Now that winter has officially arrived, are you worried about your roofing? In northern climates, snow can add as much as 60 pounds of weight per cubic foot to a roof, but do we need to be concerned about our roofing in Atlanta? Well, yes. For one thing, we’re not immune to snow and ice. More importantly, our roofs are not necessarily constructed with harsh winter conditions in mind.
It only makes sense. In a region known for heavy snowfall, roofs are designed to handle the frigid temperatures and the weight of all that snow. Similarly, in the tropics, roofing material that can withstand extreme heat and the corrosion of salty air is a better idea. When you’re talking about roofing in Atlanta, you’re not preparing for either of those extremes. Unfortunately, the weather sometimes surprises us. Cold weather, and especially snow and ice, can warp your trusses and rafters, cause leaks and drafts, and put a real strain on the heating system.
If you’re worried about roof repair now, we don’t need to tell you that you should have had a roof inspection back in the fall. Each year, as the temperatures begin to cool, it’s a good idea to have a professional roof inspection, to make sure there is no deterioration or damage that will necessitate roof repairs before winter sets in. Of course, that advice is moot now that we’re in the thick of winter, but it’s a good practice to remember for next year.
Snow on the roof can cause problems, but it’s not as difficult to remove as you might think. Just removing snow from the eaves and the valleys of the roof can allow passage of the water from melting snow higher up. Of course, you may want to call in a professional, as it can be dangerous to work on a roof in icy conditions. Because of this danger, when there is a problem that requires roof repairs during the winter months, it’s vital that you call in a professional roofing company.
