How To Prepare For Roofing Issues In Cold Weather

Winter Roofing Challenges

Winter brings many roofing challenges like ice dams, snow accumulation, and the freeze-thaw-cycle.  Proactive maintenance is the best way to prevent roofing issues in cold weather. Follow our tips below to help create a strong and safe home.

01. Maintain  Your Gutters

Think of your gutters as the highway for water, leading it away from your house. Regular cleaning is the solution – removing debris ensures that rain or snow water can move without unexpected jams.


02. Improve Insulation And Ventilation

A good ventilation system also ensures proper airflow and moisture control. Insulate walls, attic, and floor, and seal any sources of air leaks for better overall insulation and ventilation.


03. Complete Repairs

Don't wait until it's too late.! Make sure to take care of those minor repairs before they become massive issues. Call the pros to help you find the problem and the appropriate solutions!


04. Prepare For Snow

Now that you know what issues cold weather can bring to your roof, it’s time to be prepared for it. When you see snow accumulating, use a long-handled roof rake to clear it early, preventing buildup and relieving roof stress.
