A mild winter doesn't mean your roof is safe from weather damage.

SALINE, Mich. - Michimich -- Roofman warns that mild Michigan winters create a weather cycle that can damage roofing materials. Snow load and ice dams are not the only cause of winter weather damage. Milder winters with temperature extremes, like Southeast Michigan is experiencing this winter, create a freeze/thaw cycle that can cause serious damage to a roof.

When it rains or when snow melts, water runs down into the seams and cracks in a roof. When the temperature drops and that water freezes, it expands, widening those seams or cracks slightly. It might melt again on the next sunny day, and then freeze again that night. During a mild winter like this one, that freeze/thaw cycle can happen over and over. Each time it happens, it can damage a roof a bit more.

This can eventually damage the roofing materials or separate flashing from the chimneys, ducts, and vents. That can lead to leaks. In harsher winters, it can lead to ice dams. The freeze/thaw cycle is just one reason it's important to inspect roofing materials for cracks and other existing damage before the temperatures drop. If a roof already has cracks, they will get worse with every freeze/thaw cycle.
