Sleet occurs when the cloud temperature is warm enough to create rain but the air temperature is cold enough to freeze it as it falls. Frozen raindrops or small ice pellets form as a result. They aren’t as solid as hail but more like a slush that falls down in clumps. This type of precipitation can build up on your roof and in your gutters.
While it melts faster than hail, it can still cause various issues to your roof. It can cause water-related issues to your interior and exterior when water penetrates the roof. Sleet can also result in shingle curling and damage to your windows. When any of these issues happen, make sure to contact a professional immediately. Keep in mind that delaying roof repairs can lead to problems that are more expensive to fix. Whether you need reliable roofing or deck contractors, you can count on TH Remodeling & Renovations.
Even minor hailstorms can significantly damage your roof. Experts say that hailstones bigger than three centimeters cause the worst damage. Signs of hail damage are often subtle, which makes them easy to miss. This is why it’s important to get a roof inspection following a hail storm. Even a small shingle granule loss can compromise the integrity of your roof.
