Maintenance for the Autumn Season

Posted October 18, 2021 in Uncategorized

The autumn season ushers in a season of leaves falling, lower temperatures, and apple juice. It carries with it the assurance that cold weather isn’t far away. The following are  fall maintenance recommendations to ensure  your roof remains in shape throughout these cooler months.

Address Any Issues That Have Been Found

If you have an issue with your roof, the cold weather will not make it any better. Fixing your roof is a great way to give yourself a sense of tranquility, especially when the winter comes. Repairs should be combined with a No-Leak Guarantee. This will ensure that your roof will remain waterproof until the next Autumn.

Get Your Roof Checked by a Professional

Your roof needs regular maintenance to ensure that it remains in good working order. Hiring a professional to evaluate your roof might help you discover issues before they become pricey. Your roof is susceptible due to the imminent winter and freezing temperatures.

Pruning Your Trees

The majority of the time, leaves are in the gutters due to trees hanging over the roof. Pruning back trees can help lessen the amount of leaves that fall. It will keep branches from scraping against your roof and causing damage. Cutting back trees also helps to prevent moss and algae from growing on your shingles, which can harm them and reduce their lifespan.

Get Your Gutters Clean

The colorful leaves are pleasing to look at, however they also pose a danger. Litter as well as leaves are one of the most typical causes of gutter blockage. Roofs are built to drain water, which in most cases runs into a gutter system. Water can accumulate on the roof through obstructed gutters in addition to downspouts, damaging shingles, permeating through underlayment, and causing problems. Washing your downspouts and gutters ensures that water is channeled away from your roof in the appropriate direction.

Invest in Gutter Guards

Gutter guards are really inexpensive and will save you a lot of time when it comes to tidying up your gutters. They can easily fit over your gutters to keep leaves out of your home. Tiny holes in the caps allow water to pass through, however huge debris will dry up and fly elsewhere. Afterwards, you won’t have to clean as much.

Inspect Your Attic

Your attic’s condition might have a direct impact on the quality of your roof. Assess your attic for vents in the eaves. This will allow you to determine whether the insulation is concealing them. If that’s the case, make sure to open these vents so that air can exit and ice dams don’t collect on the roof during the winter months. Ensure that the eave vents as well as ridge are clear of vegetation and other debris. If you believe you have mice, birds, or other unwanted creatures in your attic,  have the situation fixed before the winter arrives. They can gnaw openings in your roof and cause severe damage, which can be expensive to fix. If you see any of the issues mentioned, consider getting a new one attic.

It’ll get colder sooner than you expect!  Check to see if your attic is properly secured and prepped for the upcoming cold season. Use either spray foam or mineral wool insulation to effectively seal your completed attic.
