Fall is right around the corner, which means temperatures will start to drop and the holiday season will soon be on its way. With all of that, there has never been a better time to complete maintenance for your home. It is important around this time of year to have parts of your home, such as your water heater, plumbing, and heating, inspected and repaired before the temperatures start to drop. However, have you considered your roof? Roof maintenance can make the difference for how your roof handles the oncoming weather and temperatures. It brings to light any issues your roof has that could possibly be harmful in the winter. Having a roof inspection up to date also can make the difference in the event of unforeseen damage, as you can report that your roof and materials were secure as of a certain date. What can you do to prepare your roof for the colder months?
Roof Maintenance Checklist
Luckily, roof maintenance is not as difficult as you might think but may involve more systems than you realize. Because your roof can be damaged by environmental factors, roof maintenance for the fall can also include your landscape.
- Remove Any Overhanging Limbs From Trees – If these snap, they can careen straight into your roof causing damage or even failure.
- Clean Your Gutters Out – Your gutters transport water away from your roof, but are easily clogged by leaves. Clean them to ensure water has an easy path away from your home and consider leaf guards to prevent further clogging.
- Get an Inspection – As stated earlier, a roofer can identify any damage existing on your roof to repair and fortify it before your home gets further damage.
