Winter Roof Problems

During the winter months, winter weather is always a threat. It can affect electrical power, road conditions, and visibility drastically. This weather can also have a significant impact on your roof. Following the wild winter weather Oklahoma had this past winter, here are a few things you can look out for next winter so you can keep your roof in good shape.

Heavy snow can cause significant damage to your roof. As the snow piles up, so does the weight. This causes a lot of stress on your roof and over the course of the winter, it can weaken your roof.

One of the best ways to control damage from heavy snow is to purchase a roof rake. These are long poles with a “blade” attached to the end, so you can pull snow off your roof from the ground. In the case of heavy snow, roof rakes work wonders for removing snow from your roof.

Ice dams can also pose a significant threat to your roof. This happens when the snow or ice on your roof melts and refreezes before it can finish draining off the roof. The refreezing of the water causes a buildup of ice and retains water on the roof, which means the only place the water can escape is into the shingles, through the shingles, or into the house itself. Ice dams are tough to control and can be dangerous to remove on your own, so it is best to contact a professional.

If you have any other questions regarding snow/ice removal or are concerned about roof damage caused by winter weather, please contact our office at 918-600-9565.
