Your Roof May Have Taken a Beating This Past Winter

Posted on May 26, 2016 in Roofing Installation

While you and your family spent this past winter all warm and cozy inside your home, your roof was outside facing the brunt of the season. Each year, winter takes a toll on your roof, and this past one was particularly brutal. Between frigid temperatures, cold winds, and precipitation like snow and sleet, this winter may have been the last for your roof and you may want to consider a roof replacement.

Ice Buildup

Ice buildup is one of the worst winter consequences for a roofing system. When ice builds up in your gutters and at the edges of your roof, it can prevent rain and snow from draining properly. When this happens, the excess water can soak your shingles and not only cause water damage, but it can also work its way into your home and cause water damage to your ceilings, walls, and more. Severe water damage can compromise the integrity of your roof and your best option is a roof replacement.

Mold/Mildew

This past winter was full of precipitation, and if your roof doesn’t drain it properly or you have cracked or curled shingles, it can trap water. Over time, trapped water can lead to mold and mildew and if left untreated, it can affect you and your family’s health. If your roof is compromised by mold and mildew, talk to our New Jersey roofing company experts today. We can inspect it and determine whether you need a replacement.

Damaged Shingles

Strong winds and airborne debris can both cause your shingles to crack, break, or may even dismantle them altogether. If this happens to a large enough section of your roof, it will jeopardize its structural stability and could lead to bigger problems. Let our roofing specialists take a look at your damaged shingles and we’ll let you know the extent of your problem.

Old Age

If your roof is simply at the end of its lifespan, putting off a roofing replacement is the last thing you want to do. Your roof is what protects your home and everything in it, so schedule your roofing consultation before the heat of the summer begins. Give us a call today.
