As a first step, we strongly advise you to schedule a professional roof inspection, especially before and after the winter. Before the snowy season, you’ll need to know if the interior parts, such as collar beams, battens, or rafters, need to be reinforced or replaced. Plus, a thorough check of the exterior material would let you know whether it can withstand another winter or needs repair or replacement. Once winter is over, you’ll need to assess any potential snow and ice-related damage. Consequently, professional inspectors from a licensed roofing company can identify issues like cracks from ice dams, structural damage from snow accumulation, or leaks, helping you address problems early and maintain the structural integrity of your roof.
