Frost is a common sight during winter. You might need to scrape the frost away from your walkways and from your car. However, what should you do about the frost on the roof? Should you even do anything? In today’s article, DryTech Roofing, the top roofing company in our area, explains everything you need to know about frost on your roof.
Is Frost on a Roof Good or Bad?
Well that depends. Your roof is made to withstand all sorts of weather conditions, including cold temperatures, snow and frost. If your roof is regularly maintained, then you won’t need to worry about water damage during winter. Frost can be a good sign that your attic is well insulated. An insulated attic doesn’t transfer heat upwards towards the roof. This is a good thing because melted snow and frost on the roof can form ice dams.
What Should I Do If My Roof Has No Frost?
If your roof doesn’t have frost on it and everyone else on your street does, then don’t worry just yet. You need to check a few things first. Check if your home gets the same amount of sun exposure as theirs. Your neighbor’s roof might be blocked from sunlight because they have tall trees, for example. However, if your roof doesn’t have frost and everyone else receives the same amount of sunlight then you should call us. As one of the top roofing companies in the area, we can figure out if your roof lacks insulation.
Why Attic Insulation Is Important
Attic insulation is incredibly important. Adding insulation to your attic can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you money on your energy bill. As we explained earlier, proper attic insulation can also prevent ice dams and water damage to your home. If your home doesn’t have frost and you are experiencing high energy bills and constantly changing indoor temperature then your attic might lack insulation.
