Ways to Prevent Snow and Ice Roof Damage

In areas where snow and ice formation are a concern, homeowners need to take extra measures to ensure that their roofing system won't succumb to the cold weather. Hiring roofers to assess the area can help prevent untimely replacement. Find out how you can protect your roof this winter.

Ways to Prevent Snow and Ice Roof Damage

Inspect Your Roof

Do not attempt to inspect your roofing system without professional assistance. Do-it-yourself roofing activities at this time of the year can only put your safety at risk. Instead, get in touch with a reputable roofing company to do this task for you. Since they have the proper knowledge and tools to get the job done, rest assured they can restore the former glory of your roofing system.

Estimate the Load Your Roof Can Support

Most residential roofing systems can handle up to 20 pounds per square foot of snow before they begin to be overloaded, regardless of the location. Check with your building department to learn if higher loads were used at the time of your home's construction.

Remove Snow and Ice From Your Roof

Knowing your roof's load capacity can help you identify when it's time to remove the excess snow and ice on the system. This task, however, should be done by pros to guarantee your safety. Repair Damage Do not wait until the end of winter to fix any roof damage. Postponing repairs can only hasten the decay of your roof and wreak havoc on your property. Focus on critical components, such as flashings, gutters and shingles, to avoid moisture and water damage. Small leaks shouldn't also be neglected and must be prioritized.
