4 Ways to Winterize Your Roof

Dec 10, 2018 | Roofing

Weather has been pretty unpredictable in the year 2018 and you may see springlike temperatures one day and need your heaviest winter coat the next! That’s why it’s important for you to prepare your roof for these types of extremes.

Greenawalt Roofing is here to help!


Here are four ways you can winterize your roof:

  1. Get your roof inspected – Give us a call to inspect your roof for leaks, storm damage, or other issues. The sooner you catch a roof leak or other problems, the better chance you’ll have of preventing damage to your home.

  2. Insulate and ventilate – Proper insulation and ventilation in your attic will help prevent snow from re-freezing after it melts.

  3. Clean out downspouts and gutters – Be sure to keep your gutters and downspouts cleaned out. It’s the best way to ensure that water flows away from your home and your roof.

  4. Cut overhanging tree limbs – Tree limbs are prone to falling on your roof and damaging your shingles, especially when snow, ice, and wind are involved. Trim tree limbs to prevent shingle deterioration and damage.
