The Effects of Winter Weather on Your North Texas Roof System

The Effects of Winter Weather on Your North Texas Roof System
Though our new year has started with predictably unpredictable North Texas weather, the frigid air hasn’t completely left us for the season. North Texas is predicted to have some bitter cold days in the coming month. So how do these rapid changes in weather affect your roof system?

Your roof is designed to protect your home from Mother Nature, including rain, sleet, cold temperatures, rapid changes in temperatures, etc. But, it is also crucial to maintain your roof if you want your roof to have a long lifespan.

Cold weather can leave homeowners with some unpleasant residue, if proper roof maintenance is not completed. From your gutters, to the flashing, to the eaves, and even the shingles, these parts of the roof are especially susceptible to damage during ice and snow storms. So take advantage of the random sunny days we get to inspect your roof. Clean out your gutters, check the seals around the flashing, check your eaves to make sure there is accumulated snow, leaves, debris, or other materials that can cause too much pressure on the roof structure.

This will help prepare for the icy weather we often get during winter.

When winter weather arrives, there’s not much you can do. But it’s good to understand how cold weather can affect your roof system. Falling ice can affect the integrity of lower parts of your roof. Deterioration can occur on walls that are covered in ice for a long period of time. Gutters that fill with ice dams are more likely to leak and collapse.

Though these problems are rare for the mild winters we experience in North Texas, knowing where to look when inspecting your roof after winter storms can help you spot issues before they grow into massive problems.

However, we want to make sure that homeowners are safe during inspections. If it’s still icy outside, it’s too soon to grab your ladder. If you sense a problem, call a professional to inspect your roof, clean your roof, or make any repairs. With years of experience, our contractors are able to help you using the latest innovations.

Avoid winter weather roofing problems altogether by making sure the slope of your roof allows for water and snow to naturally slide off the roof easily. If your roof system is not designed like this, consider investing in professional help to have your roof slopes altered.

Finally, always invest in high quality material. The manufacturers we work with at Joe Hall Roofing provide superior roofing materials for North Texas homes to keep your roof system safe and sound for many, many years to come. When you maintain your roof, winter is much less of a threat to your roof system.

The Arlington Chinese Church is just one of our clients who had unique requirements for their building. They were experiencing numerous leaks due to premature aging of their roof. With granular loss and seams pulling apart, we assessed the situation during our consultation and were able to provide them with an innovative solution to preserve the life of their roof system.

On the Arlington Chinese Church project, we used an ER Systems asphalt roof restoration system. We power washed the entire roof, repaired fish mouths and cracks in the existing roof system, applied sealant to protrusions, vent stacks, and seams, then finished out the roof with an Eraguard 500 acrylic roof coating.

This solution was discussed and decided upon to ensure that the churches roof system lasted for many years to come. At Joe Hall Roofing, our goal isn’t to complete one job. Our job is to get your roof to a state of proper function for a long lifetime of worry-free use.

Hanging Christmas Lights Without Damaging Your Roof System

Hanging Christmas Lights Without Damaging Your Roof System
Driving around looking at Christmas lights has always been one of my most favorite traditions during Christmastime. Hanging Christmas lights, however, is not my favorite. It’s one of those tasks that I feel an obligation to fulfill for fellow Christmas lights enthusiasts.

But, how does hanging these gorgeous displays affect your roof system? Here are some helpful tips to keep your roof in perfect condition during the most wonderful time of the year.

Your roof system is designed for maximum durability to withstand the weight of snow and wind during one of our unpredictable North Texas storms, but how does it hold up against the weight of Christmas lights?

Proper application is key to hanging Christmas lights. If you follow the directions and properly install your Christmas lights, you shouldn’t see any damage to your roof system. My number one tip is to not put holes in your roof.

The thought seems logical, but when you’re fighting Christmas light clips and you’re feeling frustrated, you might feel the urge to get the staple gun and go to town. No matter how bad you want that quick fix, do not do it.

Putting holes in your roof system can lead to a serious amount of damage. Avoid the staple gun, nail gun, screw gun, and any other type of tool that will put a hole in your shingles. Once removed, the hole opens up your roof system to water intrusion, which can rot your roof and lead to more serious damage.

Next tip, be careful!

I know, obvious tip. But, when you’re trying to win the award for best Christmas lights display, you might start losing focus on your safety. Walking on your roof isn’t just dangerous to you, it can decrease the lifespan of your roof. The best way to apply Christmas lights is to use a ladder and hang them using those amazing little Christmas light clips.

If, however, you have to walk on your roof, wear soft shoes. Don’t walk on shingles when the roof is being hit directly by the sun. And, of course, walk gently.

Whether you’re hanging lights or having someone do it for you, make sure you keep your roof system in mind. Don’t let anyone puncture your shingles. Use plastic clips and be careful!
