Winter Roof Preparation Tips

- Thursday, November 11, 2010

Once a year you need a thorough roof inspectionNow is the perfect time to do this before winter sets in.  Doing a little maintenance now while the weather is still pleasant will help keep your roof in top condition and get it ready to handle the winter cold.

First you need to clear your gutters of accumulated leaves and other debris.  If you have lots of trees, make sure to keep your gutters clear throughout the fall.  If leaves are left to accumulate in the gutters, they clog your downspouts and hold moisture which promotes wood rot, mold and mildew.

While you are up there cleaning the gutters (ONLY if you can do this safely)  take a look at the general condition of your roof.  Look for any tree limbs that may have grown over the summer and are now hanging over the roof.  Trim back any limbs that are touching the roof or hanging close to the roof.  Once ice and snow accumulates on these limbs, they can start dragging on the roof. When the Fall and Winter winds blow, any tree limbs brushing against the roof will damage your shingles.

Do a thorough visual inspection of the condition of the roof.  Look for cracked, broken, or missing shingles. Call us to replace any cracked, broken, missing or damage shingles to avoid further damage to your roof.  Left unattended, water will intrude into cracked shingles, and under and around broken and missing shingles.  The water will expand when it freezes, causing further damage to your roof.
