3 Common Roof Issues Caused by Winter Weather

Although the winter season is still going on and doesn’t look to be ending anytime soon, there are many issues that can affect your roof the time of year. As we start the new year, homeowners are advised to keep an eye out for any of these warning signs that the winter has done quite a number on your roof.

As the top roofing company in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs, we here at Union Roofing are proud to help homeowners survive the winter weather warm and cozy indoors. Whether it means inspecting your roof, repairing any damaged areas, or giving tips out to homeowners in the area, our team of contractors is here to help property owners all across the area.

Keeping an eye out for these issues can help prevent smaller issues turning into bigger, costly jobs.


One of the easiest ways to spot an issue with your roof is to pay attention to leaks and other signs of water damage. Ice, attic frost, and condensation from your exhausts can all lead to creating a drip or leak in your home. If you come across a leak or other water damage in your home this winter, give our team a call as soon as possible. Getting out in front of leaks can help prevent costly repairs.

Heavy Snow

We all get hit hard with snowstorms each winter. However, depending on the location of your home, snow can lay on top of your roof for a very long time if your home is covered in any shade. Leaks, sagging tiles and cracking noises can all be the result of snow that still hasn’t melted off of your roof. The heavy weight of the snow can even lead to cracks and bends in the foundation of your home.

Ice Dam

Since they are next-to-impossible to detect from the ground, an ice dam can be very dangerous for your roof. Following a snowstorm, the snow that melts can leave a small collection of water in any bends or level areas. The leftover water can easily freeze the next time temperatures drop. If you suspect your roof may have an ice dam formed, give us a call.
