When Snow Melts

When Snow Melts, Check Your Roof!

Roofs take a beating during the winter months. Extreme weather conditions, including temperature changes, can cause roofing shingles and flashing to expand and contract, creating damage. Heavy snow loads and ice dams also take a toll on a roof.  Missing, cracked or damaged shingles may develop into leaks. Home repair experts recommend that homeowners have their roof inspected at least once a year to identify and address problems early, before serious damage is done.

The Metal Roofing Alliance says many homeowners are avoiding this annual spring repair ritual by installing durable and environmentally-friendly metal roofs.  In fact, the MRA says the number of homes with metal roofs has doubled during the past five years.

Think about it — it makes sense. Today’s metal roofing is available in a wide variety of styles and colors to complement any architectural style.  Metal roofs resist cracking, shrinking and mold while standing up to hail, high winds and heavy rains.

These time-tested roofs also save energy and can help to save the environment.  Installing a metal roof can save homeowners up to 40 percent in annual energy costs, depending on the geographical region.  And, the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005 allows for a tax credit for homeowners who install qualified energy-efficient improvements to an existing home, including metal roofs that meet the Energy Star program requirements.  We have 5 colors that qualify for this tax credit.

Most metal roofing systems are made of recycled material. In fact, these investment-grade roofs contain up to 43 percent recycled material, from production to installation to reuse, far superior to traditional asphalt shingles. Often, metal roofs can be installed directly onto an existing asphalt roof, reducing landfill waste associated with tearing off the old roof.

  1. Hi,

    I like your website it it all Wisconsin. We live in the Hayward area and it is hard to find good metal roofers. We looked at the hospital and knew then we wanted Bjorkstrand Metal Roofing for our next roof.

    1. Hi Ann, Thanks for the compliment on the hospital! If your interested in getting a new roof this year, it’s best to book early. As we get further and further booked out as the year goes on.

  2. What a good article but this is the winter that never ends, Die Winter DIE. I am interested in getting an estimate on a metal roof after the snow melts.

  3. Hi, it doesn’t want to quit snowing this year. I have noticed parts of my shingles in the snow on the ground as well as a lot of the rock stuff. Is this normal? Last fall my gutters were full of the rock stuff also and I mean full! Can you give an estimate in the winter? I will call next week anyway.

  4. Your blog is amazing. You write about very interesting things. Thanks for all your tips and information.Keep up the good work. I do enjoy your posts very much.

  5. This web site is really a walk-through for all of the info you wanted about metal roofing in Wisconsin. There are other sights that show a lot of other products but I was looking for METAL! My asphalt roof is getting tore up by “Old man winter”.
    I want a Wisconsin roofer not someone from New England. Wisconsin roofing needs a Wisconsin roof installer, period.

  6. The snow is finally going so I had a look at my crappy asphalt roof. It went from not bad to sh*t in one winter. Now I am finding some shingle pieces in the yard. Guess what they don’t belong to the neighbors house there mine.
