New roof + snow = door that sticks!
Hi, all --
We had a new roof done about a year ago because the old one was pushing 20 and we wanted to get gutters onto the house. We hadn't had any trouble with the previous roof, though the former owners of the house put heating wires on so we gather they had ice dam problems.
Anyway, our house is a split-entry with the kitchen upstairs and the deck located off the kitchen. There is a standard, hinged door leading out to the deck from the kitchen. Ever since we had the new roof and gutters done, whenever it snows, even a little bit, the door sticks so badly we can hardly open it. This never, ever happened before the roof was done, so I have to believe the two things are connected.
I have heard of deep/heavy snow causing this problem, but we got only 3-4 inches which is nothing around here.
I don't see obvious signs of ice. Can anyone tell me what I should be thinking/doing/repairing? Do we call the roofer back to make him inspect?
Thanks very much.
