Reports by WeatherBug indicate that Salisbury, Maryland will experience rather chaotic weather conditions which include rain and snow, along with a storm system heading up north. Is your residential roofing in Salisbury MD up for the challenge? If you’re in need of a better and longer lasting roof, you need to start with proper maintenance ASAP. Here are 4 ways to keep your roof ready for harsh weather:

Tip #1: Inspect Your Roof

It’s good practice to take initiative and conduct a personal inspection on your roof. However, we do not recommend climbing up the ladder on your own. Instead, use a pair of binoculars and from where you are standing outside your house, look at every section Start from the ridge, flashing and shingles and end by checking out the gutter system.

Tip #2: Clean Your Roof Regularly

A clean roof is less likely to experience any problems. Remove any debris from your gutters to avoid clogging and make sure you remove the branches that fall from nearby trees.
