With winter quickly approaching, now is the time to prepare your roof for the conditions ahead. To help ensure you’re ready, we’ve compiled a checklist for winterizing your roof.
Professional Roof Inspection
The best way to ensure your roof can withstand strong winter conditions is to have it inspected prior to snowfall. Our professional roofers can come out to your home or business and inspect your roof and attic for damage such as leaks, wood rotting, and loose or missing shingles.
Repair Any Damages
After inspecting your roof, it’s important to repair any of the reported damages. If left defective through winter, your home can become susceptible to major, costly damages. Winter hail and snow is tough on roofing structures. Roof maintenance can better protect your roof and home from unnecessary damage.
Clean Out Your Gutters
Clean gutters allow a path for melting snow to flow off a roof. If your gutters are filled with debris, snow is unable to melt away from your home, and can often lead to the formation of ice dams. These ice formations can cause significant water damage to your roof and even begin to deteriorate the sides of your home. To prevent this from happening, we suggest having your gutters cleaned before winter comes to clean out any fallen leaves and extra debris that may have gotten trapped this fall.
Schedule Your Roofing Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance includes care such as roof inspections, cleaning and repair. Scheduling your preventative maintenance this fall can allow you peace of mind that your roof is ready to take on the winter conditions ahead. Our roofing experts are ready to take on all of your roofing needs this fall to ensure your roof, home, and family are protected.
