Snow Damage

Snow Troubles in Missouri

Living in St. Louis, St. Charles, and St. Peters, we’re no strangers to snow, and it’s that time of year when we adorn our homes with wintry decorations. Those charming icicles hanging from your roof can add to the festive spirit and bring less-than-charming damage if not handled carefully. Weight is a critical concern, especially when melting snow and ice.

At Roofing Center, a trusted family-owned business since 2001 serving St. Louis, St. Charles, and St. Peters as the premier roofing contractors, we understand the unique challenges Missouri weather presents.

Different regions of Missouri experience varying amounts of snow during the winter. These differences make it crucial to stay vigilant against potential snow damage.

Ice Dams

The weather can change rapidly, shifting from snow to sunshine in hours. This rapid change is a significant factor in the formation of ice dams.

When snowstorms pass through various parts of Missouri, they leave a snowy blanket on our roofs. Soon after, the sun emerges and warms things up. This combination can lead to trouble as the accumulated snow and icicles obstruct the flow of melting snow, creating pools of water on your roof.

Your home’s insulation keeps the interior warm, while ventilation systems maintain a cool attic. Unfortunately, this duo hinders snow from melting entirely, causing potential harm to your roof. The Roofing Center is here to help you safeguard your roof from such issues. Contact us today for expert assistance in protecting your home from the whims of Missouri’s weather.
