SNOW IN THE NEW YEAR
Longtime New York residents anticipate rain all-year round, but nothing can prepare us for the drastic temperature drops and snow that typically arrives between November and April. On average, the snowiest months of the year are January and February. With average daily high temperatures between 38 and 41 degrees, we can see why it’s most likely to snow in the new year.
Bizarre Benefit Of A Snowy Rooftop
Snow on the roof is not always bad or a danger to the integrity of your roof and home. A light layer of snow can actually assist in insulating and maintaining the warmth in your home. It also creates an acoustic panel right on top of your home that muffles sound. This creates a more peaceful and serene ambiance in your home. Peace and quiet truly gives all of the White Christmas, off-from-school-snow-day feels!
There’s Always A Catch
If your attic is not properly insulated, heat can escape and cause snow to melt and pool on your roof. Snow is a silent killer, rain comes on loud and fast, but snow goes slow. The damage comes during the melting phase and it slowly seeps into the home. Should you have broken shingles, damaged flashing, or any other issue, the water may be able to seep into your roof and ceilings! This will cost you hundreds of dollars in damages, and hours of headaches on the phone with roofing companies.
