The benefits of residential roof winterizing don’t end there though. A well-maintained roof saves you money on electricity, prevents roof leaks, and prevents ugly roof damage. Today, we’ll walk all of you East Texas homeowners through the roof winterization process so you can protect your property this winter season.
Residential Roof Winterizing
Many homes are built with shingles that may have problems during the winter. High winds can cause lifting. Insufficient insulation can lead to ice damming. Clogged gutters can leave standing water on your roof that has nowhere to drain. Even if you don’t have a flat roof you still need to perform winter maintenance on your roof to prevent any problems from arising. Residential roof winterizing will protect your business for years to come.
We recommend that you keep performing a 360º inspection from the safety of the ground. If you see any problems are suspect that you might’ve missed something, give East Texas Roof Works in Tyler, Texas a call. Our team of roofers proudly serves Smith county and the surrounding areas. We’d be happy to inspect and winterize any residential building in the area to protect your property and investment.
Once you call us out for a consultation, you can expect our roofing contractors to walk your roof and perform a thorough inspection. It’s important to leave this to the professionals though because walking around a roof is dangerous, but roofers are insured and trained in best safety practices. Roofing systems are also extremely delicate and one misstep could lead to expensive repairs. East Texas Roof Works can easily navigate your roof and inspect your building’s:
- Chimney and chimney caps
- Vent covers
- Loose flashing and shingles
- Drainage system
- Attachments (security devices, antennas, etc.)
If we find any problems, we’ll notify you right away, explain the issue, and develop a repair plan. Hopefully, we won’t find any existing issues and we can just take care of your roof maintenance and residential winterization. Some of the major services we provide to reduce the potential for damage include roof cleaning, roof drainage, secure equipment covers, and trimming overhanging branches.
Our residential roof cleanings include power washing, soft wash chemical removal, or basic debris removal. Regular roof cleaning keeps your roof looking fresh and prevents clogged drains and gutters. This is important because heavy gutters can pull away from the roof and cause roof damage.
Residential buildings tend to have more complex drainage systems than residential properties. That makes drainage maintenance even more important because clogs and broken parts will be more expensive to fix and may have more serious ramifications. It’s best to have a local roofing company like East TX Roof Works check in on these roofing components after storms and during the fall time when leaves are falling.
Trim Overhanging Branches
Another common reason for shingle damage and roof debris is overhanging branches. They can bump up against your roofing system or cause even more damage when they break off and crush your roof during a wind storm.
