Far too often, we neglect to take care of something until it’s broken. We don’t replace the dishwasher until the old one spews bubbles at us, we drive on tires until our inspection is due, and we forget about our roof until there’s water leaking onto our priceless throw rug. The problem here, is most of these problems come with costly solutions. We get smacked with a high bill to fix something we didn’t even realize was important to us until it was too late. We usually sit there, with a huge bill in our hand, kicking ourselves for “not checking things sooner”
As winter gets ready to show it’s ugly face in the Northeastern Pennsylvania area, it’s time to make sure your home is ready for the winter months, before you have costly repair bills.
Winter is the toughest time for your roof, and if your roof is already weakened before the winter comes, you’re at risk for disaster. Think about it, if your roof already has damaged shingles before the winter , how would weeks of high winds, heavy snow and stagnant water add to an already damaged roof? Your roof could leak, you can loose money on heating costs or worse, your roof can cave in. Take the time now to check your shingles and your roof for damages.
