The 4 Things You Need to Do to Prepare Your Roof for Winter
Tradition Roofing and Exteriors announces the four key areas of your roof to prepare for winter weather.
Every year when the snow starts to fall roof contractors will begin to receive phone calls from homeowners reporting leaking roofs. Much of this damage could be avoided by properly preparing your roof in Fall for the impending snow. Roofing in MN must be prepared to withstand sleet, hail, wind and heavy snow. Tradition Roofing and Exteriors is releasing a report on 4 must address areas on your roof before the cold weather hits.
Clear your gutters. Built up debris in gutters will lead to ice dams. Ice dams will lead to possible structural damage, and water running into your home.
Roof debris is another common culprit. A walk through of your roof so branches resting in your valleys and roof lines can stop winter damage.
Roof contractors know the importance of roof ventilation. Air circulation through your attic and roof will prevent ice and snow from building to dangerous levels, and cut down your heating bill. Roofing companies are your best resource if you suspect your ventilation is in need of repair, or if your home is not properly ventilated.
The number one reason for roof leaking is failing flashing. Flashing protects your home from water by providing a seal around vents, chimneys, piping, and your home’s perimeter.
Scott Landa, President of Tradition Roofing and Exteriors, says, “Your roof stands up to harsh weather all year round. Flashing can rip or loosen during heavy winds or the previous winters hail and snow. It is important to have someone who knows what they are looking for inspect your roof. We have seen it save homeowners from potential big damage, which would have come with a big price tag!”
