Pre-Winter Roof Inspection Checklist

Close up of a brown roof with hail damageWith winter right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you need to do to protect your roof. Winter storms can significantly damage roofs, so it’s best to get ahead of any problems to prevent the need for roof replacement in Connecticut.

Here’s a pre-winter roof inspection checklist to consider in addition to scheduling a professional roof inspection.

Clear Debris From Gutters

The leaves from your gutters need to be cleaned out before winter. Leaves and other debris can prevent water from flowing as it should, and it can freeze during winter.

If the water gets backed up too much, it can freeze on your roof and lead to roof damage. Plus, the weight of the ice in the gutters can force them to pull away from the wood and potentially create a hazardous situation. Give yourself some peace of mind by cleaning the gutters before winter arrives.

Inspect Your Shingles

When you get a professional roof inspection, the contractor will look closely for any shingles that might be damaged or missing. Any damaged shingles should be replaced as soon as possible, so it doesn’t lead to leaks this winter.

Leaks in the winter can lead to even larger problems in the spring, so get any issues addressed now.

Trim Low-Hanging Tree Limbs

Low-hanging tree limbs can cause major problems for your roof. They might not be touching your roof now, but the weight of ice and snow can change that quickly. And if the limbs get too heavy, they could break and cause even more damage.

The last thing you want to deal with is emergency roof replacement this winter. Take action now to trim any low-hanging limbs so you won’t have to worry about them touching your roof this winter.

Evaluate Attic Insulation

Improper attic insulation can cause ice dams, which are problematic for your roof. A professional roof inspection will involve evaluating your attic insulation to ensure it’s ready for any harsh winter weather.
