The Risk of a Faulty Roof in Winter

 Does your home feel drafty? 

Are you worried about the high cost of heating this winter?

There are a few risks when going into the winter with unmanaged roof damage: 

Flashing Leaks: Due to both ice and other winter weather conditions, your home’s vents and chimneys are vulnerable to damage. 

Condensation: Condensation is caused by the warm interior air meeting the cold underside of a roof exposed to winter temperatures. This can lead to a musty smell along with mold growth and mildew. 

Strong Winds: Strong winds can pull up or peel back shingles which leads to moisture in the roof vents.

Add "Roof Inspection" to Your Spring Cleaning To-Do List

Spring is a great time to inspect your roof for damage. If your roof is newer it might not need any repairs, but the one thing all Michigan roofs do need is a spring inspection. Winter storms and the freeze/thaw cycle can damage your roof and leave behind debris that can clog gutters. Finding and repairing roof damage early, before it can damage the structure underneath, can save you money later. 

A thorough roof inspection includes the inside of your house as well as the outside. Roof damage can ultimately worsen to the point that it also damages the structure it’s meant to protect. Regular inspections can catch many problems early before the damage gets into the house.

Spring Cleaning Your Roof

Spring is just around the corner! Are you ready? Warmer temperatures, spring flowers, and lower heating bills – what’s not to like?

While the warmer temperatures and lower heating bills are welcome, the spring thaw can also mean spring cleaning and maintenance. Storms, snow load, and ice dams may have damaged your roof over the winter, so don’t forget to add “inspect the roof” to your to-do list. You might just save yourself from needing to add “roof repair” to you to-do list later!

What Does the Freeze/Thaw Cycle do to Your Roof?

Mild winter weather may seem harmless to your roof but can actually damage it. When snow or rainwater on your roof freezes before it can run off, the ice can damage roofing materials. During a mild winter, water on the roof can freeze and thaw over and over. This can eventually damage the roofing materials or separate flashing from around the chimneys, ducts, and vents. That kind of damage can lead to leaks. In harsher winters, it can lead to ice dams. 

The freeze/thaw cycle is just one reason it’s important to inspect your roof for cracks and other existing damage before the temperatures drop. If your roof already has cracks, they will get worse with every freeze/thaw cycle.

If your roof has damage, if it’s old, or if you’re just not sure about its condition, it’s not too late to call Roofman for an inspection. We can inspect, repair, and even replace your roof year-round, even in winter!
