Benefits of Doing Your Roof in the Winter

January 28, 2019

In winter, storms, snow and ice build ups, high winds, and temperatures can be tough on roofs. A lot of home owners believe winter is not the time to do your roof, but in retrospect, it can have many benefits and possibly save you from future home repairs.

 

Waiting for warmer weather can worsen existing problems

 

In the warmer seasons you may have noticed your roof had  issues  like missing, curled or cracked shingles. Unfortunately, you did not have a new roof installed or repaired before winter. If your thinking about waiting until spring, that may not be the answer. 

 

The freeze and thaw, and build up of ice and snow can intensify these issues. Winter  may in fact be the catalyst  to cause your roof to fail and damage your home.

 

A new roof is your best defense

 

If your roof was on its last legs coming into winter and your worried about spring, the time is now. Nothing can replace installing a new roof and repairing any sheeting or flashing problems before spring.  The snow and ice buildup will melt and saturate your roof  causing an increased likelihood of a leak.

 

An alternative to replacing your entire roof may be to do a temporary repair on heavily effected areas to get you through the winter months.

 

Things to watch out for in the winter

 

- Icicle formation

- Ice dam formation

- Attic Condensation

- Leaks

- Snow build ups/Snow load

- Cracks appearing on interior walls

- Interior doors jamming or rubbing against the         frame

- Conspicuous creaking noises

- Warping or buckling of a ceiling
