When winter rolls around, the last thing you want to have to worry about is your roof. It gets cold very fast in Texas so you will want to have your roof ready just in case. There are a few things that you can do to put your mind at ease and prepare your roof for the weather that it is about to endure.
Clean your gutters- This is a quick way to make sure that you don’t get any roof damage from your gutters pulling along your roof line. Carefully climb on a latter and check all around your gutters to make sure that leaves and branches haven’t been collecting inside of them. This can weigh them down and begin to pull at your roof, damaging your gutters and your roof. This will help prepare your roof against more damage as well.
Clear everything- This can be difficult and dangerous so if you don’t feel comfortable climbing onto your roof, you can call a professional to do it for you. Make sure that your roof is clear of all branches and leaves. If there were branches and leaves up there, inspect to make that that they did not leave any mold or damaging spots to your roof. This will ensure that no further damage is done to your roof.
Call an inspector- This should be done from time to time anyway, but there is no better time to do it than right before winter begins. This will ensure that your roof is in the most pristine condition, and if it is not, the inspector may even be able to have it fixed that day depending on the size of the problem. You will get a detailed report of everything and be able to make an educated decision on how you want to move forward to prepare your roof.
