Things Ruining Your Roof

Because it provides protection from extreme weather conditions like rain, sun, and snow, the roof is essential. It is common for people to ignore the maintenance of a roof or roofing material until damage starts to appear. Reggie Reed Roofing lists five things that can damage your roof.

Snow, Hail, and Ice

Most roofs and roofing materials are vulnerable to rain and moisture. This is especially true if the roof is made from metal. Intense rain can also destroy the protective layer in asphalt shingles roofing materials. The roof’s appearance is also affected by the intense rain.

Roofs take the most damage during winter and are therefore more expensive to maintain. The roof’s surface may become ice and snowy during winter. An internal heater might be necessary to melt the ice and remove it. The shingles roofing material may deform due to the constant cycle of freezing and thawing.

Ice dams, which are formed from frequent freezing and thawing, can block the drainage system as well as the gutters of your plumbing system. Further damage can be caused by ice dams that leak into the ceiling. Contact Reggie Reed Roofing if you see any roof damage.

Moss and Lichen

Moisture is favorable for the growth of lichen or moss. Rainwater can cause roof damage and then lichen or moss growth. The roof’s woody areas are most vulnerable. Reggie Reed Roofing can help you if you see lichen or moss growth.


Over time, the sun can cause gradual fading of the color of roofs. Colored roofs will fade due to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Shingles are especially at risk. Reggie Reed Roofing is a specialist in sun-damaged roofs.


Sometimes, an overgrown or diseased tree can fall onto a roof, causing damage that may require a replacement roof. Other times, leaves and dried-up branches can fall on a roof and cause damage that warrants a roof replacement. This causes gutters to clog and increases mold growth. Roofing contractors recommend regular cleaning of the roof. This will ensure a long-lasting roof. It is also recommended to inspect and trim trees and bushes around your home.


Strong winds can cause roofs to fall. A roof can be ripped off by wind from the edges, where there is little support for the main structure. Leakage or unevenness in roofing will indicate that your roof is in danger if you live in a windy region.
