Make a list and check it twice: Check your roof a few times a year. As we head into winter, it is a great time to make a short list of things to do to keep your roof in great shape in the coming year. A few options are scheduling a roof inspection or having regular maintenance performed on your roof. Staying on top of the repairs can help minimize overall costs as well as keep you prepared for any expected upkeep in the future.

Naughty & Nice List: When hiring a roofer, make sure they’re on the nice list. There are a couple of fantastic resources to find out if the company you’re hiring is trustworthy. Facebook, BBB, and Google are all reputable sites.
Don’t forget about your gutters, you may need to repair them from some of the coal Santa dropped out of his sleigh for the kids on the naughty list!

Sleigh Full of Presents: Make sure your roof is ready for the landing!  Is your roof saggy or soft when you walk on it? This may mean that you need new decking or might already have leaks and rotting under your shingles may not be visible from the inside. Also, be careful hanging and taking down your Christmas lights the small penetrations can cause leaks!

Milk & Cookies: Get ready for Santa to come down the chimney to leave his gifts and eat all the cookies! Check the condition of your chimney and flashing so Santa can fit in. Chimney flashings are common causes on older roofing systems for leaks it may be time to consider re-flashing your chimney!

On Dasher, On Dancer, On Prancer: It’s time for Santa to take off for all the other boys and girls! Did you notice some granules on the ground or in your gutters? Santa can only land on these shingles for 15-20 years before it’s time to get them replaced! If you’re getting close to that time, be sure to schedule an inspection so you don’t have any surprises next year.
