Sandy, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2019 -- As the premier roofing company in Utah, Stone Summit Roofing understands that winters in the state can be severe, complete with plenty of snow, howling winds, and ice. All of these conditions are enemies of a roof, and can cause significant damage to it. Now, the organization is advising homeowners to be on the lookout for the telltale signs of winter roof damage.
For instance, ice can lead to the worst winter roofing problem that occurs in Utah—leaking from what is known as ice damming. In fact, this is a common problem across the entire region. Not only can it let water into a home, but it will cause significant damage before it's discovered.
Thankfully, there are some simple solutions to this issue. Utilizing heat tape is one such solution, and its effectiveness can be seen around neighborhoods by the distinctive V-shaped snowmelt that it leaves behind. While this is a basic repair, the team at Stone Summit Roofing can help homeowners by providing plenty of professional options for ice damming that are not only more effective, but cost less down the road.
The winds that accompany storms across the region can be strong enough to loosen asphalt shingles and even blow them off the roof. This can cause water leakage inside the home. To avoid this, it's recommended to carefully examine the roof for any missing or damaged shingles.
After a particularly strong storm, it's also a good idea to check the flashing around the home's exterior. These are the metal strips that protect the corners and peaks of a roof, and are around skylights and chimneys. If they are damaged in a storm, they could begin to peel away and cause water to enter the home.
Additionally, while icicles can be beautiful, they can also be dangerous for not only people but roofs as well. As they grow through the warming and cooling process, icicles can be heavy enough to harm roofs and gutters, and even cause ice dams to form. This can result in damages to shingles, blockages to ventilation spaces, and cause other serious issues around the home.
By keeping an eye out for these common problems that can plague a roof in the winter, homeowners can prevent substantial damage to their home and stay warm and protected all year season long.
