How Snow and Ice Can Impact Your Roof
Your roof endures extreme temperature changes and inclement weather throughout the year. During the winter season, your roof may experience ice and snow. Dedicated Roofing takes care of roofs year-round, so we have seen firsthand the way snow and ice can affect your roof. The primary problems which homeowners will see include:
- Leaks—As snow and ice melts, it can get underneath your shingles and cause a leak. This leak could cause significant damage to the interior of your home, including your attic, insulation, walls, and more. Leaks can also happen if your gutters are not well-maintained, then melting ice and snow will pool on the roof. Skylights are another common place where leaks can occur if snow builds up.
- Stress—Snow and ice place a significant weight upon your roof. Although we are unlikely to get enough rain and ice to cause structural stress, the weight can still impact the longevity of your roof. The traditional pitched roof style will encourage snow and ice to flow off the roof, but it does not get rid of the problem altogether.
- Ice Dams—Small problems can have a much bigger impact if left unchecked. Ice dams are a ridge of ice that forms around the roof’s edge and prevents snow from melting and running off as it should. Over time, the stress and weight could cause your roof to leak.
Making sure that your roof is in good condition now will save you the hassle down the line. Dedicated Roofing offers professional roof inspections to ensure that your roof is in the best place possible to face the harsh weather ahead. If you have any weak spots, we can address them before ice or snow starts collecting on your roof. When you are ready to be proactive about your roof’s condition, schedule a visit from one of our roofing professionals at Dedicated Roofing.
