The winter season will be here before we know it. This means now is the time to ensure we’re preparing our roofs for any upcoming snow storms and inclement weather. This month we’re turning our focus to preventing roof damage this season! And remember, if you’re looking for Nashua roofers, choose MRC Construction to complete the job!

Trim Adjacent Trees

It’s important to trim the trees looming over your roof before it starts snowing. After a snowstorm, the branches can weigh down and get heavier. This provokes a higher risk of branches snapping off and causing harm to your home’s siding, gutters, and roof. If ice starts to form, this can especially cause even more damage. Though you may be able to reach some nearby branches, we recommend hiring a professional to complete the tree trimming you need for safety purposes!

Remove Snow Buildup From Your Roof

The snow may look beautiful on your roof, but it’s important not to let it sit there for long or accumulate. The build-up of snow will cause extra weight and increase the tension on your roof, resulting in various types of damage.

To help prevent and combat this issue, we recommend getting a roof rake. It also has an extended rod so you can reach the roof without having to use a ladder. This will allow you to safely remove the snow from your roof. Another option to remove snow is to hire professionals to do the work for you!

Get a Roof Inspection

If you haven’t already done so, it’s important that you get a roof inspection before winter. Especially if you have an older roof. It’s possible that there could be issues such as cracks and water damage that you may not notice. If this is the case, more severe damage could occur if these issues aren’t fixed.  So getting a professional to look at the areas you may not be able to get to is essential to prevent further damage from occurring.
