Keep Those Gutters Clean

When the leaves begin to fall around your home, you know it’s time to take a look at your gutters. Clean gutters are needed to keep the water flowing off your roof. If your gutters aren’t properly cleaned it can lead to cracking, mold and severe damage that might not be seen right away. Although cleaning gutters is a task that most homeowners can handle themselves, it can be beneficial to call in a professional to ensure that the job is done safely and properly!

Trim the Trees Around Your Yard

Trimming the trees around your yard will help prevent debris from falling and damaging your roof. As overgrown trees scrape the top of your roof on windy days, it will eventually begin to strip off layers of asphalt from your shingles. By trimming your tree limbs you are preventing them from damaging your roof, allowing your roof to maintain it’s visual appeal and effectiveness.

Pre-Winter Roof Inspection

Roofs are a huge investment, and annual roof inspections can actually save you money. Roof inspections are meant to help homeowners catch problems before they become major issues. Fall is the perfect time to get your roof inspected, while there is no snow or ice that could prevent any problems from being fixed.

Roof Maintenance

If your roof inspection indicates that you need repair work in a certain part of your roof, make sure you take care of the problem as soon as possible! You want to make sure that your roof is good-to-go ahead of the unpredictable winter weather. So make sure you make your home’s roof a top priority this Fall!
