The weather is getting cooler, and before you know it, winter will be here again. Before the coldest months hit, you have to make sure your home’s exterior, especially the roof, is in good shape.
Complete these roof maintenance tasks this fall, and save yourself from costly roof repair costs.
Not all roof problems are visible from the ground. It is not easy to detect early signs of a roof issue, especially if you don’t have training. Also, it’s not safe to climb up onto the roof on your own. Hire a local roofing contractor to inspect your roof to identify small issues before they turn into a major expense.
Immediately repair or replace any broken, missing or damaged shingles. Waiting too long before addressing repairs can cause snow, ice and wind to further damage your roof and other parts of your home. Our experts in exterior services are trained to handle all roof repairs.
Leaves can settle on your roof and into your gutters. Debris will block your gutters when they begin to decompose. Remove leaves as soon as possible when you start to notice excessive amounts on your roof. It would also help to invest in gutter guards to prevent blockages and to make cleaning easier.
Look for any indication of leaks or water damage in the attic. Check the walls for dark-colored stains due to leaks as well as for any signs of mold growth.
