Is Your Roof Winter Ready?

Is Your Roof Winter Ready?

While it’s true that Hampton Roads, Virginia doesn’t get the same extreme winter weather as some other parts of the country, it’s still important to make sure your home is winter ready—particularly your roof.

Bayview Exteriors, LLC is committed to helping Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake-area homeowners shore up their homes against the impending cold weather. If this ends up being the year some snow accumulates, we can help make sure you’re ready for that, too!

Here are 4 steps you can take to make sure your roof is ready for whatever this winter will bring:

  • Remove Debris
    Ensuring your roof is free from debris should be ongoing, and it’s an important part of winter preparedness. Debris holds moisture, so if your roof is layered in leaves and other materials, even a light snow could easily lead to mold and other issues as the debris will retain the moisture long after the snow has melted off.
  • Clean Your Gutters
    Clogged gutters leave your home more susceptible to ice dams, which can cause water to back up behind the dam, enter the home, and wreak havoc on walls, insulation, and ceilings. Ensuring your gutters are in good working condition and free of clogs is one way to prevent ice dams from forming.
  • Remove Hanging Branches
    Even a mild winter storm can cause hanging branches to damage your roof. Instead of taking chances, have any branches that could threaten your roof removed or trimmed back.
  • Have a Thorough Inspection Performed
    This is one of the most important things you can do to be sure your roof is winter-ready. A professional inspection allows you to learn about any issues with the shingles, roof valleys, and roof edges—all areas very susceptible to damage during snow or freezing temperatures.

Bayview Exteriors makes it fast, easy, and affordable to get the winter roof inspection you need. If we find any issues that need to be corrected, we’ll take the time to document and explain them to you and, in most cases, we can make the repairs within a day or two.
