As winter looms in the distance, the dropping temperatures can result in extra wear and tear on your homes roof. It’s important that property owners in the Chattanooga and North Georgia areas know how to properly maintain their roofing systems. Using the following three tips, you can fend off roofing damage this winter as well as increase its longevity.

Monitor Your Roofs Ventilation Throughout the Winter

Poor ventilation and insulation in your attic can put your roof at risk of becoming damaged during the winter. Inspect your attic for proper ventilation and undamaged insulation. Consistent airflow in the attic is crucial to protect the integrity of your roof. When a home has poor roof ventilation or minimal insulation hot air and moisture radiate into the attic resulting in a cold upper floor and energy loss. Condensation from the roof deck can cause interior water damage, while condensation on the roof deck can cause mildew and wood rot.

Ensure Your Gutters Are Working Properly

Gutters and downspouts should be continually monitored and cleared, if needed. As snow begins to melt, it will need clear routes to drain properly. Any leftover leaves or debris in gutters can clog and obstruct water flow. If water collects in gutters, it can create seriously problems as temperature drop overnight. Standing water can damage your siding, fascia or the foundation of the house. This may be a great time to look into having gutter guards installed on your home.
