September Home Maintenance

Winter will be here before you know it and the window to inspect your roof before winter is closing! Your roof is more important during the winter than any other time of the year. In the winter your roof is tasked with withstanding heavy snowstorms, keeping heat inside, and keeping out moisture. Plus, the last thing you want to have to deal with during the holiday season is a costly roofing problem.

Need more convincing? Here are three reasons to get a roof inspection now before the thick of winter:

  1. Avoid Expensive Repairs

Believe it or not, the majority of roof problems that occur in the winter are from summer storms. In the winter the cold weather can cause your roof to contract slightly and case the damage to get worse. In addition, the weight of snow and ice can strain your roof or create more problems and even ice dams. Even if you live in an area that does not receive snow, storm damage will continue to get worse and cause leaks to form. When left unchecked, summer roof damage can put a large amount of strain onto your roof. By getting a roof inspection now you can identify and fix any small issues with your roof before it is tested by winter.

  1. Keep your roof in working condition

Winter is the last time that you want a leak or hole that is going to allow moisture and cold weather into your home. An inspection can ensure that your roof is working efficiently before the severe weather of winter has a chance to test it. In order to keep the inside of your house warm and dry get your roof inspected now.

  1. Roof repairs are easier to get done before temperatures drop

The fall season provides the best conditions for a roof repair. It is best to have roofing work done on a dry day with temperatures above 45 degrees. As the temperatures drop shingles may become fragile and hard to work with. This can cause big problems for your roofer. A roofing inspection can let you know if there is work to be done before the weather makes things difficult – or forces you to wait until spring arrives.
