What roofing type is right for your home?

Figuring out what type of roofing system belongs on your home should be considered by the weather and climate you live in. Your roof goes under a lot of seasons that are filled with unexpected weather at times. Sometimes that unexpected weather can have a major effect on your home.


When serious weather hits, you’ll want to have a secured roofing system on your home.

Caution: Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can build up and form at the edge of your roof. When snow builds up on your roof, the snow underneath will start to melt from the heat your house is creating. This meltwater will then run down to the eaves, and because eaves tend to be the coldest point on the roof, it freezes. Once this happens, meltwater will continue to run down the roof, and the ice will continue to grow due to the initial ice that froze in the eave of the roof. As the meltwater continues to drip with nowhere to go, a water backup will occur.

Standing water and your roof are never a happy mix. If you see this happening contact us right away for a free inspection.
