How to Keep Your Roof in Good Shape This Winter


Winter weather can be uniquely challenging for your roof. As an experienced roofing company, we recommend preparing your roof and gutters for the cold months. Proper preparation can help prevent problems with your roofing system. Fortunately, the maintenance jobs you need to perform are simple. Summit Point Roofing explains more:

  • Perform a Simple Visual Inspection – Go to your attic, and look for any signs of water spots on the ceiling or on the walls. Water spots can indicate that there is a leak in your roof. You can also use a pair of binoculars to scan your roof. Look for any missing shingles or loose vents and flashing. These all present potential problems. We recommend paying close attention to your roof valleys because these areas are particularly prone to leaking.
  • Deal With Leaks as Soon as Possible – The moment you see any signs of potential leaks, you need to contact us. As an experienced roofing expert, we can deal with any kind of roofing problem and prevent leaks from damaging your home. If left unattended, even a small leak can cause major problems. By dealing with leaks immediately, you can save significant amounts of money on repair costs.
  • Schedule Professional Inspections – Aside from performing simple visual inspections every now and then, we strongly suggest scheduling a regular roof inspection and creating a maintenance program with us. Yearly professional inspections help ensure your roof stays in great condition. It can also extend your roof’s life span and allow you to get the most out of your roof investment. We can find and fix any potential issues with your roof.
