Winter Roof Maintenance

Ice DamsWaiting until winter weather arrives to find out that your roof needs repairs is no picnic. Inspecting your roof and having repairs done now, will eliminate the risk of dealing with leaks, water damage, and having to make repairs during the coldest months of the year.

Ice dams can cause a lot of trouble once snow and ice start building up on the roof. The dams start forming due to ice melting and the run off refreezes to the edges of the roof. This can create leaks and, depending on how strong the structure of the roof is, can cause the roof to collapse.

Check the gutters to make sure they aren’t clogged with leaves and other debris. Letting that stuff sit during the winter time, allows it to freeze, which means water can overflow onto the roof causing water damage.

Have your roof inspected for weak points and worn shingles. Having these repaired now will ensure your roof holds up well all winter long. A professional roof inspector will be able to find even the slightest indication of damage on your roof.
