4 Ways to Protect Your Roof This Winter

Home Improvement

Winter weather may have a certain romance to it, but it brings a few mishaps along with its white flurries of snow and chilly, blue skies. Flus and colds become more common, roads become slippery, andpossibly worst of allice and snow can build up on your roof. It is critical to your roof that you are cautious and informed about its potential risks of damage from ice and snow.

Snow and ice can potentially weigh down your roof, causing holes, cracks, or even cave-ins. Even worse, the snow and ice that is allowed to melt on your roof can cause significant water damage, allowing mold, shingle softening, and brittleness to develop. Winter wonderlands might not be so wonderful after all! Roof damage from snow and ice costs American homeowners millions of dollars a year annually.

While trying to stop the ice and snow from falling is like trying to stop the wind from blowing, you can still make efforts to prevent damage from occurring. Here are 4 ways that you can protect your roof and potentially save thousands of dollars:

  1. First of all, be sure to stay on top of local news and weather alerts. They can let you know well in advance if you should expect snow and ice on your roof. Make this a regular part of your winter. If possible, get Nation Weather Service alerts sent directly to your phone as urgent notifications.
  2. Be aware of your roof's risks of collecting snow and ice buildup. If you have a steep, sloped roof, snow and cold water that can become ice will likely run off rather than build up. Flat and low-slope roofs, however, will need to be monitored for buildup of any kind.  Even the steepest of roofs, though, might have certain architectural features that increase the risk of buildup. Groins in roofs, or areas where two declining slopes meet to form a valley, are perfect for buildup. The same goes for flat sections of exterior walls that rise out of the roof. 
  3. Figure out how much weight your roof can actually support. As a general rule, residential roofs should be built to withstand up to 20 pounds of snow per square foot without being stressed or damaged. Weight in excess of this should be a big concern to you. Typically, 20 pounds of snow is equivalent to about 4 feet of fresh snow, 2 feet of packed or settled snow, and 4 inches of ice. If your roof has missing shingles, cracks, soft spots, or any other damage, then your roof will be less capable of supporting weight. These should be repaired before the snowy season begins.
  4. Here is the most important part of all: have information on roofing experts handy. If you expect heavy snowfall or ice, set an appointment with a roof repair company in Lawrenceville to remove the snow and ice as soon as possible. Snow roof rakes, special tools for removing buildup, can safely remove the excess weight from your roof. In addition to removing the snow and ice that might stress your roof, roofing experts can also evaluate it for damage right away. As with most things, the sooner problems are identified, the cheaper, easier, and faster the repair process will be. Waiting to take care of problems is a recipe for disaster, especially when it comes to your roof.

A dedicated and experienced roof repair company in Lawrenceville will perform several jobs per year, and many of them will likely tell you that ice and snow buildup is among the most damaging and costly things that could happen to your home's roof. Thankfully, these professionals can assist you with preventing a disaster, keeping you warm and dry indoors for the long haul of the winter.
