Is Your Roofing System Ready for Winter?
In autumn, before the cold of winter, there is quite a bit of work to be done and regular maintenance tasks to be considered. For most people, for example, this means checking the condition of windows, checking doors and in some cases the walls. While making sure that your home truly resists winter in the coldest months of the year, the roof can be easily forgotten, even though it is one of the most important parts of the house in terms of air penetration and efficient heating or cooling. At Springtree Restoration in Allen, Frisco, and Gainseville, our team of experienced roofing specialists has been working with the residents of these Texas communities for years to solve a variety of roofing problems.
The reality is that the roof of your house is responsible for up to 35% of the total heat loss in the room. This means that in addition to the unfavorable temperature in your home, your HVAC system must work harder to keep everything warm when your roof is not in good condition. To help Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, prepare for the coldest months of the year, our team has put together several important things to remember during the process.
A Professional Inspection is Important
If you want to prepare a roof for the change of seasons, you don’t have to jump right into the repair work, but scheduling an inspection by one of our experienced specialists is an important place to start. Even minor problems with the overall condition of your roof can turn serious when the weather gets bad. However, this problem is not always easily identified without proper training and experience.
When experienced contractors inspect your roof, you can use their skills and knowledge to thoroughly address the surface of your roof and identify potential problems as early as possible. In some cases, leakage and damage can only be a minor disturbance on the roof surface that isn’t easily noticed. Without industry experience, such signs are barely visible.
A Thorough Cleaning Makes a Difference
As an important part of the entire roof system, gutters can play a big role in the function of your roof and the protection it offers. If you take the time to make sure your gutters are clean and free of dirt before the coldest months of the year, you can be sure that water or other debris will flow out of your home instead of going inside, collecting in unexpected areas or causing additional damage to your home.
Quality Insulation is Important
Insulation systems mounted inside the ceiling or under the surface of your roof can play an important role in whether your home stays comfortable all year or not. This is especially true in the coldest months. Various problems, including humidity, mildew, and others, be caused inside your home because of inadequate protection in the coldest season.
If you are not sure whether your home insulation is in good condition, you should always ask a professional to check these conditions to determine whether repairs are needed or whether additional insulation should be added before the start of these chilling months.
