3 Tips To Prepare Your Roof For The Winter
JVW Contracting, professional roofers in Monmouth County, NJ, recommends taking the following 3 preventative roofing measures before the winter.
- Clean Off Debris – The roof collects a lot of debris throughout the year. If leaves and other types of debris being to pile up on your roof it will only be a matter of time before the moisture that is captured turns into mildew or mold. This can result in damage to your roofs surface but can be easily prevents by clearing your roofs surface each season.
- Inspect & Clean Gutters – Gutters help to remove water from your roof and divert it away from your home’s structure and foundation. If your gutters and downspouts are clogged they will begin to retain water which will prevent them from performing the way they were meant to. During the freezing months these clogged gutters will freeze and form ice dams, which will allow snow and ice to collect on your roof.
- Schedule A Roofing Inspection – One of the most important preventative measures you can take this fall is to call a professional roofer to inspect your homes roof. Most local roofers in NJ will inspect your roofs surface, walk the roof to be sure there are no soft spots and also thoroughly inspect for any signs of damage that would be a potential threat.
