Plan Ahead and Get Your Home Prepared for the Next Winter Season

Of all parts in your home’s exteriors, the roofing system probably took the hardest hit during the winter months. This is because your roof always has to hold up against harsh snowfall, especially if you are living in the Minnesota and North Dakota area where winter usually tends to be longer.

And now that it’s finally springtime heading into summer, you can tend to your roofing problems and make sure that it would be able to withstand next winter’s chilly grip. This article from Forbes.com provides you with a detailed guide to avoid yearly home issues:

Are You Making These Smart Cold Climate Design Choices?

Ice dams, burst pipes, drafty rooms, dangerously slick stairways — if you live in a chilly climate, you’ve probably had to deal with at least one of these problems at some point. Thankfully, there are some design moves that can help you avoid (or at least mitigate) common winter woes.

Choose a metal roof. It’s the most durable option, sheds snow with ease and rarely springs a leak. Asphalt shingles also stand up well in harsh winters and are less costly to repair than wood or slate shingles.
