The winter season is a tough time for all roofs. The cold air and precipitation are the primary causes of water damage and moisture concerns. AIC Roofing and Construction, Inc., the area’s leading roofing company, shares the maintenance procedures you should practice before and during the winter.
Prepare Roofing Documents
It pays to keep all your roofing documents in one place – the installation plans, invoices, receipts, contracts, warranties, inspection reports and maintenance specifications. You’ll never know when the cold weather could cause roofing issues such as moisture build-up, ice dam formation and unwanted leaks. If anything should happen to your roof during the winter season, you won’t have to search for anything that you need to get the repairs and insurance claims process started.
Schedule an Inspection
Inspection by a professional roofer should be part of your winter maintenance checklist. The cold weather could do some harm underneath the roof exterior and only a skilled roofing expert can detect hidden roof issues. This also does your insurance provider a huge favor if ever a storm affects your roof. Some roofing companies only allow insurance claims from a regularly inspected roof to rule out non-natural causes of damage.
Regularly Check on Ventilation
Ventilation is highly important in keeping your roof temperature regulated. This means checking on its condition from time to time throughout the season. For residential roofs, regularly check the temperature of your attic to know whether or not the vents are doing their job. And for commercial roofs, manage the exhaust from vent stacks with the help of a roofing professional.
