Four Fall Roofing Tips for Homeowners
Your roof is a vital part of your home. It is responsible for keeping you warm and dry throughout the year. However, many homeowners routinely neglect their roofs. With a little TLC and maintenance, you can help your roof last for years.
Follow these four fall roofing tips this season:
- Trim Trees. Now is the perfect time to trim trees back and away from the house. If the branches on your trees are too close to your roof, trim them back now. This will prevent unnecessary roof damage from any winter storms.
- Clean Out Gutters. Your gutters take quite a lot, especially in the fall when leaves can clog it up. Clogged gutters can cause cracked shingles and other damage to your roof. They can also result in mold building up on your roof or on the siding.
- Visually Inspect Roof. Walk the perimeter of your home and visually inspect your roof for signs of damage. Look for damaged or buckled shingles. Look for signs of mold, cracks, or other spots that might become a problem. It is easier to repair small issues before they become a big problem.
- Call a Professional. If you notice signs of damage, wear or mold, it is important to call a professional roofing contractor. At Elevated Roofing, we provide a free, no-obligation roof assessment. We will examine your roof closely and help you identify issues while they may still be small. We can provide you with a photo inspection report of our findings. Repairing your roof now will help protect your home during harsh winter months.
