Get Ahead of Roofing Problems Caused By Winter Weather
Schedule Your Roof Inspection Today
A tough winter can cause roofing problems! Your roof could have damage from snow, ice or extreme temperatures. These winter-weather factors can cause structural and insulation damage, mold and/or clogged gutters. Temperature extremes and thermal shock place stress on the roof and may cause micro-cracks as the roofing materials expand and contract.
With spring rains, wind and hail coming soon, your roof needs maintenance attention now. Twice-a-year roof inspections and maintenance are essential to the life span of a roof. Winter inspections take care of problems created in winter; fall inspections get your roof ready for winter.
Those icicles may look beautiful but can cause damage to the roof membrane when they fall on the roof surface; sliding ice can place pressure on the seams of roofing materials that may cause roof leaks.
Winter-related problems that a professional roofing contractor looks for:
- Damage at counter flashing and other metal details
- Gutter and downspout damage from the weight of snow and ice
- Cracks around vent pipes
- Blocked roof vents, gutters, scuppers, drains and downspouts
- Skylight damage
- Compromised roof flashings
Inside your building, you can also check for damage: moist insulation, visible water damage or mold. These are all signs of potential roofing and/or drainage problems.
