All responsible homeowners know that the quality of their roof largely determines how well their home will stand up against the elements in every season. This is especially true during the winter months when arguably your roof takes the most abuse from Mother Nature. If it’s not snow and ice accumulating and freezing, it’s the moisture runoff from the same snow and ice thawing and melting that can cause serious problems if your roof is not adequately prepared. If your roof is not up to the challenge of dealing with winter weather, it can lead to some serious damage occurring, which in turn can lead to costly repairs being necessary.
To be better prepared during these winter months, be vigilant when it comes to spotting these six red flags regarding the condition of your roof. In our experience, these are the most common problems that plague our customers here in New Jersey during the harshest days of the winter season.
