Many people here in Brevard County seem to think that they should not prepare their roofs for colder weather. After all, it doesn’t snow here in Florida, and the temperature rarely reaches freezing. Although we do not get significant winter weather in the Sunshine State, it is still essential to start preparing your roof for the worst. If you want to avoid a costly repair or replacement soon, then now is the time to prepare for winter! East Coast Roofing has put together some helpful tips on how homeowners can prepare for winter roofing, so they stay strong through this season and beyond.
Trim Your Trees
While we might not get snow, the winds do pick up around the wintertime. Because of this increase in speed, we highly suggest trimming your trees before the winter begins. Furthermore, we recommend trimming them are growing too close to the roof of your home. Loose branches can damage shingles during windy weather. It could only take a little bit of weight from one branch for it to break!
Clean Your Gutters
A clogged gutter is not only an eyesore but also a problem. Leaves, twigs, and other debris can pile up in the gutters if you do not clear them regularly enough, which could lead to big problems down the road! Rain is always something to watch out for regardless of the season. Because of this, water damage could occur quickly if your rain spouts aren’t working correctly. Make sure you check them throughout the year, but especially before the winter begins.
