We have had a lot of snow this year in Saskatchewan (which means a lot more
shovelling too!).. Last summer, I installed vinyl siding on the front of
our house. I have been piling snow in front of the house, but some of it is
piling up against the vinyl siding. Is this a smart thing to do? Will the
snow eventually melt and the water run behind the siding?
On another note: As a result of last year's dry summer, the soil around the
front of the house has pulled away about 1" to 1 1/2" from the concrete
foundation. Will the snow that will be melting eventually run down the
concrete foundation and into our basement???
