Preparing Your Roof for the Winter

Damaged roof

Now that Fall is near, homeowners need to start thinking about preparing their roof for winter. A lot can happen over the spring and summer months with weather damaging and rot, so it is best to get a full roof inspection done as soon as possible to avoid costly damage and repairs later on.

If your roof is found to be damaged, there are many ways High Quality Contracting can address the situation. We can repair or replace your roof prior to the winter snow heading your way.

Things you should check on your roof to see if you need a repair or replacement are: 

  • Missing shingles
  • Damaged or missing gutter systems
  • Wood rot and holes
  • Damage from rodents such as squirrels
  • Shingles that have cracked curled or frayed edges
  • Damaged flashing around vents, chimney, or skylights
  • Leaks into the attack insulation
  • Low or damaged roofing insulation

 

Your roof is what keeps your home safe from the elements. If it is damaged or leaking, winter snow and cold air can enter your home and your heat will go right out the roof top. You can also have dangerous ice damns build up from insulation issues.
