Winter’s War on Roofs

Today many roofing collapses can be caused by heavy amounts of snow accumulation on any type of roof. One cubic foot of dry snow weighs about 8 pounds, while packed snow and/or ice can weigh even more. Other forms of precipitation can compound the problem if moisture from rain or sleet has been absorbed into the roof. Flat roofs and lower sloped roofs tend to be at greater risk because they will accumulate larger amounts of precipitation.

Major warning signs should be addressed immediately by contacting your local roofer. Those signs include:

    • Sinking sections of exterior shingles or interior ceiling
    • Severe/repeated leakage
    • Cracks in the exterior masonry
    • Bends, ripples or deformities in the roof supports, framing or structure
    • Sprinkler heads that have dropped below ceiling tiles
    • Doors or windows that are difficult to open or pop open on their own
    • Bent or bowed utility pipes or conduits at ceiling

Should you notice any of these conditions, contact Jasper Roofing for a free inspection.

Tips for Assessing Roofing Damage

This is the time of year where home owners see heavy snow, ice and biting winds which can do significant damage to roofs. Instead of waiting until the unfortunate happens, we suggest being proactive and making sure everything is in order. Here are some things to consider when assessing your roof.

  • Start the inspection in the interior of the home. Before breaking out the ladder and climbing up to the roof, inspect the home’s interior, pinpointing potential problems that may indicate roof damage

  • Inspect the roof outside. Grab a set of binoculars and inspect the exterior of the roof. Look at for cracked caulk or rust spots on flashing, shingles that are buckling, curling, or blistering.

  • If you spot any missing or broken shingles, it might be a good idea to get on the roof and check to see if the roof is compromised in any way.

  • A winter roof inspection can protect homeowners and their families from the elements and reduce the likelihood of potentially costly repairs down the road. For an expert opinion contact us for your free roof inspection today!
