We had a relatively harsh winter this year. While the cold season has all but ended, it might have damaged your roof. An inspection might prove necessary. Snow, ice, and hail all have dangerous consequences for your roof. We’ve made a quick overview of how each one causes damage.
Hail’s danger to your roof should seem obvious. Once it gets big enough, it can dent or puncture it. This damage will compound over time if you don’t take care of it. Texas will occasionally get big hail storms.
It may seem benign, but it can weaken your roof’s structure. When snow falls in high winds, it stacks more in places that suddenly rise. Because of this, a few inches can turn into a couple feet in those places. The weight of all this can strain your roof.
The danger of ice comes into play when rain falls right before temperatures drop below freezing. The rain water gets into the nooks and crannies of your roof, and then expands when it freezes. This can affect any part of your building.
Now that you know how this winter might have affected your roof, an inspection might prove wise. If you need commercial repairs or maintenance in Fort Worth, DK Haney Roofing can help. For more information, you can reach us at (866) 379-4846.
