Roofing professionals often consider fall a great time to carry out roof maintenance, especially in preparation for winter. With the amount of moisture and harsh weather your roof will be subjected to, the risk of damage increases.
In this article, All American Roofing shares some essential to-do’s for you this fall.
Check the Gutters
It’s common for trees to shed their leaves during fall, and many of these leaves will probably end up in your gutters. Make sure your gutters are free of fallen leaves, dirt, or any kind of debris. By simply cleaning your gutters, you can avoid or minimize the risk of drainage issues and ice dams, which can later on lead to more serious roofing problems.
If there are trees that overhang your roof, you might want to trim their branches as well. Ice, snow, and high winds can cause these branches to break, and this could damage your roof shingles.
Carry Out Repairs
Damaged or missing shingles are common issues with residential roofing. If left unchecked, these can weaken your roof and expose your entire home to further damage. Have your roof repaired before it gets exposed to extreme weather during the winter.
Watch Out for Roofing Issues
Through regular roof inspections, you can detect and address roofing issues before they become more difficult to fix. Since professionals have the knowledge and expertise in this kind of job, you can rest assured that all bases will be covered. It’s not uncommon for the untrained eye to miss minor damage, so it’s often best to leave this to the experts.
