There are tons of reasons why fall is the optimal time for roof maintenance. Not only is it important to stay on top of maintenance with all the foliage falling, but inspecting your roof this autumn can help catch issues before winter kicks in and makes matters worse.
Here are a few things you should check off your list this fall to ensure your roof stays in tip top shape:
1. Clear Gutters and Downspouts
With leaves falling this autumn, it’s important to keep your gutters and downspouts clean and clear to prevent issues like buildup, leaks, and more. And – with regular maintenance – you’ll be more likely to catch any current issues like pooling water or weakened brackets before they become a bigger problem.
2. Install Gutter Guards
After ensuring your gutters are clean, install a guard to reduce the amount of work required to keep them clean. Gutter guards are an easy way to minimize maintenance and ensure the longevity of your gutters – both of which will be much appreciated as more leaves come down throughout the season.
3. Trim trees
Do you see a theme with leaves and trees? Trim back branches that seem to be getting too close to your home to keep your roof safe. This also helps avoid extra leaves clogging your gutters.
4. Schedule an inspection
Above all else, now is the prime time to inspect your roof. If your roof needs replacing or even minor repairs, you want to be sure to catch it now before snow, ice and cold temperatures make it more difficult to address. Schedule an inspection today and get the peace of mind you need to enjoy the rest of the season!
