Ice damming occurs when snow on the roof melts because attic temperatures are above 32 degrees. As this melted snow drips down over the roof, it naturally refreezes if the outside temperature is below freezing. Repetition of this melt-freeze cycle creates an “ice-dam” that forces water to pool and develop into large “ponds”. During warmer temperatures, this excessive puddling will leak into walls or attic and possibly damage areas that are already compromised.
Blizzards, Minnesota thunderstorms, are famous for producing damaging hail that can erode shingles and diminish your roof’s ability to shed water. Tree branches and flying debris propelled by strong winds may rub and scrape against shingles forcefully enough to loosen them.
Roofing professionals of Minnesota are well aware of what to look for in regards to weather-related damage during an inspection of your roof. Maintaining your roof so it’s in the best shape possible all year long will help you avoid expensive roof repairs as well as costly interior water damage.
