A leak in your roof discovered over the winter will need immediate attention even though roof replacement may have to be put off until spring. Eli Phillips, owner of Alpha through Omega Construction in Casco, says builders can patch the hole as a temporary fix. There are also some do-it-yourself fixes.



Phillps says when the heavy snows do come and you want to remove snow safely invest in a roof rake. While it can be rough on roofs, Phillips says it’s a better alternative to heater coils used to melt snow as it falls.



Phillps says any patching over the winter will be good for two months. He says after that replacement should be considered.
