Fall Roof Maintenance
It’s already that time of year again… Welcome to fall! Besides the joy this season brings, Fall is also an important time for roof maintenance. Here are some tips that you may find helpful in the upkeep of your roof.
- Clean Gutters– Gutter cleaning is a must, especially this time of year. It’s important to keep the debris cleared out of your gutters to ensure that water can flow through them properly. Water that continuously flows onto your roof can cause mold, cracking and other more extensive damage to both your gutters and the roof itself.
- Trim Trees– If your trees are trimmed back, less rubbish will fall onto your roof. Too many leaves and branches on your roof can cause moisture buildup which can lead to more roof related issues like mold.
- Gutter Guards– Gutter Guards are caps that keep debris from getting in. They go over the gutters so that only water can enter. This option will save you a lot of time and possibly money in the long run.
- Assess Needed Repairs– If your gutters are cracked or loose, it is important to get these fixed to ensure that they are working properly. When the water does not flow correctly, it will run down the side of your home, eventually leaving unsightly staining.
Remember to always practice safety when you are performing tasks on or near your roof. Feel free to contact ONEWAY ROOFING with any questions or concerns about your roof. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful season!
