Is Your Roof Ready For Winter?

When you hear that a big storm is coming, do you feel nervous about how your roof will hold up? Do you start wondering about roof preparation for winter, how to prepare for roof leaks, or do you already have them? That’s probably a sign that you need a roof inspection before this winter season.


The wind-driven rains that we get in Portland really put our roofs to work. It’s important to have a good care maintenance check-up from Roof Life of Oregon so we ensure proper roof preparation for winter.

During a roof check-up, we’ll get on the roof to do a full inspection. That doesn’t mean just looking at your shingles. We’re going to grab a ladder, climb to the tip-top, and check out all the components that make up your roof. It’s our standard procedure for every roof we look at, regardless of whether or not we’ve been up there before.

The roof’s components are actually the most important to check. The pipes, step flashings, skylights, chimneys, and anywhere the roof meets a wall are what we call “sensitive areas.” These are the areas most likely to fail when they are pounded by a winter storm. If you have any debris build-up in any of these areas, you absolutely need an inspection and cleaning to make sure the water won’t find easy entry points.

No one wants to deal with a roof issue during the holidays. Schedule a well-care checkup now so you can enjoy peace of mind this winter.
