Rain and Snow Affect Your Roof

Heavy and consistent rainfall gravitates to and infiltrates any weakened areas on the roof. It’s important to inspect your roof to make sure water is flowing off properly to prevent leaks and moisture damage. After a snowstorm, inspect and remove any snow or ice buildup along the edges of your roof. The weight of the snow damages your roof and gutters. In the last 12 months, Philadelphia received the most rain with 38.5 inches reported. Scranton reported 26.9 inches of snow, the most in PA.
