What Causes Ice Damage To Your Roof? We’ve Got You Covered

Living in an area with cold and snowy winters can expose your home to ice damage, especially your roof. How can ice damage your roof? Well it’s simple –  ice can cause significant damage to your roofing system, leading to costly repairs if left unchecked. In this post, we will explore how ice can damage your roof and discuss how Apex General Contracting can help protect your roof from ice damage.

  1. Ice dams

Ice dams are a common problem during winter. They occur when snow on your roof melts and refreezes at the edges, preventing water from properly draining off your roof. This can lead to pooling and potential leaks.

At Apex General Contracting, we can help prevent ice dams by inspecting your roof and ensuring proper insulation and ventilation. We can also install heat cables to melt the snow and ice on your roof’s edges, allowing water to drain properly.

  1. Shingle damage

When water freezes and expands, it can cause shingles to lift, crack or break, leaving your roof vulnerable to leaks and further damage. This can be a significant problem during winter.

To help prevent shingle damage from ice, Apex General Contracting can provide regular roof inspections and repair any damaged or missing shingles before winter sets in. We can also install a waterproof underlayment beneath the shingles to prevent water intrusion.

  1. Gutter damage

Frozen water can cause significant damage to your gutters, leading to potential water damage to your home’s foundation. This can be costly to repair and may result in further problems.

To help prevent gutter damage from ice, we can install gutter guards and ensure your gutters are clean and free of debris. Our team can also provide gutter repair and replacement services to ensure proper water drainage and prevent ice buildup.

In conclusion, Apex General Contracting can help protect your roof from ice damage. By providing regular roof inspections, repairs, and the installation of necessary systems such as heat cables and gutter guards, we can ensure your home stays safe and secure during the winter months. Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your home from ice damage. Contact us today to learn more about our services.
