What to look for when preparing your roof for a New England winter –

The professionals at Performance Roofing, Inc. know that winter can be hard on your roof, especially in our New Hampshire and Maine region. Freezing winds and temperatures are just part of the problem. Make sure you are one step ahead of the weather and take some time to inspect your roof for the following issues:

• Loose or damaged flashing or shingles. Condensation and ice dams can create huge difficulties for you. Damaged roofing can lead to condensation build up in your attic, leaving you with a dangerous mold problem.

Water stains on your ceiling. These can be caused by ice dams forming and penetrating under shingles.

 

• Make sure that your gutters, as well as the valleys of the roof, are free and clear of any debris, such as leaves and twigs.

 

• Improper or inadequate attic ventilation. . If your attic is not adequately ventilated it can overheat. Ventilation problems could also void any warranty on your shingles, leading to a loss of coverage for insurance claims.

• A view from above. Some problems can only be detected from the top of the roof. It is a good idea to consult with your roofing expert and arrange for a professional inspection.

 

Left unattended, these problems can cause not only cosmetic damage but severe health problems as well.

Finally, you may want to consider replacing your asphalt roof with a metal roof. In addition to its ultimate cost saving value, a metal roof is virtually maintenance free and could be the last roof you will ever need! Call the experts at Performance Roofing, Inc. for peace of mind before you settle into that long winter’s nap!
