Winter Roof Hazards: Understand the Perils and Pitfalls of Cold Weather Challenges

  • One of the most threatening roofing concerns from winter weather is the accumulation of snow and ice on the roof. The weight of heavy snow can strain the structure, leading to potential damage.
  • Ice dams are a common issue that homeowners face in winter. These occur when melting snow refreezes at the roof’s edge, forming a barrier that prevents proper drainage.

  • Cold temperatures can affect roofing materials. Shingles may become brittle and prone to cracking while flashing and seals can lose flexibility. Beeson Construction excels in identifying weathered roofing components and offers timely repairs or replacements. Our experienced team ensures that your roof is resilient against freezing temperatures, thus safeguarding your home from leaks and structural damage.

  • Condensation within the attic space is another concern during winter months. Improper ventilation and insulation can lead to moisture buildup, contributing to mold growth and compromising the roof’s structure over time. Beeson Construction specializes in assessing and enhancing the ventilation and insulation of your attic, creating an environment that minimizes the risk of condensation-related issues.

  • Freezing and thawing cycles can exacerbate roofing problems like small cracks or gaps. Beeson Construction’s commitment to proactive maintenance sets them apart, ensuring that your roof remains resilient throughout winter.
