Four things to consider before winter completely sets in…

Posted on November 24, 2014 at 5:12 PM
For almost 30 years, Roof Doctor, Inc. has been taking tons of calls in the dead of winter which are related to the four issues below.  Many times weather conditions have to subside before the repair can actually take place and damage can double, triple, or worse.  For these issues, and all other roof concerns, call us for QUALITY repairs and workmanship.


1.       Gutters & downspouts should be cleared free of debris so they are able  to maintain a contstant drain when there is rain, sleet, and snow.


2.       Never let your gutters freeze solid with ice and debris.  This puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the gutter system and can pull it away from your house, damaging the gutters permanently.  The fascia and roof can be compromised if your gutters pull away and the house and ceiling juncture can be compromised, letter water leak in.



3.       Down spouts filled with debris that have also frozen can start thawing at the gutter juncture, causing rot to the fascia, rotting soffit, and leaks into your house.  


4.       You will want to have your roof thoroughly checked for open voids under eves and soffits.  Critters such as raccoons, opossums, squirrels, snakes and birds absolutely take advantage of these areas and many, many times make these attic entrances even larger to live in your attic ALL winter long where the warm environment is excellent shelter from the winter variables.  These entrances also become prime areas for rain, snow, and sleet to blow in and cause a leak on your interior home ceiling.  Have these areas properly blocked off with custom cut metal exterior patches.
