Protect Your Roof Against Winter Storm Damage

Our MidSouth winters offer beautiful, snow-capped landscapes, chimneys piping smoke on cold nights, and the company of loved ones enjoying holiday festivities. Unfortunately, these comforts can come at a price if you experience a strong storm that leads to roof damage.

Your home’s roof is especially vulnerable to damage during harsh winters, and it’s important to do everything you can to stay ahead of the weather and respond to issues as swiftly as possible. Damaged roofs can affect your entire home, so it’s crucial to protect your roof before and after strong seasonal storms. Here are some tips to help prepare you for the challenges of a winter storm and how to respond when damage occurs.

Be Proactive

The first thing you can do to prevent roof damage during winter storms is to monitor the weather during the winter season. When a strong storm approaches, block out some time in advance of its arrival to prepare your roof. You’ll also want to be prepared for several consecutive days of freezing temperatures. Knowing the weather predictions ahead of time can help you identify and address areas on your roof where ice is likely to build up. Here are a few specific tasks you can complete to prepare your roof for a winter storm:

 

  • Make sure your roof is clear of debris before snowfall. If not, the snow will add extra weight and obscure the objects, putting stress on framing and possibly warping the structure. If possible, use a tool like a snow rake or other grabbing mechanism that will allow you to remove debris from the safety of the ground. If your roof isn’t easily accessible, call a professional to help you clear it.
  • Clear any branches that may fall during a storm. Fallen branches can cause a wide range of issues, from broken shingles to a complete roof collapse.
  • Make sure your attic is properly insulated. Check for any gaps and areas without proper coverage while verifying that your baffle vents aren’t obstructed if you have a vented soffit. A well-insulated roof can help distribute heat evenly throughout its surface, ensuring that snow and ice don’t build up in one specific area. Proper insulation also prevents condensation which will occur if the warm and cold air masses are allowed to meet.
  • Check for any damages. You’ll want to examine your roof before the storm hits and make sure there aren’t any weak points that will make it especially vulnerable.
  • Take pictures. If you need to hire a contractor to repair storm damage, an expert can help with assessing the repairs your roof needs after the storm hits.
  • Check your insurance coverage. You’ll want to review your home insurance policy to determine whether it covers winter storm damages to your roof. If you don’t have an insurance policy, consider purchasing one to protect yourself from having to pay large sums of money if and when repairs are necessary.
