Keeping your roofing system in good condition is a must, and with fall in full swing, performing the necessary maintenance should be on top of your to-do list. This way, you can prepare it for the harsh winter weather ahead. Here are some best practices to observe when tackling this project.
Clean Your Gutter System
Autumn leaves may be a sight to behold, but they can be an annoyance. They don’t just land on your backyard, but also on your roof. Ignore them and your gutter system will get clogged and not function as intended. Take advantage of the fine weather and remove the leaves as soon as you find them collecting on top of your home. After doing this chore, consider investing in a gutter protection system—they prevent clogs from leaves and other debris while ensuring proper water flow.
Hire a Pro for a Roof Inspection
Just because you don’t see roof issues from the ground doesn’t mean you no longer hire a roofing professional who can perform an inspection. Delaying an inspection could lead to costly repairs later on, especially during the winter when the hidden problems tend to worsen. With the pro getting up your roof, even the subtlest of issues can be identified. Then, you’ll be informed of what needs to be done before the whole system gets compromised.
Check the Attic
Check the attic for any water damage or other signs of leaks or general wear and tear. Take note of the areas where you find issues and turn to your roofing pro to get them fixed. To ensure better indoor comfort for the next few months, consider adding more insulation to the attic.
