With fall in full swing and the temperatures dropping more and more, it’s not hard to believe that winter is right around the corner. So, what can you do to help prepare your roof for the extreme cold, ice, and snow of winter?

Roof covered in snow can cause damage not only to your roof and home, but can also result in personal injury. Here are some tips from State Farm to help you prevent snow damage during those cold winter months:

  • If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and ice during the winter months, it is important to be proactive about removing snow and ice from your roof before it’s too late. It is best to have a professional do this to ensure the job is done as safely as possible.
  • Unlike your sidewalks, salt and ice-melting products should not be used on your roof. They can cause damage to the shingles and gutters.
  • If you have an attic space, be sure that is insulated. This helps to prevent the warm air in your home from entering spaces in your attic that aren’t heated. If this happens, it can warm your roof and use snow to melt and freeze into ice– a situation that you want to avoid.
  • When it comes time to replace your roof, it’s a great idea to install a self-sealing membrane under the shingles. This membrane helps to prevent water damage from snow and ice.
