The summer heat is slowly starting to fade away, which means that fall is right around the corner. Now is the perfect time to start planning your to-do list for inside and outside of your home. Fall roof maintenance is critical to make sure that the structure of your home is ready for the snow and ice to come. Here are some of our best fall roof maintenance tips.
Trim the Trees
Trees add a lot of beauty to most properties, but they can also create dangerous situations when they are growing too close to your roof or there are branches hanging over the surface of your roof. Before snow and ice add weight to these branches that might make them snap and fall on your home, it is a good idea to trim them back as part of your fall roof maintenance.
Clean Out the Gutters
Fall leaves might be beautiful on your trees, but they are anything but beautiful in your gutters. Your gutters play a critical role in the overall functionality of your roof, and when your gutters are clogged, it can lead to problems with water damage and even harm the structure of your roof. As a result, plan on cleaning your gutters as part of your fall roof maintenance.
Schedule an Inspection
If you can’t remember the last time that you had a roof inspection, it’s a good sign that you are due for one. Scheduling a roof inspection as part of your fall roof maintenance is a wonderful way to make sure that there are no problems present that you haven’t noticed yet. Many homeowners do not realize that something is wrong with their roofs until permanent damage has occurred, which can be incredibly costly.
Take Care of Repairs
Finally, if you know that something is wrong with your roof or your inspection brings something to your attention, have repairs completed during your fall roof maintenance. Fall is a wonderful time to take care of these repairs and make sure that your roof is ready for the weight of snow and ice.
