We already know the effects of what winter can do for your health, but are you aware of the wear and tear damages a Michigan winter can cause to your home? Whether it’s rain, snow, ice or extremely cold weather, these types of climates can do a number on your roof and gutters. Unfortunately, the winter effect may determine if you need new roof and gutters after the last ice melts.

What Winter Can Do to Your Roof

There are several ways wet and cold weather can ruin your home’s roof. Heavy loads of snow and ice can put a lot of extra weight on your roof. Because packed snow usually weighs more than new snow, this can lead to wear and tear. Snow accumulations can also melt and refreeze, creating ice dams that trap water on the roof, downspouts and gutters. This all can lead to needing roof repair service or replacement.

Here are a few ways to prevent ice dams as winter weather comes and goes leading into spring:

  • Place a cover over your attic hatch
  • Add insulation to your attic floor
  • Seal and insulate your HVAC and exhaust ducts

Hail can cause minor to extreme roof problems, depending on the severity of a hail storm. Sometimes, it’s hard to detect whether it’s hail that’s caused roof damage, however, there are signs, such as leaks, dings and dents, to help you recognize hail damage on shingled or flat roofs.

How to Detect Hail Damage

You may not be able to notice hail damage right away because you’re looking at it from the ground, so getting a closer look is always suggested. Things, such as bruises, missing or fractured shingles is always something to take into consideration while assessing the damage. Hail storms tend to leave small dark spots where the hail knocked off the shingles granules. Although most hail storms are harmless to roofs, you should always be sure to have your roof’s shingles checked out and even, replaced as soon as possible.

Singles react differently when struck by hail. Hail damage to composition and asphalt shingles can appear very different than hail damage to wood shingles. It is crucial to know the different effects of hail damage to properly distinguish whether or not you have roof damage from a hail storm.
