Signs to look for this winter that your roof needs attention
Winter is a great time of year to easily spot problems with your buildings that may be costing you a lot of money and causing more damages. Often, many of these issues can be corrected easily once you know what they are.
Here are a few signs to look for that are an indication you should call for a roof and attic inspection:
1. Icicles—Although they may seem natural in the cold, winter months, they are created when heat is escaping your building. Not only does this mean heat loss and money loss, it can result in ice damming and expensive damages on the interior of your home.
2. Bare spots on your snowy roof—
If your neighbors’ roofs are snow covered and yours is not, you are spending a lot of money to heat the outdoors! Ledegar Roofing will not only inspect your roof, but we also inspect attic spaces for proper insulation, ventilation and venting…all important in making your roof last longer and your home be energy efficient.
3. Frost or icicles in your attic—Frost and ice is simply moisture that has frozen. And, moisture has no business being in your attic space. There are a number of reasons that this could be happening and the experts at Ledegar will investigate to find the problem areas.
4. Lifting shingles or tiles —Winter can be rough on the exterior of your home and your roof usually gets the brunt of it. Take a look at your roof now or in the spring to see if there are areas that need repair.
