There are ways you can brace your roof for the coming cold seasons. Both winter and fall can take a toll on your roof, and you can start preparing your roof for that by following these tips from Treadlite Roofing, the leading residential and church roof installation company.
Schedule an Inspection
An inspection by your trusted roofing contractor is the first thing you should do. It will help you identify the weak spots in your roof and detect early signs of roof damage, such as leaks, inadequate insulation, mold formation and other roofing damage.
Some roofing companies like Treadlite Roofing can cover the repair costs in case of material defects or improper installation.
Strengthen Attic Ventilation
During fall and winter, you should pay attention to your attic ventilation system because it works double-time to maintain the temperature inside your home. With faulty attic ventilation, you are more likely to experience ice dam formation in your gutters. Poor attic ventilation will also increase your energy bills because conditioned air from inside your home will seep out through the cracks, forcing your HVAC system to work harder just to maintain a comfortable temperature.
Replace Weakened Shingles
If your contractor spots curling, cracked or loose shingles on your roof, then it’s time to replace them to get ready for the cold months. If your roof is nearing the end of it service life, you could also opt for complete roof replacement to provide better protection for your home.
