5 Roofer Tips to Avoid a Nightmare before Christmas:

  1. Roof Inspection & Shingle Repairs: Have a trusted, local roofer come out to inspect your roof for any loose or faulty shingles. Finding weak areas outside before they work their way inside can save you from have to do more costly repairs. It’s worth the investment!
  2. A Sagging Roof is a Danger Sign: A roof that is bowed and sagging is a HUGE indication that the integrity of your roof is compromised. Going into the winter months, where heavy snow, freezing rain and hail could easily make it’s way inside your home is NOT a good bet. Call a reputable local roofing contractor for a free estimate today!
  3. Gutter and Down Spout Maintenance: Before the freeze sets in and after all the leaves have dropped is the optimal time to clean out and fix any leaks or loose attachments on your home’s gutters and down spouts. Make sure your down spouts are strategically pointed away from your home’s foundation. Also steer them away from any walkways or driveways.
  4. Seal/Coat any Flat Roof areas: If your home has any type of flat roofing, get a fresh coating. This will ensure your roof will stand up to the freeze and thaw cycles ahead.
  5. Remove Tree Hazards: Mature trees too close to the house can be much more dangerous in the winter months. Heavy snows, freezing rain and high winds are all conditions that could send a large branch or the entire tree itself onto your home’s roof. The damage to a roof could be catastrophic during the winter season.
