The Effects of Weather on Your Roof

Winter Weather

Low temperatures and snowfall are the ideal formula for ice damming. Ice damming happens when the heat from the inside of your home melts the snow on your roof. As the snow runs down your roof and goes into your gutters, it can refreeze and begin to develop. Ice dams ordinarily build up at your eaves and in the valleys of your roof. As the ice dam develops your roof loses its water-shedding capacity and water can back up and goes inside your house. On the off chance if rake is available, an extraordinary method for forestalling ice damming is to rake the snow off 3-6 feet up from the eave. If you foster significant ice damming, call an expert who offers high-pressure steam removal. This is the most ideal way to eliminate ice dams and forestall damage to your roof system.

April showers bring May Flowers, however they likewise bring roof leaks. Shingled roof frameworks by design are not waterproof, yet rather are water-safe, meaning they are expected to shed water. As your roof ages, it can lose its water-shedding capacity as sealants, embellishments, and different changes in the roof framework start to make it vulnerable.Dark colored spots on the ceiling are commonly indicated as a roofing issue and should not be disregarded.

Not only that but little breaks when left untreated can transform into major expensive fixes, or even require replacement. Try not to overlook even the smallest roof leak!

Summer Weather

With numerous lakes in the State, a ton of us can be observed spending mid-year days and evenings enjoying the water and warm climate. The somewhat high temperatures that go with Winnipeg Summers combined with the moderately enormous temperature swings, can be hard on your roof. As the roof ages, the UV inhibitors in the roof framework start to deteriorate. When a roof starts losing its UV stability, hot summer sun and high temperature lead to extension and compression and thermal breaking (Cracks in the Shingles). Also, as the shingle loses its UV stability the granule cement releases and your roof will start to lose granules. Granule loss is the #1 marker that your roof is approaching the end of its helpful life.

Wind can and will break shingle seals, brush off shingles, and in some cases impact the primary integrity of your roof system.
