In the early days of January, Connecticut has found itself deep in severe cold weather outbreaks. As we are in the middle of the winter months, snow and ice highlight our days and nights, with the temperatures steadily plummeting. In fact, state government has already launched a precautionary measure against this freezing weather by activating the state’s severe weather protocol. As reported by NBC Connecticut, Gov. Dannel Malloy urges “anyone in need of shelter to call 2-1-1 and encourage local communities to consider opening warming centers or other facilities to assist people in need.”
In this kind of weather, our home is subjected to extreme conditions. The part most susceptible to damage is certainly our roof as it protects us not just from the cold, but from heavy snowfall as well. In addition, the many freezing and thawing cycles of winter can certainly wreak havoc on our roofs. In very cold temperatures, water freezes into ice when it gets trapped in holes or cracks. The ice then expands. With the expansion of ice comes the expansion of the material around it. When it gets warmer, the ice thaws. The resulting accumulated water will refreeze and expand again, which means the holes and cracks will get bigger too. Needless to say, the existing damage to your roof will worsen with these cycles.
