Preparing Your Roof for Wisconsin's Spring Weather

Prepare Your Roof for Spring

At the end of a long winter, many of us look forward to spring and a season of renewal and refreshing our homes.  

Here are 3 things to help you prepare your roof for the coming season:

  1. From a safe distance, check for any damage from snow and ice. Ice dams and snow build-ups are a risk to you, your family, and your property. Consider snow guards or snow rails and other safety enhancements, including ventilation, to manage next year’s wintry storms.
  2. Trim tree branches that are getting too close to the roof, and remove any organic material (leaves, seeds, etc.) that builds up over time. If you’re unable or don’t want to trim branches from the ground, please hire a professional arborist or tree trimmer to do this work for you. Know that asphalt shingles often develop unsightly mildew and spots that cannot be removed or swept away.  
  3. Check your attic and roof ventilation. Proper ventilation reduces the likelihood of condensation and mold growth and can lower home energy costs. Your home’s roof collects heat; if it isn’t directed outside by ventilation, it increases your home’s operating costs. When you request a roofing estimate, we offer a complete attic and ventilation inspection.

Now is a great season to buy a new roof. We’re expecting another record year for residential metal roofing, with Wisconsin homeowners choosing the beauty, energy efficiency, wind resistance, and durability of an American Metal Roof.

We understand that every home and homeowner’s situation is unique. That’s why we take the time to offer you a free roofing consultation, where we listen to your concerns and answer your questions. We’d love the opportunity to talk with you about finding the best roofing solution for your home.
