Winter is now in full swing, and snow accumulation is starting to affect our daily lives. Without proper preparation, winter’s icy grip will start taking its toll on your home. Today we have some Carmel roofing tips to help you make sure the roof of your house is able to brave any storms and survive the season.
Below are more household winter preparation tips from the Carmel roofing professionals of Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services.
Roof Inspection: Snow accumulation on your roof may look pretty, but that white powder is packing on a lot of weight. It would be wise to have a roofing inspection performed before a great deal of snow begins roosting atop your home. An already weakened roof could easily buckle underneath wet, densely packed snow – and that’s a holiday surprise nobody wants.
Professional Help: DIY enthusiasts love performing repairs around the home. While we understand the thrill of finding and correcting household problems with your own hands, you should still be extra cautious with something as serious as roof repairs. Don’t risk your own well-being or that of your family by attempting a roofing repair out of your skill set. A bruised ego will hurt a lot less than an unintentional collapsed roof.
Warning Signs: If you’ve noticed leaking and sagging, it’s probably time for a new roof or restoration services. Leaking may be caused by an ice dam. Ice dams occur when debris is lodged in your home’s gutters and block melting ice and snow from draining properly. With nowhere to go, the water seeps into your home’s walls and roof, causing water damage. If undetected, this water damage can wreak havoc on your home’s structural integrity.
