With the end of summer behind us, fall is officially here. With that in mind, it is important to make sure your home is ready for the colder weather ahead. Strong winds, snow and heavy rain can do a lot of damage to a roof that hasn’t been inspected or maintained in quite some time. We here at Union Roofing, the top roofing contractors serving Atlantic City, NJ, and other nearby areas, can help make sure your home or business is ready for the grueling, winter weather.
Aside from reaching out to our team of professionals, there are many ways homeowners can maintain their roof on their own. Stay out in front of any roofing issues this winter by following these easy tips.
Inspect Your Roof
One of the easiest ways to detect is a problem is to always keep a watchful eye on your roof. If you start to notice your roof sagging, even just a little, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Newer roofs will be able to handle the heaviest of snowfalls without a problem, but anyone with an older roof should keep an eye out in their attic for any leaks or signs of water damage.
Clean Your Gutters
Before snow starts to hit our area, you’re going to want to make sure gutters are free of any debris or clogs. As snow melts on top of your roof following a storm, your gutters are going to be flooded with runoff water. Any leaves or other debris in your gutter will prevent the water from flowing off your roof properly. Clogged water in your gutter can freeze when temperatures dip and cause damage to your home.
Stay Off Your Roof
Even if it’s just to remove snow, we recommend always staying off of your roof unless absolutely necessary. Not only can you cause damage to your roof, but you slip and hurt yourself. Instead, give us a call. We’re happy to inspect your roof in a safe and controlled manner.
Before winter arrives, it is important to have your roof inspected by a professional roofing company.
