With winter fast approaching, it brings with it snow, ice, and new problems to watch out for. There are a few things you can do to prevent damage and even bigger problems for your roof down the line.
- Attic condensation: This can cause the wood on your roof to rot. To help prevent this from happening, there are some things you can do: make sure bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans as well as dryer vents do not discharge into the attic, they should be discharged outside. Also keep your attic cold, make sure your attic is properly insulated to allow enough heat to escape so you don’t get condensation and build up of snow.
- Clear your gutters: Making sure your gutters are not clogged can help make sure there is no build up of snow, ice or water which can damage your roof and even your gutters themselves. We offer a seasonal cleaning package so you don’t have to do the work.
- Spring inspection: In the spring it is a good idea to inspect your roof for small spots of damage that can lead to big problems later.
