Winterizing Your Roof

If this winter brings challenges like last winter, we need to be better prepared! If you are getting your home ready for winter, it is important to make sure that your roof is also prepared. Your roof is the first line of defense between your home and the unpredictable Texas winter. Below are steps to winterizing your roof and protecting your home through the winter. 

Check for Inside Damage

First step is to check the inside of your home. Water stains on the ceiling can indicate leaks in your roof. By checking indoors, you can detect leaks or other damage that is coming from the roof. Identifying these issues early can help prevent added problems in your home. The attic is another area that needs to be checked as part of winterizing your roof. It’s important to ensure that the attic has proper ventilation. 

Clean Your Gutters

Before winter hits you need to clean your gutters of all the fall leaves! If your gutters are full of debris, melting ice or even snow, your gutters won’t drain properly and cause problems for your roof and home. While you are checking your gutters, make sure there are no branches hanging over your roof.

Some damage can be seen from the ground, but you won’t be able to see everything. Getting a closer look will help you spot minor damage or weak spots. The professionals at WeatherShield Roofing and Sheetmetal can help you spot these damages and get them fixed before winter hits.
