As we get closer and closer to the beauty and warm temperatures that spring brings, it is a good time to recognize the typical elevated levels of precipitation that come with Spring. As resident South Dakotan’s know, spring can mean snow, ice, rain, or a nasty combination of all three.
An early Spring snow can bring snowstorms that leave snow on your roof. While the snow may melt during the day, temperatures can still get below freezing. This freezing and melting cycle can cause an ice dam to form on your roof. An ice dam occurs when melting water becomes blocked by ice. With nowhere to travel, water can get below your shingles and cause damage to your roof. If you encounter water issues with your roof this spring, give SERVPRO of Sioux Falls a call!
