Winter is here. And it’s best to be prepared for the of harsh cold and snow coming our way. Even more so, it’s still important to properly prepare your roof for the season.
With that being said, here are our top tips for preparing your roof for winter:
Clean the Gutters
Leaves have been slowly falling from the trees around your house for the past couple months. And while the falling leaves are certainly beautiful, they can do a lot of damage to your roof if you forget to clean them out of the gutters. Clogged gutters cause water to build up and overflow onto your roof, which in turn can cause costly water damage to your roof. So be sure to clean the gutters
Locate Any Leaks
While you’re checking out the gutters, pay attention to any potential water leaks. It’s always a good idea to stay on the lookout for leaks, as they are much easier – and less expensive – to fix if you can catch them early on. But this is especially important during the changing seasons. Be sure to keep an eye out for pesky leaks and get them taken care of before they become a bigger issue.
Be Aware of Ice and Snow
When ice and snow build up on a roof over time, both can cause significant – and costly – damage to the roof . So, if we do happen to experience an extensive snow storm, don’t forget to check the roof once it’s finished and clear away anything that has piled up.
