Perhaps, you do not have enough money to spare in order to hire someone who will fix your roof before the rainy season comes. Here is good news for you. You can weather proof your roof by all means with the help of a friend or a family member so long as you have the right tools and basic knowledge of the appropriate procedures to be done.
Start by owning a steady ladder on which can stand firmly on the ground while holding you up a certain height. Secure safety gears like gloves, hard hats, harness, eye protection glasses and a nice pair of boots that are anti-slip.
Moving forward, here are some safety practices to observe. Firstly, refrain from walking or working on wet roof. The same is true when leaves and snow covering its surface. Secondly, be mindful not to spread all your tools on the surface of the roof. Set aside the tools you are done using so that you would not step on them and slip down all the way to the ground. Thirdly, have a regular inspection of your roofs. Arrest small problems right away. They can turn into big ones which will cause you to spend more. Lastly, professional help if the damage is too big for you to handle.
