Get Your Roof Ready for Denver’s Snowfall

Roofing provides an essential function by protecting residences and buildings from inclement weather. Ideally, it would be best to have a local roofing company routinely inspect and maintain the roof, thereby ensuring it is in optimal condition before Denver sees any more snow.

Denver was blanketed by snow this past weekend, and, while it is gradually melting, more is expected. The approaching winter and holiday seasons emphasize the importance of having a roofing contractor inspect this critical system, making repairs as needed to ensure it can withstand the snow’s weight.

Here are some ways to prepare your roof for Denver’s snowfall.

Rain Gutters

Addressing a clogged or damaged rain gutter system is equally vital. This system is located on the edge of the roof and direct water through the gutters and away from the house. It is designed to further protect the home from water damage around the roof, attic, and foundation.

A rain gutter system should be inspected and cleaned at least twice a year. Installing gutter guards is an effective way to minimize the frequency of cleanings by filtering out larger debris. Small debris may still be able to enter, depending on the type of guard installed. Please contact a local roofing company about available options.

Roof Inspection

Visually inspect your roof twice a year. Look for signs of aging or damage such as missing, curling, or buckling shingles; sagging areas; or excessive granule loss. In the attic, look for light entering through the rafters, damp insulation, or anything else out of the ordinary.

If you notice any issues, call a local roofing company. A roofing contractor will come to your home to perform a more comprehensive inspection. They will then provide you with their expert opinion on whether the system can be repaired or if it would be more cost-effective to replace it.

Asphalt Shingle Repair

Asphalt shingles are a popular choice for roofing. They are cost-effective, versatile, and energy-efficient. They are also available in various colors and designs and, when replacement is necessary, offer a significant return on investment. Another attractive option with an excellent ROI is metal roofing.

Over time, however, they can become damaged and require immediate repair by a local roofing company. A roofing contractor may recommend replacement if the shingles are severely damaged or missing, or the system is nearing the end of its useful life, as these issues can create more substantial problems during the winter.
