1-800-Rite-Roof: Expert Damage Prevention and Repair in Southeastern WI
Damage prevention and repair: getting the most life out of your roof and home. Maintaining your property is the best way to assure it lasts a long time. There are several things you can do to prevent damage to your roof and home from ice dams and leaks from poor roof drainage. These include keeping your gutters and downspouts free and clear of debris so water can escape before it turns to ice and backs up onto the roof. Another important thing is to make sure leaves, branches and other debris are not sitting on your roof. This can cause ice and snow to be trapped on the roof as it prevents the free flow of water into the eaves troughs and gutters and off of the structure. A pile of leaves on your roof can easily lead to poor roof drainage which can result in leaking and in the winter these wet leaves can freeze and cause a severe roof ice dam. Ice dams can cause damage to your shingles, gutters and even the wood roof deck below the shingles.
Ice dams may also be the result of inadequate ventilation or insulation. Research has shown that up to 90% of homes built before 2000 are not insulated properly. Our experience is that most homes are not vented properly either. When homes are built they are either not designed with proper ventilation or the original builders cut corners and did not install the proper amount of ventilation. There are many instances where kitchen and bathroom vents are exhausting in the attic instead of outside. This moist air from the living space below will certainly condensate and freeze in the attic causing moisture and mold problems. This warming in the attic also contributes to ice dam issues. Having an expert out to your home to inspect your attic and ventilation systems can be integral to solving your ice dam issues. As mentioned above you want your roof and home to be healthy and last a long time.
