Fall is coming and your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects you from the elements, keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and adds to your home's curb appeal. That's why it's important to maintain your roof regularly, and fall is a great time to do it.
Here are a few reasons why fall is a good time for roof maintenance:
The weather is usually mild in the fall, so it's a good time to have us insepct your roof without having to worry about extreme heat or cold.
The leaves have started to fall, so it's a good time to clear them away from your roof. Leaves can clog gutters and downspouts, which can lead to water damage.
The winter weather is coming, so it's a good time to check for any damage to your roof that could be caused by snow and ice.
Here are some specific things you can do to maintain your roof in the fall:
Clear away leaves and debris from your roof. This will help to prevent water damage and make it easier for snow and ice to slide off your roof.
Check for cracks or missing shingles. If you see any damage, let us know to repair it as soon as possible.
Inspect your gutters and downspouts. Make sure they are clear of debris and that they are draining properly.
Look for signs of leaks. If you see any water stains on your ceiling or walls, it could be a sign of a leak. Have us inspect your roof to find the source of the leak and make repairs.
