The just-released Top 10 Winter Roofing Maintenance Tips advises homeowners check their roof at least twice a year. This strategy involves inspecting the roofing to make sure that it has not deteriorated.

Another tip when carrying out a roof inspection is for homeowners to look out for broken or loose tiles, cracked sealant, or loose roofing panels. If they find any issues, then the problems should be repaired as quickly as possible to reduce any home damage.

Another tip when checking the roof is to limit roof traffic because the more frequently the roof is walked on, the greater the risk of damage. The fourth tip released indicates that if family members must get on the roof, then they need to know that shingles can split under foot, flashing may fracture when put under load and roof tiles and tile cement can crack.

Roofing is made to protect against the weather, not to withstand load. Therefore, it’s advised to use a ladder or scaffold to get to the outer edges of the roof.

Other tips released include an annual attic inspection. For instance, tip seven suggests that when conducting an attic inspection do so when it’s raining, as this enables you to see any leaks. While tip eight states that if it’s not possible to inspect the attic on a wet day, then look for mold, mildew, warped wood, and stains on the insulation as these are all indications that leaks are occurring.

The final tips focus on ice dam prevention. Shingles and other forms of roofing cannot withstand ice build-up or a ridge that prevents water from draining. To prevent an ice dam from forming ensure that the home’s insulation adequately fills in any gaps, especially around chimneys and exhaust systems and near roof edging.
