3 Ways Winter Weather Can Damage Your Home & Roof

Winter Roofs

South Carolina weather doesn’t seem like a concern when it comes to the state of your home and roof. Even in our mild climate, however, winter weather can lead to serious damage. Take a look at three ways weather can affect your roof this winter.

#1: The Temperatures

Between the heat and humidity in the summer and the cold weather in the winter, your roof can take a beating. The change in temperature can cause the shingles to expand and contract, leading to cracking and loosening.

#2: The Moisture

Moisture can cause some of the worst roof damage. Rain, sleet, snow, and ice can all work their way into small cracks and holes in your roof. The moisture not only messes with your roof material, but it can cause significant water damage inside your home.

#3: The Ice

Even with moderate temperatures in the coldest months, we still get ice in South Carolina. Ice can lead to ice dams, which are blocks in your gutters, causing water to back up and leak into your home. It can also build up on gutters and eaves, leading to sagging and breakage. And ice can work its way under your roof tiles, shingles, and siding, leading to loosening and lifting.

Your roof protects your biggest and most important assets – your home and your family. Don’t let the winter weather weaken or damage your roof or home. For an inspection to find out if you have any issues with your roof, shingles, flashing, or siding, contact the experts at Premiere Roofing today.

 

Is Your Roof Ready for Santa?

Is Your Roof Ready for Santa?The holidays are here, and scheduling a roof inspection is probably the last thing on your priority list. But is your roof ready to protect your home and family this Christmas? Here’s how to tell if your roof is ready for Santa.

What Could Be Wrong?

During the winter months, roof damage can happen without you even knowing. Whether from rain, snow, ice, or simply the age of your roof, even minor damage can lead to major issues. Cracked shingles, broken gutters, loose flashing, and pooling water are the most common roof issues in South Carolina.

The Damage You Could Face

In addition to a compromised roof, damage can lead to other issues as well. The biggest concern is water problems from a leak that develops from the damage. If water gets into your home through cracks in your roof or space where shingles or flashing have pulled away, it can be catastrophic.

What You Can Do

The best way to ensure your roof is intact and in good shape is with a roof inspection. But don’t think this is something that’s a simple DIY project. A professional roofer has the knowledge and expertise to assess your roof and determine if there’s any damage that requires repair.

Will your roof be ready when the jingle bells get near, and Santa’s sleigh is coming in for a landing? Don’t take any chances or face unpleasant consequences from roof damage during the holidays. Contact the pros at Premiere Roofing to schedule a roof inspection before you deck the halls.
