Fall Roof Maintenance: Best Practices to Observe

Fall is now in full swing, which means it’s that time of the year again to perform some home maintenance to avoid damage in your home in the coming months. That said, roof upkeep must be a priority on your to-do list. Here are the best practices to observe when it comes to maintaining your roofing system this fall.

Clean Gutters

Autumn leaves fall off the trees and land not just on the ground, but also on your roof and gutters. Disregarding them will create clogs, preventing water from flowing toward the drains when it rains. Take advantage of the fine weather to remove leaves and other debris from your roof. If you find cleaning tedious, you can invest in gutter guards to prevent blockages, making future cleanups faster and easier.

Have Your Roof Inspected

Don’t make the mistake of delaying an inspection just because you don’t see an apparent issue on your roof. By merely observing the roof from the ground, you are ignoring obscure problems that can worsen over time. Only an experienced roofer in your local area can identify even the subtlest of issues and help you understand what needs to be done before the whole system gets compromised.

Check the Attic

Get up your attic and perform an inspection. Check for any water damage or other signs that leaks or general wear and tear may have caused to the roof’s exterior. Take note of where you find the damage on the attic, and turn to your local roofer to have the issues fixed. Also, make sure that the attic has enough insulation to keep your indoors warm during the winter.
