How a Roofer Can Help You Protect Your Roof In Cold Weather

Published: October 21st, 2021 | Category: Roofing

Summer is over and cold temperatures are arriving here in Minnesota. Fall and winter bring with them new hazards to your roof, including rain, leaves, ice, snow and wind; all of which can negatively impact your roof. Is your roof ready for fall? Is it essential to hire a roofer for your Lake Elmo area home to ensure it’s prepared for the harsh weather ahead? The professionals at JTR Roofing would like to offer some tips to help protect your roof in the coming months. And, if you do experience damage to your roof, don’t hesitate to contact our experienced roofer for help.

First off, it is important that you trim your trees and branches located near your roof. Be sure to get rid of weak and broken branches. This can prevent limbs from ending up on your roof or through your window during a severe spring storm.

Next, clean and secure your gutters. Make sure that your drainage system, gutters and downspouts, are securely attached to your home and clear of any leaves and debris. A clogged gutter can cause water to enter your home during a storm and a loose drainpipe can bang against your roofing and siding causing damage.

If your roof becomes damaged by hail, heavy rain, wind, snow or storm, be sure to call your insurance provider and let them know the damage and the date it was sustained, find a trusted roofer and meet with your adjuster and roofer for an inspection of the damage. Repair or replacement will follow shortly.
