Maintaining your roof during winter is probably not on your list of holiday priorities. Taking care of a few things around your home, however, is prudent because your roof will be subject to freezing temperatures and moisture. Doing so can spare you from costly damage and high energy bills.
As your trusted roofing expert, Hinkle Roofing can help. Check out our list, where we discuss a few projects you can focus on.
1. Roof Inspections and Repairs
Your roof is your primary line of defense against the elements, so keep it free of cracks and holes to prevent serious moisture issues. Furthermore, keep your attic well-ventilated and insulated to prevent warm, damp air from causing rot and mold growth. If you notice signs of damage, turn to experts like us right away. We’ll perform a thorough inspection to assess your roof’s health and provide the needed repairs.
2. Roof Replacement
For bigger issues, roof replacement might be necessary. If your old is over 20 or 30 years old and it has missing shingles or you find yourself repairing leaks more frequently than before, Hinkle Roofing recommends talking to your roofers to get an estimate for our roof replacement services.
3. Gutter Protection
It’s easy to overlook your gutters, but they play an important role in preserving your home’s structural integrity. They channel rainwater and snowmelt away from your premises to protect your roof, foundation, and other parts of your exterior. Keep your gutters clear, especially in winter, and you can do so easily with a gutter protection system.
4. Upgrade Your Siding
You might want to upgrade your siding, especially in winter, as damaged, worn-out, or cracked siding can expose your wall insulation. This then leads to higher energy bills because your heating has to compensate. Certain siding materials, like our vinyl siding products, can improve your home’s protection and energy efficiency.
