Prepare Your Roof for Fall - Seasonal Transition Tips!
Have you noticed tree branches drifting close to your roof?
Are leaves piling up in your gutters?
As the summer draws to a close and the cooler winds of fall begin to rustle the leaves, it's time to shift focus to protecting your home during the changing seasons.
Here are our seasonal transition tips:
1. Clean Those Gutters:
Leaves and debris tend to accumulate in your gutters. Clogged gutters can lead to water pooling on your roof, causing potential water damage and structural issues.
2. Trim Overhanging Branches:
During fall, leaves and branches pose a threat to your roof. Trim any overhanging branches to prevent leaves from accumulating and trapping moisture on your roof's surface or branches taking out shingles.
3. Check the Attic Insulation:
Proper attic insulation is important for regulating temperature and moisture levels in your home. As the weather cools down, adequate insulation will keep your home warm, reduce energy costs, and prevent ice damming on your roof.
4. Examine Flashing and Sealants:
The flashing and sealants around vents, chimneys, and skylights play a huge role in preventing water breaches. Have our roofing experts inspect these areas and make any necessary repairs or replacements to maintain a watertight seal.
5. Schedule an Inspection:
The best way to guarantee your roof is prepared for the next season is to schedule an inspection. A professional will be able to see things that the untrained eye may miss. Don’t risk missing the early warning signs of damage!
