Getting Your Roof Ready for Winter
By J-Conn Roofing, Tuesday, October 29, 2019


While we may not get the snow or severe weather events in Texas that they do in other parts of the country, maintenance of your roof to prepare for winter is still important. Trees should be trimmed back away from your roof and all leaves and debris should be removed from the roof and gutters. If gutters are full or there are areas where debris gathers on your roof, this may cause water to pond or back up, essentially not flowing off your roof as it should, which can cause leaks. Have a professional roofing contractor, like J-Conn Roofing, inspect the roof for any maintenance or repairs needed such as cracked, loose, or missing shingles, loose or popped up flashing and vents, and animal or wind damage. Any one of these issues, if not addressed, can lead to interior damage, rotten wood, and mold. Let the roofing professionals at J-Conn Roofing correct any problems found, which will save you money in the long run and help prolong the life of your roof. This is also a great time for the roofer to ensure you have the proper ventilation on your roof, which not only helps regulate temperature and condensation in your attic, but also helps to prolong the life of your roof.

Maintenance of your roof is important all year long. Your roof protects your home and all your items in it! We recommend having your roof inspected regularly which will help prevent additional damage and save you money in the long run!
