NH Roofing: Winter Warning In Effect

“You’re lucky to have a roof over your head!”

As a property owner, you’re well too familiar with this saying. However, you probably already recognize the importance of the statement as well.

Keeping a watchful eye during the winter

Ice Dams

In New England, there are two critical elements to keep an eye on during the winter season – proper attic ventilation and the buildup of ice dams. Ice dams occur when the heat in your home gathers and rises to the top middle section of your roof. The snow and ice above then melt, falling to the edges of your roofing. Here, the elements can then refreeze, blocking the path of gutter and soffits. Eventually, you’ll be faced with a buildup that allows ice to form within the cracks of the home’s roof and walls. If left unattended, expensive structural damage may occur.

 

Proper ventilation

The second element every property owner should keep an eye on is attic ventilation. A poorly ventilated attic allows moisture to build, compromising the integrity of your structure. Furthermore, poor ventilation also compromises the air quality within your home. While moisture enters in combination with poor ventilation, your attic becomes the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew growth. As we know, long-term exposure to mold and mildew often has adverse health effects.
