When winter rolls around we get excited about the first snowfall, and the drop from the hot humid weather, but winter can be brutal on your roof. Without proper care and preparation every year, you could be putting your roof in serious danger for roof damage, and setting yourself up for more cost than you’d like. It is important to invest in your roof because it is the one major thing that keeps the weather off of you. There are a few small things that can be done to make sure that the integrity of your roof lasts winter and winter.
Tips to Protect You from Roof Damage
- When there is easy rainfall, it can wash things like leaves and branches on your roof where you may forget about them for long periods of time. It is important that you clean these off, or hire a professional to come clean your roof before major snowfall happens. The more weight that is on your roof, the more likely it is that something will go wrong.
- When water freezes inside of your gutters it can cause ice damming. This can cause serious roof damage.
- Always keep an eye out for missing roof shingles or ones that may be damaged or are coming off. It is an easy fix to repair or replace a few singles, but if you wait and don’t fix the problem, you may end up needing an entirely new roof which can cost a lot of money, and also may not be able to be done easily in the winter time.
When winter is upon us, it is important that you pay attention to your roof, and call out a professional to repair any roof damage. This will give you peace of mind and let you know that the job will be done right, by trained and licensed professionals. Call us today for an appointment.
