Prep Your Roof for Winter: Before the winter weather hits, follow these tips to prepare your roof for the season.

Clear Debris
With the changing of seasons, many trees and shrubbery shed off debris, such as leaves and branches. It’s important to check your roof, gutters, downspouts, and other surrounding elements to ensure they’re free of debris. This will help prevent snow and ice from building up in the winter.

Make Repairs
If your roof shows any signs of damage, it’s important to repair them—immediately! Be sure to check the shingles as well as the flashing around windows, skylights, chimneys, and other elements. If you spot any chips, cracks, warping, or loose materials, call EverGuard Roofing for shingle roof repair in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and surrounding areas.
