During the summer, roof leaks can seem like a minor problem, but come the winter, they can cause some serious issues for you. Even the smallest of leaks can create permanent damage, cause black mold to form and allow pests inside. Remember, that when these winter repairs take place, you’ll also be battling snow and cold temperatures.

Below, you’ll find some things that can do to ensure you have a leak-free winter:

  • Have your attic inspected to make sure your insulation is benefitting you as much as possible. If your attic was insulated properly, it can stop by leaks by stopping heat transfer and slowing the melting of ice and snow on your home’s roof.
  • If you see any tree branches that look as though they may damage your roof, have them removed by a professional.
  • Make sure that your home’s gutters remained unclogged. Clogged gutters can cause ice dams which can lead to damage to your attic or top floor of your home.
  • With a clean roof, you have less of a chance of enduring any leaks. Keeping a roof clean can be tough, but scheduling regular inspections can make it easier. To ensure it’s done properly, hire a professional to perform the maintenance service.
