Use Inspection Checklist to Prepare Your Roof for Winter
One of the most important things you can do before winter settles in at your site is to inspect your roof. That’s because most roof damage occurs during winter. Harsh weather conditions—such as heavy rain or snow, strong winds, and extreme temperatures—can cause substantial damage to a building’s roof, says Kent Mattison, president of a roofing consultant company. But many sites worry about their roofs only after these conditions cause damage, such as leaks. This reactive approach can lead to premature roof failure and costly interior damage.
