Winter is on our doorstep here in east Tennessee/Southwest Virginia. The winter season is rather notorious for dishing out unrelenting punishment on your home’s exterior from your roof down to your siding, so it’s best to tick the boxes on your preparation check list.
Here’s a winter-proofing checklist from your most trusted roofing contractor.
Roofs, Gutters, and Drains –
Clean Your Gutters – Doing this can prove to be an impossible chore once snowstorms set in. While things are relatively calm during fall, make it a point to keep them free from clog-causing debris.
Check for Missing Shingles – Warped, damaged or altogether missing shingles are signs of deterioration, which means you may need a roof replacement soon. Inspect your shingles before winter fully arrives.
Seal Cracks & Joints – Check all areas of your roof where water may leak in. You won’t be able to do this in the middle of winter, as inches of snowfall will cover your roofing system’s surface.
Windows and Doors –
Replace Screen Doors With Storm Doors
Inspect for Cracked or Broken Glass
Caulk any cracks or opening around your windows, doors or siding
