The days are getting shorter and the temperature is falling. It’s fall, which means it’s time to make sure your roof is in prime condition.
In this article from local residential roofing company Berry Roofing, Inc., you’ll find three key roof maintenance tips for the fall.
1. Check Gutters and Downspouts.
This two-part inspection not only prepares your roof for the fall season but also for the coming winter. While falling leaves are beautiful, they create a problem when they land in your gutters. Making sure that your gutters and downspouts are clear of leaves eliminates chances of clogs and sagging. Be on the lookout for moss as well, as it can lift the shingles off your roof.
2. Trim Nearby Trees
You can’t prevent the leaves from falling, but you can trim the trees around your roof to lessen the chances of needing roof repair or worse, a roof replacement. Just make sure to ask your neighbors to trim theirs too if the limbs of the trees within their property lines make their way over to yours.
3. Conduct a Roofing Inspection
Is your roof in optimal condition? Does it need repairs? Have a professional assess the state of your roof and perform the appropriate modifications. You can also examine your roof yourself from the ground with a pair of binoculars and report any damage you spot to your roofer. .
