Winter’s harsh natural elements and weather conditions can leave your roof stripped and damaged. Because your roof plays a critical role in protecting your home from deterioration, you should take the time to ensure your it is in proper condition after the winter months. There are several reasons why you should have your roof professionally inspected during the spring after the snow and ice have melted away.
● Ice Dam Damage
When melting snow or running water freezes on your roof, ice dams may begin to develop. Ice dams continue to grow and eventually may even require professional attention to remove them from your home.
When left untreated, ice dams can weigh down your roof’s fascia and cause it to collapse and break. When the fascia and gutters break off of your roof, you’ll need to repair the area as quickly as possible to prevent your home’s foundation from water damage and deterioration.
● Wind Damage
When blizzards sweep through your neighborhood, high winds may leave your roof’s integrity compromised. Missing and broken shingles are often indications of wind damage, however, the damage can be difficult to see from the ground.
When spring finally arrives, schedule a professional inspection as soon as possible. Certified contractors can help you pinpoint any wind damage on your roof and provide you with a fast, and long-lasting solution capable of protecting your home.
● Damage From Heavy Snow
When snow accumulates on your roof, it can cause your shingles to crack and your roof’s surface to weaken. However, once the snow has melted it can be difficult to know whether your roof has suffered severe damage before it’s too late. If you want to be sure that the heavy snowfall didn’t impact your roof’s stability, schedule a professional roof inspection.
