Today is the official first day of fall! Say goodbye to summer for a long time…. With Fall here, everyone is home from vacation and getting ready for more time at their home with their families. This time of the year is the perfect time to get your house ready for winter and there is no more important aspect of your home than your roof! We put together a blog that covers the top fall roofing maintenance tips, enjoy.
1. Trim back your trees:
With heavy and wet rain and snow right around the corner, you want to make sure that you don’t have any trees hanging over your home. These branches are just waiting to break off and cause damage to your roof. So, be sure that you have these trees, to get them cut back!
2. Clean your gutters:
This should be an automatic fall maintenance task that all homeowners already know, but be sure to clean your gutters! Whether you do it yourself or you hire a professional, having clean gutters going into the winter is crucial to the integrity of your roof.
3. Install Gutter Guards:
To greatly reduce the amount of gutter cleaning you need, think about getting gutter guards! They will make your life so much easier.
4. Pre-Winter Roof Inspection:
It is never a bad idea to have an expert come by your house to inspect your roof before winter. It is much easier to fix and repair issues on your roof before winter comes through rather than get a more damaged roof when the first storm comes through!
