Preparing your Santa Rosa Beach Florida roof for winter

We don’t have a lot of snow and ice here in Panama City Beach or South Walton, Florida, but there are other things that can damage your roof in winter. Here are some things that you can do to help protect your roof before cold weather sets in:

1. Inspect and clean your gutters. It’s not a fun job, but it can help keep your roof in good condition. Clogged gutters can cause standing water and leaks. You’ll also want to make sure gutters are properly fastened to each other to protect inside walls.

2. Clear limbs, leaves and debris from the valleys of the roof lines.

3. Make sure flashing is secure and is not ripped or torn. These aluminum pieces protect your roof around the edges; it’s less expensive to fix them before leaks become a problem.

If you find that the scope of a roof inspection is too much for you to do alone then contact us. Our professional roofers can help you save money over the long haul with proper roof maintenance and repairs.
