Common Roof Failures in the Tahoe Area

1) Ice Dams — When the bottom edge of a roof freezes, it causes a solid block of ice to form, creating a dam behind it which backs up and freezes as well. These dams can move like a glacier down your roof to tear out shingles, destroy valleys and rip up metal roofing. As water backs up, it may cause leaks inside your home.

2) Snow Load — Snow saturated with water can weigh up to 300 pounds per square foot. This weight on your roof will cause damage to shingles and warping of wood.

3) Wind — High winds in the mountains can break seal tabs, resulting in uplift and possibly tearing shingles off of your roof.

4) Sun exposure — High altitudes mean that there is more UV light damage to shingles, reducing their oils and causing granular loss, aging them faster.

This causes shingles to lose their flexibility, which leads to cracking.
