Getting your home ready for winter can be a race against time. With a hands-on approach and a few tweaks to your roof and attic, however, you can get it done. These areas are your priority, as heat can escape through them during the cold months.
Tedrick’s Roofing, your reliable roofing contractor in Kent, shares this winter preparation checklist for your roof and attic:
1. Check for missing or damaged shingles. Have these replaced if necessary to avoid being stuck with a leak in your roofing.
2. Check for decrepit flashing along the chimney, walls, and vent pipes. Seal all connections where moisture may likely penetrate, using some roofing cement and a caulking gun.
3. Check for slack fastening in your gutters and downspouts. Be sure to tighten any loose fixtures.
4. Schedule a thorough gutter cleaning to remove leaves and debris to prevent blockages along the downspout.
5. Cover all vents and outlets to prevent pests from getting inside your home.
6. Insulate your attic properly. High-efficiency insulation in your attic keeps warm air from escaping upward. Our insulation balances the temperature of your attic space and the roof deck, helping you keep a comfortable temperature inside your home, while reducing your reliance on the heating system and lowering your energy bills.
