Confronting Winter Roof Damage

Winter is a tough time of year for your roof.  The snow, hail, ice, sleet, wind, and rain that often occur in winter can wreak havoc on your roof, damaging your investment in your home, damage you may not see until the first thaw.  How can you determine if your room has suffered under the harsh conditions of winter?  Look for the signs of winter roof damage.


Leaks in the ceiling or in the attic are a sign that the roof has suffered damage that is allowing water to enter your home.  It’s imperative that a professional be consulted before further damage can occur.  Attic condensation can also be a warning sign that damage has occurred and should not be ignored.  

Blistering or Peeling Exterior Paint

Sometimes leading water isn’t evident from within the house, but if you notice the exterior paint is peeling or blistering, it can be a sign of water damage occurring.

Stains, Mold, and/or Mildew

If you notice stains on your ceiling or mold and mildew on your walls or ceilings, it may be a sign your roof is allowing moisture to enter your home.  In addition, moss or algae forming on the exterior can be a sign of roof damage.

Exterior Condition of the Roof

Once the snow melts, inspect your roof for cracked or missing shingles.  They are both clear signs your roof has suffered some damage over the winter months.

Higher Energy Costs

If your electricity or natural gas costs experience a sudden increase, it could be a sign that your roof damage is reducing the energy efficiency of your home.
