Maintaining the roof is an important step to ensuring it lasts past its expected lifespan and performs as well as it should. Other than that, it’s also part of being a responsible homeowner and, therefore, your duty. While it’s possible to do some maintenance work on your roof year-round, the fall season is probably the time when you need to do it the most.
Some homeowners tend to make the mistake of thinking that, since they don’t see the damage with the naked eye and at ground level, then there’s nothing wrong with the roof. However, keep in mind that not all kinds of roofing damage is visible to the untrained eye. This is where roof inspections can help. Before the winter season even arrives, make sure to have your roof inspected by a pro so they can identify these issues as soon as possible.
Once your roofer finds something wrong with your roof during the inspection process, no matter how minor, make sure to have the issues repaired immediately. That way, your home is adequately prepared and comfortable for the winter season.
During the fall season, debris like leaves and twigs tend to fall at a faster rate than usual. With that in mind, make sure to have them cleared before winter to prevent ice dams from forming on your gutters and affecting your roof. This is a hazardous task to do on your own, however, so consider calling a professional to clean your gutters for you instead.
