It might still be warm, but winter weather is just around the corner. That’s why you must prepare your home and your roof for winter before it gets too cold. Bailey’s Roofing and Construction in Sulphur, Oklahoma, have you covered if you don’t know how to prepare your roof for winter! We’re coming up with five ways to do so and sharing them with you! So don’t let the cold put damper on spending time next to the fire.
1. Clean Your Gutters
Cleaning your gutters is an excellent way to maintain them no matter what time of year it is. That’s why we’re listing it as a way to prepare for winter! You can use a ladder to get up high enough and get all of that debris out of your gutters.
2. Roof Inspection
Sometimes, you can’t see damage on your roof. This could lead to damage getting worse. Getting a professional to look at your roof before winter begins is another way to prepare for the cold weather.
3. Repairs and Replacements
Along with a pre-winter inspection, an expert should prepare to make repairs and replacements needed before it gets too cold. The sun needs to seal any replacements appropriately done, and that’s hard in the winter when there tends to be less sun.
4. Check Attic Insulation and Ventilation
To save on energy costs in the winter, your insulation and ventilation in your attic need to be spot on. It would be best if you had an expert like those at Bailey’s Roofing and Construction in Ada, Oklahoma, take a look in your attic to check these things and repair anything that needs it.
5. Be Careful Putting Up Decor
Decorating for the holidays can be exciting! However, a mistake that people make is putting extra nails on their roofs to hang decorations or support blow-up items. You should never do this when putting up decorations, so be mindful of that this winter as you decorate!
