Snow & Ice Roof Leak Repair in NJ

Winter Weather Causing Roof Damage & Leaks?

Serving Bergen County, Essex County & Morris County in NJ

roof leak repair njNortherners are no stranger to the damage that winter weather can cause to their roof. From leaks to complete collapses, snow and ice can have serious and expensive consequences for NJ residents. Thankfully roof collapses due to snow and ice build up is rare but excessive snow accumulation on a roof manifests itself in more subtle ways and causes gradual damage over time instead of a sudden calamity.

Removing heavy snow and ice can prevent costly damage to your roof but most homeowners and commercial building owners don't take action until some damage has already occurred. Typically this is due to noticeable wall, ceiling and window leaks as a result of snow and ice dam accumulation.

If you see water staining at an exterior wall or ceiling where there is snow on the roof above it, act quickly to avoid extensive damage.

Don't wait until your roof damage gets worse, call in the experts at Homestead Roofing today!

How Does Snow & Ice Cause Water Damage & Leaks

It's not shocking that snow and ice on a roof can lead to water damage to your home. Interior heat from the house melts the snow on the roof which is then trapped and creates an ice dam on the roof, gutters and downsprouts. The water then takes the path of least resistance under the roof system, or sideways and through flashings which were not designed to handle this type of moisture. As a result, interior water damage can occur.

How to Prevent Roof Leaks Caused by Snow & Ice

The best way to to prevent roof damage is by clearing the snow from your roof so it can not lead to structural damage, drywall cracking and ice dams. However, one way that people damage their roof is by removing the snow and ice on their own. Scraping snow off your roof can damage the roof and take years off your roof's life. This is why it is important to hire professional roofers to take care of snow and ice removal for your home or commercial building.

When it comes to ice in gutters and downspouts it is extremely difficult to remove without causing roof damage or gutter damage. This is why it is important to make sure your guttesrs are cleaned regularly to reduce the risk of them getting clogged with ice. In some cases, the gutter system may even be removed from the roof to prevent ice damage.
