We have a few preparation tips below that will save you time and money before any roof problems set in or worsen.

Minneapolis, MN prepare your roof for winter

Check the Gutters

The gutter system works to drain rain water and snow melt off your roof and away from your house to save the roof from leaks. However, in the fall, leaves and debris tend to fall into the gutters and clog them. Clogged gutters don’t provide any of the benefits your roof needs from a gutter system. Thus, it is best to clean your gutters before snowy weather sets in to prevent gutter clogs this winter. Believe us, your roof will thank you.

Check the Attic for Leaks

It can be dangerous and impractical to climb on your roof without the proper safety gear. However, you can check for roof leaks without ever leaving the comfort of the indoors. Simply check the ceiling of your attic for any wet spots or sunlight to determine if there are holes in your roof that need to be fixed before winter rolls in fully. This will save you a lot of time and hassle on roof repairs later.
