You Need to Know: Ice Dams and Other Winter Troubles

There are many dangers to your roof that hide behind layers of snow. These dangers are easy to brush aside and ignore because they remain relatively unnoticed until spring rolls around. Want to check your residential roofing in Surrey & nearby areas for possible issues brought by winter?

Watch out for these hidden troubles:

Ice Dams

These form when higher parts of the roof are above 32 degrees and the lower parts are below 32 degrees. The difference in temperatures causes ice to form in near the edge of your roof while water collects above it unfrozen. With nowhere to go, this water slips through any space it can—between roofing tile, in the smallest of cracks, etc. While a lot of people enjoy the view of ice dams and icicles, these are roofing problems hiding in plain sight.

Plugged Roof Vents

Another hidden—or often unnoticed—danger is when ice or snow clogs up crucial roof vents. This is due to their location and exposure. They might be ideal during warmer months for regulation of in-house temperatures, but during cold months, they can also halt circulation and ventilation when clogged up by snow.

Snow Caking

Even more subtle is the simple fact that letting snow accumulate on your roof is a huge hazard in itself. For many of us, we grew up with the mindset that snow is soft and fluffy—how else could we have grand snowball fights without anyone losing an eye? That’s why even when it accumulates to a great degree, we never readily associate it with trouble—but we should. Heavy snow can cause anything from damage to strain on the struts and supports of the roof.

At Crown Residential Roofing, we do residential roof replacement in Vancouver right. But we also like to help our customers save up on costs and expenses. We offer full inspections so you can repair what you can before things need replacing. With over 100 years of experience, you can certainly count on us. Give us a call today.

No Time Like Now: Importance of Post-Winter Roof Inspection

There is no other season where your New Westminster roofing endures more of a battering than during those cold winter months. Just the cold temperatures combined with the weight of ice and snow are usually enough to put a strain on even the best roofs. So, when the cold gives way to the relative warmth of spring, and the snow and ice clears, it’s best to jump at the chance to conduct much delayed inspections—better still if done by a professional.
