As a fellow Ashland roofer, we’ve learned the only consistent thing about our weather is that it’s inconsistent. As an Ashland resident, you are probably well versed and familiar with our unpredictable weather patterns. This year, it feels like we went from summer to winter in a matter of weeks and we had temperatures drop from 70° quickly down to 45°and now hovering around 30° daily. The town of Ashland recently released their Winter Advisory report and our Winter Parking Ban is in full effect!
Today, December 18th, in Ashland, we’ve had wind gusts reach up 50 mph and with speeds that high it can make weathered roofing shingles buckle and lift causing an opening for water to penetrate. Coupled the high winds with some rain, well you’ve got a recipe for roof leaks to occur.
We highly recommend keeping an eye on your roof for any loose or lifted shingles and use your best judgment for if it’s worth getting a professional to diagnose the condition of your roof. If you are experiencing any leaks in your home, our team of professionally trained and certified technicians can get on top of your roof and diagnose the source of your leaks.
We offer Ashland roof inspection packages to ensure your roof is in optimal condition to handle the upcoming winter weather. Even this week, it’s been forecasted to reach freezing temperatures and warm up again enough for rain to take place. If your roof is 15-20+ years old, it may be well worth your while to sign up for our hassle-free, no pressure estimates to replace your roof. This will help
This freeze to thaw cycle mixed with rain and wind, generally speaking, can cause leaks to creep into homes. We know because we’re still receiving an incredible amount of calls in December.
