 We are in the middle of winter and the Ozarks' has already experienced some harsh temperatures, snow, and ice. Although a wintery mix is a bit unpredictable in our area, when we do get cold temperatures, snow, and ice it can affect your roof. Read on to find out a few of the common hazards associated with winter from our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks !  #1 Ice Dams One of the biggest roofing concerns during the winter months is ice dams. An ice dam is the result of an accumulation of ice and water on the roof and under the shingles.
