One of the biggest misconceptions in roofing is that roof leaks don’t occur during winter. However, this is not true. Your home’s roof can have a problem at any time during any season. And although most roofing is installed during warmer months of summer and spring that doesn’t mean that your roof can’t have problems during the cold weather of winter. There are some things you can do to ensure your roof is up to the threat of Jack Frost however. In this article we’ll take a deeper look at some things you can do to protect your home during the cold winter in Michigan.
Your roof is far more important than you might think and far more susceptible to quick deterioration. Roofs keep out moisture, pests and keep your home structurally sound. But if something as simple as a cracked or missing shingle goes untreated for a couple weeks or months, you can end up with a severe case of mold, structural damage and even need a full roof replacement. This can become even more devastating during the winter months when there is a foot of snow on your roof and no end in sight.
To keep your roof safe all winter long it is important to take some steps before the snow starts to fall. Snow storms mean freezing rain, hail, and potentially pounds of snow sitting on your roof can all lead to severe damage to your home. To prevent any issues it is important to prep your home and keep up some simple maintenance tasks. Making sure your home’s roof is protected is a must.
