A Handyman Helping Hand

roof creaks when snow falls

Posted By: Stephen

I own a ranch-style home in upstate NY. Built in the 70's. I've been in it for the past 5 years or so. During a snowstorm, as the snow builds up, the roof creaks. It has been doing this ever since we've lived here and we've had some mighty snowfalls. The creaking has not worsened over the years and it never sounds worse than a creak here and a creak there during a storm. But, I've started to worry about it this year. Has anyone else experienced this? Could the roof simply be settling under the weight of the snow? Could it be a danger signal? Responses appreciated.
