Signs That You Need to Replace Your Roof For Winter

Winter can be harsh on our homes, and our roofs are no exception. As the temperatures drop and the snow begins to fall, it's essential to give some extra care and attention to your asphalt roof. At Cedar Ridge Roofing, we understand the importance of protecting your investment and ensuring the longevity of your roof.

Remove Snow Promptly

Heavy snow can add significant weight to your roof, potentially causing structural damage. Using a roof rake or enlisting the help of professionals, ensure that you regularly clear off accumulated snow. Pay special attention to areas near gutters, valleys, and chimneys, as these are common trouble spots where snow can accumulate and create potential issues.

Prevent Ice Dams

Preventing ice dams is crucial to maintaining the health and integrity of your asphalt roof during the winter months. Ice dams can form when melting snow refreezes at the edge of your roof, creating a barrier that prevents proper drainage and potentially leads to water leakage. 

Check for Damage

Winter weather conditions can expose pre-existing issues or cause damage to your roof. Take the time to inspect your roof for cracked or missing shingles, damaged flashing, or signs of water infiltration such as stains or leaks. Addressing these issues promptly is essential to prevent further damage to your asphalt roof.

Schedule Professional Inspections

To ensure the long-term health and durability of your asphalt roof, it's highly recommended to schedule professional inspections before and after winter. Hiring experienced roofers to inspect your roof can provide peace of mind and help detect any potential issues early on.
