Ice And Your Roof

0.6.6_ice-crystal-528534_150Believe it or not, extreme temperatures have a huge effect on your roof. Each presents it’s own dangers, and so it’s important to know about them and prepare your home ahead of time. Here, we’ll go over how cold temperatures, and especially ice, can damage your roof. We’ll also go over prevention measures to keep that from happening.

Ice Damage

Water is one of the few liquids in the world that expands when it freezes. In situations where it rains during the day then temperatures go below freezing at night, this water will have seeped in cracks in your roof and expand, causing damage. 

What to do:

Before the cold weather comes in, make sure your roof is in good shape. Any damage should be repaired before a freeze happens.
