Keeping your residential roofing intact and undamaged during harsh winter weather can be difficult. Cold weather and heavy snow can cause wear and tear on your roof more quickly than it would otherwise experience. Fortunately, there are several different ways to help your residential roof withstand the winter without too much damage.
- Before the winter gets too harsh, unclogging your gutters is a great way to prevent unwanted damage. Clogged gutters can quickly cause leaks and prevent proper drainage, so cleaning excess debris and leaves from your gutters is a great way to avoid serious leaks in your roof.
- Trim any overhanging branches. If you have trees near your house and notice some limbs hang over your roof, cutting or trimming these branches can keep them from becoming a hazard during winter. Freezing weather and harsh winds can easily dislodge fragile branches, which can then fall onto your roof and cause serious damage.
- Make any necessary small repairs. If you have some shingles that are missing or otherwise damaged, making a small repair can help you avoid more serious repairs in the near future. For repairs you aren’t sure how to handle, it is often better to let a professional roofing team take care of the problem for you.
