It's Never a Good Idea to Wait for Spring Before Addressing the Issues

Winter can be especially harsh on a house's roof, and it’s almost never a good idea to simply wait for spring before addressing the issues that the presence of snow and ice on your roof can cause. Five of the main winter roof damage problems that homeowners should be aware of are listed below, along with some advice on how to best manage them.


1. Ice Dam Formation

When warm air rises from your heated living spaces, it warms the shingles of your roof and the snow that covers it. This leads to snow melting and dripping down to the colder edges of the roo...

Do You Need a New Roof?

You might assume you don't need to think about installing a new roof until the old one starts leaking, but if you wait that long it will be more expensive. Why? Because by the time you notice the leak, the structural damage will have already occurred.

Here are some tips to help decide whether the time has come to install a new roof:

• How old is the existing roof? If installed properly and with good materials, an asphalt shingle roof should last 20 to 25 years, sometimes longer. It also depends on how many shingle layers you have and if it was properly ventilated. If you've lived there for many years and don't know when the roof was last replaced, consider having a roof inspection.
