The roof is essential to your home’s protection against severe weather and harsh elements. It keeps your family and belongings safe. This is why you need to make sure your roof is in good shape no matter the season.
Ensure your roof’s year-round efficiency with these easy tips from your trusted residential and commercial roofing contractor.
Get a Roof Inspection
Have your roof inspected at least twice a year and after big storms to make sure it’s in good condition. It’s a good idea to get an inspection in the spring if you’ve experienced consistent freezing temperatures. Make sure you address roofing problems as soon as your roofer finds them.
Clean Your Gutters
Clean your gutters regularly, especially during the fall. Debris can block water and prevent it from draining from your roof. Standing water can result in leaks and rot. Avoid costly roof repair bills by keeping your gutters clean and also check if they are secured properly.
Trim Nearby Trees
Overhanging branches that brush against your roof can affect its overall condition. Falling branches can puncture your roof or damage the shingles. Constant contact between limbs and the roof can result in unnecessary wear and tear. Trim branches of trees surrounding your roof to minimize debris buildup.
Check Your Attic
Examine your attic from time to time and check for signs of water damage. Mold, leaks and insulation damage can indicate that something is wrong with your roof.
Leave It to Professionals
Walking around the roof is dangerous, especially for those who aren’t trained to do so. You can damage the shingles and other roofing components. There’s also a chance of a slip-and-fall accident, which you want to avoid at all costs.
