Iowa winters can wreak havoc on your home’s roof. When heavy snow falls on your roof, it can cause a lot of damage. It can lead to collapse or leaking. The winter can also cause freeze-ups and ice damming. All of these conditions can cause damage to your Iowa home’s roof. Brincks Exteriors are local experts for all types of storm damage including those types of damage caused by winter storms.
Another issue is nearby tree branches falling onto your home’s roof due to the snow weighing them down. Excessive ice and snow speed up the aging process of your roof by putting pressure on it and causing water damage. Heat collects in the attic and warms the roof, except in the eaves and areas where there is no attic. This causes melted snow and ice backs up and flows under the shingles and into the home, leading to leakage.
Signs of Roof Damage in Iowa
There are some obvious and subtle indications that your roof has been damaged. Some of these signs are:

You can also prepare your roof before the harsh Iowa winters come. Check air leaks and inadequate insulation in your attic or crawlspaces. Also, check loose or missing shingles before the snow comes. Look for cracks in flashing or tar and examine the chimney vents and skylights. Also, make sure to clean out your gutters on a regular basis. Removing snow from your roof can also cause damage to your roof if you don’t have the proper tools.
