Families in the Washington area should take heed of recent weather reports. As spring rolls in, the general weather is changing, which means homeowners have to prepare their homes for the coming months. Residents are warned that while the season will officially change this weekend, the cold is still here and it’ll be around for a while longer:
Another Monday and another snow storm…what a March this has been. Expect periods periods of lighter snow and flurries to continue into the afternoon. Current thinking is that we could see another inch or so across the metro on top of what we already have, making for a solid 5 to 9 inches across the region when all is said and done. There are some areas with lesser amounts, especially along the Mason Dixon line and in extreme Southern Maryland. Snow tapers by early afternoon, but it will remain cold and breezy with highs in the low to mid 30s feeling more like the teens!
Since this winter has been especially tough on homes, you should be aware of the effects on your roof. For instance, leaks can become a major problem if left unattended since water can severely damage your walls and furniture. Overall, when it comes to securing your property, you should contact Maggio Roofing, one of the leading roofing contractors in DC, to fix the most important structures so that you and your family can transition to spring worry-free.
Preparing for the months ahead should be a matter of course for homeowners. Washington roofing contractors like Maggio Roofing can help you get a firm assessment on your property so that all the visible and invisible problems can be fixed immediately. In the long run, you’ll save more money if you don’t allow small problems to grow into bigger ones that will require more extensive replacement jobs.
