To avoid any damage to the roof and injury to workers, leave the snow removal to our pros. To help you minimize the risk, here is a checklist to guide you throughout the process.
Roof Inspection Service Process

Examine Roof Structure
Initially, we will check the roof for possible damage and deterioration. We will make sure all your shingles are intact and free of cracks and damages.
Remove Debris and Snow
After examination, we will move on to the next step of removing excess snow or any other debris. Clogged drains will also be taken care of at this point to prevent leaks within your building.

Roofing Maintenance Tips to Follow
Here are some tips and tricks you can follow to make your roof perform best in the winters:
Remove Snow, Ice, And Debris
When the temperature is freezing outside, it is very easy to overlook outdoor maintenance. However, it is important that you pay attention to the roof during winter. If the gutters are filled with leaves, nests, or small branches, they will not do their job.
Also, you can wait for the snow to melt because when it turns to water, it can start leaking, bringing water damage to the roof, house structure, and even siding.
If you weren’t aware that snow has already damaged your roof and siding, call our vinyl siding contractors to make the required changes.
Schedule Routine Inspections
Roof damage is hardly noticeable by homeowners because the area is rarely viewed. If the roof has any missing shingle or started leaking, it is important that you call for our roof inspection services immediately. We can help you prevent excessive water damage and structural risk. Ideally, we would recommend homeowners get their roof inspected twice a year, especially when there is a risk of damages due to weather conditions.
