Ways to Storm Proof Your Roof

One minute it could be sunny and nice and the next it could be rainy and windy.  After all, your roof is the first line of defense against storms.

To help storm proof your roof…

  • Get your roof inspected. During the inspection the professional roofer will check the shingle conditions, flashing is secure, gutters and downspouts are connected and making sure the attic is dry and not showing any signs of leaks.
  • Make sure your roof decking and support structures are reinforced and secure. You can do this by inspecting the roof decking, replacing any weak or rotted wood and evaluate the trusses and supports.
  • Inspect your gutters and downspouts. Make sure they are clean and water can flow easy and unobstructed.

Storm-proofing your home is essential in the Midwest. By having regular inspections and maintenance; you can help protect your home from storm-related damage.
