Rosemeyer Roofing Explains What Weather Does to Your Roof

Rain on the Roof Rosemeyer Roofing

Your roof forms a vital barrier between your home and the elements. A roof protects your home from rain, wind, hail, and snow. A quality residential or commercial roof installation from Rosemeyer Roofing should protect the building for a couple of decades. In today’s blog, the roofing specialists at Rosemeyer Roofing explain what weather does to your roof.


Normal wind conditions don’t affect roof shingles. Most asphalt shingles are rated to 150 mph when correctly installed. Any wind damage to your roof likely comes from a lack of adhesion to the rest of the roof. Wind damage on your roof is hard to spot because you may not see any creases in your roof. The age of the roof is also a factor when it comes to wind damage. Older roofs are more susceptible to wind damage than new ones. Rosemeyer Roofing recommends roof repair for a newer roof that has wind damage, or a complete replacement for an older roof with wind damage.

The layer of tar paper adheres to roofing shingles underneath the shingles. When this underlayment gets warm, it forms a tighter seal against rain. A properly installed roof from Rosemeyer Roofing keeps rain completely out of your attic or upper rooms. Overlapping asphalt shingles, metal roofing, or roofing tiles all work effectively to keep moisture away from your home.

Ice and Snow

Ice and snow both affect your roof in the winter. Several inches of wintry precipitation could accumulate on your dwelling. When accumulated ice and snow start to melt, the water should readily move down your roof to the gutters. The waterproof underlayment that keeps rain out of your home also works against ice and snow. Ice dams frequently cause roof damage, even with a properly installed roof. Melting snow that re-freezes can create cracks in the roof layers. These cracks lead to water leaks. Rosemeyer Roofing can repair small leaks or holes in your roof to prevent any further damage to the interior.
