Roof Damage Protection in Winter

November 30, 2022


Let’s look at how you can prevent roof damage during Atlanta’s cooler winter months and ensure the protection of your home and all it contains.

Clear all debris as safety allows.

Make sure your roof, gutters, and downspouts are free of debris. Remove pine needles, leaves, twigs, and anything else that accumulates. Do this as a prevention on non-precipitation days and use a ladder safely. Consider hiring a roofing or gutter professional for this task, and get a head start next year in the fall.

Look for damaged shingles and leaks.

Extreme winter weather in the form of wind, hail, and even sometimes snow can damage your roof. Shingles can come loose or completely blow off. After a storm, safely check for any roof penetrations or exposed surfaces to ensure leaks have not developed. Hire a roofing professional to replace damaged shingles and make repairs as soon as possible.

Check your attic ventilation.  

The performance of your attic directly impacts the performance of your roof. If poorly ventilated or insulated. Keeping the airflow in your attic consistent helps your roof maintain its integrity. 

Get a professional roof inspection.
