened.
