You should have a plan in place to prevent damage to your roof starting in the winter. For winter, is your Roof ready? In order to keep your house warm and secure over the winter, you should clear out any fallen leaves and damage as part of your preparations. It is not hard to prepare your house for the winter, but it does take some planning ahead. The roof needs to be inspected and maintained on a regular basis, just like the rest of the house, to ensure that it can endure inclement weather and perform at its best throughout the winter. If you are looking for pre-roof maintenance before winter. Don’t hesitate to give us a call at (336)-937-9673.

Precautions for Winter Pre-roof Maintenance

Remember to follow safety precautions and utilize the following strategies to help protect and prepare your roof for winter.

Clean Debris

Throughout the year, dirt, ducts, and debris build up your roof. Debris includes grass, twigs, seeds, leaves, and small tree branches, among other things. This debris will begin to gather moisture if it is left on top of the roof during the winter months, which will eventually increase the risk of mold, algae, and rotting in your home. Use a broom or an air blower to properly clean up the debris after going up the roof with a ladder.

Clean Your gutters

While gutters are excellent for collecting rainwater from your roof, they may also gradually collect twigs, leaves, and other debris. Your gutters cannot perform their intended purpose if they are not flowing correctly. In addition to putting excessive stress on the edges of your roof, clogged gutters can also lead to water backing up onto your roof and supporting structures.

Are you bored of having to clear your gutters every few months? In order to avoid ever having to clear your gutter again, now is a wonderful time to arrange for EcoShiled Roofing to install gutter guards.

Remove branches from the overhand

Make sure that any branches that are hanging over your roof have been cut off, particularly if there are trees close by or all around your home. Fall leaves can cause a buildup of leaves from branches that fall to the roof, damaging both the roof and the gutters.

Look for signs of water damage in the Attic

After examining your chimney, go up to your attic, as this is often where you will find the earliest indications of a leaky roof. Puddles of water on the attic floor, damp roof decking, and watermarks on the walls are indications of leaks. Make an appointment for a professional roof inspection if you find any indication of water damage to your roofing system. This will allow you to bring your roof back to its best state before the winter storms approach.

Hire professional

A skilled contractor is aware of the specifics of a roof warranty and the kinds of damage that insurance policies will cover. Because they have worked with rodents and other pests in homes before, a professional roofer will know what to look for and how to get rid of these unwanted visitors. They will also be skilled at doing external and interior house inspections to evaluate the roof’s structural integrity.
