Are You Worried About The Condition Of The Roof On The New Home?

Who am I kidding, we live in Michigan.. of course you are worried about the condition of your new roof! Rain, high winds, hail, snow, sleet, and ice are all weather issues that could damage your roof by living in Michigan. Michigan’s lovely four seasons are great for changing up the mundane, but bad for the structure of our home’s. But with Trademark Inspection Services, LLC Home Buyers Receive a FREE Roof Leak Protection Plan. We can help you breathe a little easier when buying your new home. 

How Michigan Weather Can Affect Your Roofing and Shingles.

We all know that high winds can affect your roof by the obvious ways of blowing the shingles off your roof and leaving the underlayment exposed which can lead to a leak, but did you know how else Michigan weather can affect your roofing? 

Sleet: Sleet can build up on your roof and cause ice dams, and as the weather warms up, the ice will melt and possibly leak into your attic if there is exposed underlayment. Leaking attics we all know could result in mold. 

Snow: Living in Michigan, we all know how heavy snow can get as it piles up. This is no different on your roofs. As snow piles up on your roof, the weight from the snow can cause the roof to collapse if there are weak spots in the structure of the roof itself.

Hail: Hail impacts on your roofing may not appear until months after a hail storm actually hits your roof. These latent issues may cause early aging of your singles, and might be something most homeowners wouldn’t even think about.

Rain: Heavy rain storms will wear away the shingles overtime and will do so faster in the spots of the roof that are higher, because those are being hit first by the rain. The moisture issues that heavy rain cause will compromise the structural integrity of the roof, and the home over time. 


Different Types of Roofing Material: There are a few kinds of roofing materials that can be used when covering your home. Each material is only made to last so long before it starts to deteriorate. See the diagram courtesy of Gold Key Roofing which shows you roofing materials at a glance.

At your home inspection with Trademark Inspection Services, LLC  your InterNACHI® trained inspector will also help you by giving you a rough estimate of how many more years they think your roof has left of life, as well as any damages that they see in your roof during their inspection.
