In winter, you need to be even more vigilant and proactive. Check regularly for any signs of icicles build-up and ice dams - especially after a snowstorm or windstorm, etc. Make sure that your fascia and downspout are not clogged with debris, ice, snow, dead leaves, etc. Use a roof rake to eliminate excess snow buildups.

Would you know how to tell when it is time have a roofing professional take a look at your roof? Or have you been purposely ignoring the obvious warning signs that you may need to have your roof examined simply because you fear the thought of what it will cost to repair or replace your roof, if indeed a problem is found? Which ever the case, you're not alone. In fact you are like so many other home owners who just don't have the time or money or patience for another home repair project, another expense, basically another headache to have to budget for. You may have been saving for a family trip, a new car, or even renovating one of the rooms in your home and think that you just can't afford right now. So you ignore the signs and you put it off in favor of the new car, the family trip, or the master bathroom renovation. But unfortunately roof repair is not something you want to put on the back burner, as it can end up costing you substantially more money down the road, if it's not already costing you more money now!

Inspect Your Roof Twice A Year And After Every Heavy Storm The first step in maintaining your roof in top condition is spending a little time inspecting your roof twice year, in the spring and fall, and after major storms.

If a roof consistently has lost a lot of its granules it is definitely time to replace it. Without an adequate amount of granule, which helps reflect the UV rays and protect the more sensitive lower layers of the material, the roof will soon be leaking. However, if the roof has enough granules that you consistently cannot see the underlying composition layers, the chances are good that, withstanding other issues, it might have more life remaining.

However, you need to pay extra attention so that the roofing material do not crack or break. If you know how about the properties of your roofing material and know how to repair it, go ahead, get the job done.

But at the same time, you need to be more careful to keep your roof clear of all the debris like branches and dead leaves, etc.
