5 Most Common Winter Roof Repair and Replacement Requests

Posted on December 30, 2018 by Anderson Industrial Roofing

Although roof repair seems to be a spring or summer job, there are several repair and replacement jobs that keep roofers busy in during the cooler times of the year. If you are in need of a roof installation or experience specific roofing issues, it may be time to consider a winter roofing contract.

1. Snow and Hail Damage

Even though Dallas doesn’t typically see large amounts of snow and hail, sometimes we can have quite the “Snowmageddon.” During seasons that are especially frigid, your roof has the potential to suffer from excess weight from snow and hail. This weight can be a lot for your system to handle and can quickly lead to dangerous cracks and buckling.

2. Flashing Repair

Your roof’s flashing is what keeps your roof waterproof. During the winter, damage to your flashing can lead to serious problems. Failing to have your roof inspected and ignoring any flashing repairs can lead to major leaks that can create a health hazard for a family or workplace.

3. Shingle Damage

The most common winter roof repair focuses on your shingles. Asphalt shingles are extremely flexible and winter weather conditions can easily create problems that compromise their usefulness.
Shingle roof repairs are easy to correct, so if you notice any issues with your shingles, save yourself the headache and get in touch with a roofer today. Some shingle issues to look out for include:

  • Cracked shingles
  • Lifting shingles
  • Loose shingles
  • Missing shingles

4. Animal Issues

Winter weather can make your rooftop and attic a safe haven for unwanted furry friends. Even though you may have a soft spot for animals, wild rodents can cause substantial roof damage. Their nesting can allow moisture to seep into your home and can also create a health hazard from animal droppings.
Although we can help you repair your roof damage, if you do have four-legged home invaders, a call to animal control is also in order.

5. Metal Roof Installation

Should you need an actual roof installation completed for your structure, go with a metal roof! These types of roofs are perfect for colder climates because they won’t crack under pressure. For a roof that is secure throughout the year, it’s easy to see why a metal roof is the consumer’s choice.
