Keeping Your Roof Safe From Winter Damage

 In Blog

Every conversation about roof maintenance in Colorado is eventually going to boil down to winter weather, and there’s plenty of reason why this is the case. The good news is that in terms of weathering the storm and keeping your home secure, there’s several ways that you can get the job done, and you don’t need to potentially risk harm by getting up on your roof to do it. Here are some key options.

Prepping For Winter Roof DamageOne of the first things you want to do before winter starts is just removing as much clutter as you can from the roof. The reason for this is that on the roof itself, even the smallest piece of debris can mean trouble. Heavy wind can make even smaller objects potentially damage your shingles. Plant matter may potentially draw in pests. Make sure to look at your gutters as well. A gutter is essential for helping minimize damage to your foundation or siding, but only if you clear out any dirt or leaves from the fall first. This also marks a good time for you to try and schedule a professional inspection to look at the shingles on your roof. By replacing any shingles that are broken or potentially missing, you’ll minimize the change of water leaking into your home. This is important because even a smaller leak can cost you thousands in water damage.
