Prepping Your Roof for Winter

That’s right, it’s that time of year once again. The temperature begins to drop, the leaves begin to change colors, and the days become shorter. It’s fall! Before you know it, winter will be knocking on our doors. This is the perfect time to get your roof prepped for the colder season. Winterizing your roof will ensure that it stays safe and fully operational throughout the season.

  • Adequately insulate your attic. If your attic has the right insulation and ventilation, you can avoid potential heat loss and ice dam formations.
  • Clean your gutters. Removing any type of debris or obstructions from your gutters ensures that the any melted snow or rainwater can easily flow through. Blockage can cause major water damage to your siding or even the foundation, both of which could potentially come with a hefty price tag to repair.
  • Inspection and maintenance. We recommend hiring a professional to take a look at different components of your roofing system, including flashings, shingles, etc. This allows possible smaller issues to be addressed before they become something larger.
  • Trim low hanging tree branches. Branches that hang close to your roof have the possibility of bending and falling due to excessive wind or, in some rare occasions, extra weight from snow.

The best way to avoid any damage is to be proactive in preventing it. So if you have any questions about prepping your roof for the winter in Fort Worth, TX or the surrounding area, (817) 369-5960 is the number to call. Aline Roofing is here for you!
