How to Prepare Your Roof for Winter

The cold weather is fast approaching and you need to check your roof for any possible concerns or problems.

Walk around your home with a critical eye.  Do you see lifted shingles, holes where the neighborhood critters are trying to build a winter home?  Are there nail holes in your metal trim where moisture can get in and freeze leading to wood rot?  Are you trying to put off til spring what should be done this fall?

Make sure your gutter and downspouts are free of debris.  Run a hose in the gutter and downspouts to flush out the accumulated debris of the previous season.

Keep all valleys cleared of debris all year long. The accumulation of debris in your valleys shortens the life of the shingle and leads to leaking and wood rot.

This could happen to your home.
