Travelers endorses these actions to assure the roof over your head is in good condition and to prevent futher potential damage:
- Trim trees and remove dead branches so they won’t damage your home if they fall because of wind, ice, or snow.
- Clear gutters and downspouts of debris. As the leaves fall, make sure they aren’t building up in the gutters.
- Check for any roof damage. Pay attention to surface bubbles and areas with missing gravel on flat roofs, or missing or damaged shingles or tiles on sloped roofs.
- Add extra insulation in the attic to guard against ice dams. When too much heat escapes, it can melt the ice and snow on the roof. When it refreezes, it can cause an ice dam, causing water to back up into your home.
- Check the flashing on the roof to make sure it’s in good condition to help prevent water penetration.
- If your roof needs replacing, consider impact-resistant roofing materials, especially if you live in a hail-prone area.
