Protecting Your Home & Roof From the New York Winter

As winter fast approaches, it becomes increasingly more important that we protect our homes from enduring any weather related damages. Wind, hail, snow, and heavy rains prove to be harmful to homes. While there is not much we can do to prevent these weather conditions, we can prevent costly damages by conducting the proper home maintenance tasks, including:

  • Trimming your trees can keep your home, your roof, and others safe from weather related damages.
  • Before the rainy season begins, make sure to hire a professional roofer who can make sure your roof is not in need of repair. While they are up there, they can help clean your downspouts and gutters to avoid flooding.
  • It is important that your attic has sufficient insulation so that heat does not escape and melt the snow on your roof and create an ice dam when it freezes again.
  • Most importantly, be sure to have a professional inspect your roof anytime there is a severe storm or when a new season is approaching.
