Maintaining Your Roof:

The biggest threat to your roof from cold weather comes in the form of ice. Water, unlike most liquids, expands when it freezes. This means that any that works it’s way into the cracks and crevices can cause major damage if it freezes. To avoid this, you want to maintain your roof before any indications of freezing temperatures.
