A Checklist For Winterizing Your Roof

Winterizing your roof is an important precaution for homeowners to take. It is better to be prepared than to be surprised with a leak or high energy costs in the winter. Here are some tips to help you get ahead this winter:

Make sure to conduct a thorough inspection of your roof before the winter comes so you don’t get hit with any surprises.
Check your gutters and clean them out if need be to help prevent ice dams.
Clear away any tree limbs hanging over you roof. These could break off after a snow or ice storm and cause unnecessary damage to your roof.
Inspect your attic for areas where light or air are leaking in from your roof. If you spot any problems, make sure to have the repair done by the time winter rolls around or you could be looking at thousands of dollars in damage.
When you’re in your attic, keep an eye out for pests of animals. The cold weather can drive them inside to warm up, and they can cause a lot of damage to your home.
