Few things are as essential in life as the roof over your head. Throughout the course of each year, your roof keeps you shielded from scorching sunlight and heavy rain. But during the stormiest times of winter, your roof can take lots of abuse. The following issues are among the top causes of roofing damage in the wintertime.
Melting Ice Buildups
Ice dams are formed by buildups of ice, which prevent melting snow-water from draining properly. This traps the water and often forces it into a home's interior. Ice dams are usually the result of poor insulation, and generally require the help of roof repair specialists. Thankfully ice dams aren’t much of a concern in Ft. Lauderdale, but be on the lookout for ice buildups when visiting family in the snowy Northeast this winter.
Leaking Seam Covers
Another winter problem for many homeowners is flashing leaks, which occur when water slips through the aluminum sheets that cover the seams of a roof. Such leaks can occur anywhere the sheets are applied, such as around the edges of a chimney or sky-window frame. Roof repairs are urgently needed when flashing leaks occur. If you suspect that you're having such a leak, roofers should be contacted right away to inspect the problem.
Moldy Vapor Deposits
When the weather gets cold, homes are also vulnerable to condensation—the vaporous result of warm air colliding with cold surfaces. The mold and mildew that results from condensation can not only degrade your home, but also compromise your family's health. To prevent this from happening, you need to ensure that your house is properly insulated throughout the cold spells of winter months.

It’s easy to take your roof for granted, but if something goes wrong with your roof, you can quickly find yourself facing the need for roof repairs. If you ignore roofing problems, you could be putting your home and your family at risk. The good news is that professional roofers can identify problems with your roof before they become severe and offer effective roof repair options. Here is a look at some of the most common roofing problems homeowners face.
Weather damage can strike your roof at any time of the year. During windy summer storms, shingles may be broken or pulled completely off of your roof. It’s also possible for hail to do severe damage to a roof. During the winter, freezing temperatures can lead to ice buildup that causes the formation of ice dams, which can lead to water damage.
One of the most common roofing problems that strikes homeowners in Florida and beyond is roof leaks. A leaky roof that lets rainwater in can lead to mold growth, structural damage, and other issues for your home. There are a few areas of the roof where leaks are most likely to form; these include the joints along the roof, areas with damaged shingles, and near flashing.
Damage on the Soffit or Fascia
Additional problems homeowners often encounter when dealing with roof trouble include damage along the soffit, or the underside of overhanging areas, and damage on the fascia, which is the area between the edge of the roof and the gutters. Water damage and pest damage are the most common issues that strike these areas of the roof, and are especially common when gutters are not cleaned on a regular basis.

If you’re getting ready to update an older home by re-roofing it, choosing your new roofing material is one of the most important tasks you face. Different roofing options have different levels of durability and vastly different looks, so it’s essential to evaluate your home and your family’s needs before settling on an option. Consult with your roofing company for recommendations about the right roof for you, and consider the following steps for choosing a new roof.
Consider the Weather
The weather in your area can have a major impact on how well your roof holds up over the years. Metal roofing, for example, holds up well in many types of weather, including sunny, rainy, and windy situations. However, metal roofing can be damaged by hail, so if you live in an area where hail is likely to occur, this may not be the best option for you. On the other hand, impact-resistant shingles can withstand rain, heat, and hail damage, but may not hold up well in high winds. Ask your local roofer which types of roofing are recommended for homes in your area.
Your home’s roof is one of the most important components of its overall style, so be sure to consider the aesthetic impact that different types of roofing can have on your home. In addition to choosing a roof that will meet your design goals for your home, take a look at other homes in your neighborhood. While you do not have to choose the same type of roofing that your neighbors have, it can be helpful to choose a new roof material that fits in with the overall style of your neighborhood.
Factor in Cost and Durability
When you are shopping for new roofing materials, you’ll find that they vary greatly in price. It’s essential to take your current budget into account when choosing a new roof, but it’s also important to consider your future finances. Different roofing materials offer varying levels of durability, and the warranties attached to these materials may also differ greatly. Be sure to consider the expected lifespan of the roofing material you choose and how that will factor into your finances in the future. It’s also important to note that the roofing material you select can have an impact on your home’s value.
