Steps for Winter Roof Preparedness
- Inspection: The cornerstone of roof readiness is a thorough inspection. Look for signs of wear, damaged or missing shingles, and potential leak areas. Absolute Construction offers free inspections to evaluate your roofing condition.
- Cleaning Gutters and Downspouts: Ensuring that gutters and downspouts are clear of debris prevents ice dams and water buildup, which are common culprits of winter roof damage.
- Repairing Existing Damage: Addressing minor damages before winter is essential. This includes fixing leaks, replacing broken shingles, and ensuring flashing is intact. Absolute Construction’s roof repair services cater to both minor fixes and major overhauls.
- Checking Insulation and Ventilation: Adequate attic insulation and ventilation prevent heat loss and mitigate ice dam formation, which can be detrimental to roof integrity.
- Trimming Trees: Overhanging branches can break under the weight of snow and ice, posing a risk to your roof. Trimming them back is a proactive measure to prevent damage.
- Preparing for Heavy Snowfall: In areas with heavy snowfall, consider installing snow guards and planning for snow removal to prevent excessive load on your roof.
