If the winter weather has taken a toll on your roof, get help from the professional roofers in New Orleans,

Nearly all Louisanaians have experienced our cold and wet winters. They might be comparatively mild but—like clockwork every year—a severe winter storm blows through the state and wrecks havoc on your roof. 

Regardless of where you live in the state, you’re more than likely going to experience at least one severe winter weather event. The most damaging of the types of severe winter weather in Louisiana are ice storms. These storms can cause hail, sleet, and frozen buildup, which are all highly damaging to your roof. Educate yourself on the effects of winter weather on your roof, so you’re prepared to minimize the damage.

Hail

It’s important to know how hail affects your roof so you can manage the damage after it happens. Hailstorms occur in south Louisiana on a regular basis—and without notice. During a hailstorm, hail hits your roof and causes an indentation, weakening the integrity of the shingle. Over time, the protective coating washes away, exposing the shingle. After the shingle is exposed to the elements it weakens. This weakened shingle allows in water and cold air, risking your home’s interior. 

These storms can cause irreversible damage to your asphalt roof. That can leave you with only one option: replacing your roof. After a hailstorm, it’s vital for a roofer to inspect for damages. Overlooked hail damage can end up costing you a fortune in the long run. Fortunately, Ryson Roofing offers free inspections, so if you are in the area, we can send out a roofer to you in New Orleans right away.

Sleet And Ice Buildup

Sleet is usually much smaller than hail, so the immediate damage to your home isn’t as apparent. Don’t be fooled though: if a significant amount of sleet has time to build up, the damage could be even more devastating. Sleet buildup can warp the shape of your roof to the point where shingles become loose or dislodged. 

Once a shingle is loose, it loses its ability to keep out water. This issue can compound quickly and cause multiple leaks.  If you’ve had a buildup of ice or sleet on your roof it’s crucial to get in contact with a local roofing company to get an inspection. If you’re looking for a roofer in New Orleans, Ryson roofing can give you a free, no-obligation roof inspection.
