Fall is here, which means winter is just around the corner. Homeowners across the country are taking steps to prepare for the winter months ahead and certainly one important thing all you homeowners must do is winterize your roof. Winter months typically mean consistently low temperatures, bitter cold winds, and of course ice storms and abundant snowfall. With the brisk, cold winter days ahead the staff here at Arrow Roofing and Solar look forward to assisting our clients with all their roofing needs.

Understanding how important it is to winterize your roof, we here at Arrow Roofing and Solar offer the following checklist for all our clients, old and new, on how to winterize your roof. We highly recommend you prepare your roof for the winter months ahead by following this simple checklist. This easy to follow checklist will ensure that your roof is ready for winter and all that the season brings your way.

A Checklist to Winterize Your Roof

This effective checklist can, in some instances, be carried out by homeowners themselves, but if you are not comfortable to perform these tasks, then surely give a shout out to our team of roofing experts and let us prepare your roof for the winter months ahead. Here is the checklist and the simple tasks that need be performed.

  • An inspection of the roof for damaged, loose or missing shingles should be performed and all shingles fixed or replaced as needed.
  • An inspection of the vents, flashing, skylights and joints of the roof should be performed since they can very well get damaged from all types of various weather conditions.
  • An inspection of the valleys and peaks of your roof which are typically susceptible to leaks from hailstorms or thunderstorms or other severe weather conditions.
  • A thorough cleaning of your gutters and downspouts to make certain that they are draining properly and there are no leaks. Be certain to remove any type of debris, leaves, twigs or any other accumulated materials that can block the drains and cause water, rain or melting ice to spill over the roof.
  • An inspection of your roof’s underlayment system to be certain that it is equipped with a shield for ice and water protection from ice dams, harsh rains, moving water, and any other water related issues or problems.
  • Removal of any branches on trees located near to your rooftop since, during a severe storm, these branches can become heavy and/or damaged and fall onto your roof causing excessive, costly damage.
