Here in Omaha, the leaves are soon to begin to change colors and fall to the ground, Fall is approaching quickly but before it does, is your roof ready for the wintery weather.

You should have your roof inspected twice a year to make sure is it ready for the extreme weather changes that will have in the coming months. Weathershield Roofing can perform a 24-point inspection before the weather take a turn.
One of the most common reasons your roof leaks in the winter is because of ice dams. If you are unsure what an ice dam is, it is when your attic temperature is above freezing, this causes your shingles to heat up and melt the snow. Once the water reaches the cooler eves it will freeze again, as the roof heats up more and the cycle continues causing more and more water to pool. The pools of water may then back up into your shingles leaking into your attic, down exterior walls causing damage to your insulation, paint, floors, and valuables that may be below.
