Keep Up with FL Roofing Maintenance This Winter

Although we usually experience milder weather in the winter, that doesn’t mean you should neglect roofing maintenance. In fact, the mild weather provides the perfect opportunity to inspect and repair FL roofing. At Ridgecap Roofing, our team is dedicated to ensuring that your roof is in good condition to protect your home and family all year.


Here’s what you can do this winter to maintain your FL roofing.


Clean Gutters and Downspouts

If your home has a gutter system, ensure the gutters and downspouts are clear of debris, such as leaves and branches. This helps prevent water buildup during occasional rain showers and ensures proper drainage. When it does rain, observe your gutters and downspouts to check for clogs.


Check for Leaks

Check the interior of your home for any signs of water stains or leaks. We still get the occasional rainstorm in the winter, and it’s important to catch any leaks early. If you do see signs of leaks, examine the flashing around the vents and other roof penetrations. Make sure it is securely in place and sealed properly to prevent water intrusion.

While you’re checking the flashing, look for any loose or missing shingles or tiles. If you notice any gaps, have a roofing contractor repair them promptly to prevent water infiltration.


Trim Overhanging Branches

If you have trees near your house, trim any overhanging branches that could potentially damage the roof during storms or high winds. This reduces the risk of branches falling onto the roof and causing damage. If there is debris, such as leaves or twigs, on the roof surface, clear it away. Accumulated debris can trap moisture and lead to the growth of mold or mildew.


Check Ventilation and Insulation

Ensure that your attic is adequately ventilated. Proper ventilation helps regulate temperature and humidity, preventing mold or mildew growth. You should also check the insulation in your attic to ensure it is in good condition. Proper insulation helps maintain a consistent temperature in your home.
