Four Roofing Tips to Prepare for a Nebraska Winter
Winter is coming to Nebraska and it’s time to prepare your roofing for the harsh temperatures. The extreme temperatures, the heavy snow, freezing ice and wind can all wreak havoc on your roof. Before the temperatures become too cold, check your roofing and surrounding areas for any signs of problems.
- Clear any drains or gutters. The drains and gutters are essential to your house when snow begins to melt. You want to pull it away from your house as quickly as possible. Having a clear path will allow it to flow away quickly.
- Trim the trees. If you have mature trees around your house, trim them back so branches to not hang over the house. When heavy snow fall or ice storms occur, the branches could break and damage the roof of your home.
- Inspect your roof. Walking around the outside of your home looking for any visible damage or sagging; may prevent serious damage down the road.
- Check the attic. Make sure your attic is insulated and has solid ventilation. Keeping the airflow consistent helps keep your roof in good condition.
An inspection will help reduce the likeliness of freezing rain, heavy snow and extreme temperatures causing damage to your roof. You’ll be at ease knowing your roof is prepared for the harsh weather of winter.
