The fall season is one of the most eventful seasons of all; from getting your kids adjusted to their school schedule to stacking firewood in preparation for the autumn chill. Fall is also the perfect time to begin preparing your roof before the harsh conditions of winter strike. Ensuring your roof is in top condition in the fall will relieve you of stress in the wintertime; knowing your family and home’s structure are safe.
At All Pro Roofing, we want you to enjoy your fall and with a few helpful tips on roofing maintenance, you can get back to enjoying the season in no time. Here are four tips for you:
Clean Those Gutters
The beauty of leaves falling in autumn is a wonderful sight, but those leaves getting stuck in your roof’s gutters are not. Clean out your gutters to ensure proper water flow off your roof. When gutters become clogged, water simply splashes back onto the roof, causing a buildup and eventually leading to cracks or mould. Leaves can pile up during this time, so it’s important to keep an eye on the gutters regularly.
Trim The Trees In Your Yard
Branches and other debris fall from the trees in your yard often, but during the fall season especially. Branches, pine needles and cones can damage your home’s roof and result in costly repairs. Overgrown trees can also scratch the top of the roof on windy days, which can lead to layers of your asphalt being stripped from the shingles. Trimming the trees helps to prevent damage and your roof will continue to look visually appealing.
Inspect The Attic
Inspecting the roof prior to winter can also help you detect any leaks in the attic. If there is any mould, warped wood or even stained insulation in the attic, you may require a roofing professional's assistance immediately. Roof damage can lead to moisture entering through the roof to the inside of the home. If the moisture builds up on the inside of the home, mould can form which can harm the homeowners.
Annual roof inspections are apart of homecare maintenance and can ultimately save you money. Roof inspections help homeowners become aware of any roofing problems before they can cause any further damage. All Pro Roofing offers proactive roofing maintenance for your home to solve any issues and advise you of roofing care. Fall is the best time to have your roof inspected, while there’s no ice or snow to hide roofing issues.
