Preparing your Roof for Winter

As you start putting away the summer tools and start preparing your yard for winter, take some time to prepare your roof for the winter too. Canadian winters are tough on a roof and a bit of effort made in the fall can save you a lot of money in the spring.

Take a look at your roof!

Your roof should be inspected each fall to ensure that everything is good shape for the upcoming winter months. Do not do this yourself unless you feel that you can do so safely. Remember toasting to our good health this past thanksgiving weekend?

Get into the gutter

Don't be shy – get dirty! Cleaning out the gutters will not only help you when it rains, but will help prevent ice and snow from forming in them over the winter. Remember to make sure you do this after the leaves have fallen, as this will be a major source of debris for your gutters to collect.

Clear the decks

When the inspection is taking place, make sure to clear off any debris that is on the roof. Branches or anything else left up there for the winter can be destructive to your roof shingles once a few layers of ice and snow are thrown into the mix.

A stich in time saves nine

This isn't just an old cliché your mother told you about mending your socks. Get any cracked, chipped or missing shingles repaired now, before the damage spreads through a harsh winter. Trying to fix these things in sub-zero weather can be dangerous and very expensive.
