Fall is an essential time to conduct roof repairs. With winter just around the corner, it is important to ensure that your roof is in optimal condition. In case your roof needs repair, it would be wise to make necessary improvements in preparation of the weather conditions. Here are some fall roofing tips by Rock Solid Exteriors, your Michigan roofing contractor company.
Inspection is an important aspect of your roof assessment. You might decide to carry out the review yourself. However, it is always important to get a professional opinion. Be sure to hire licensed roofers, such as Rock Solid Exteriors, to identify flaws in your roof that need attention. Your roofer will determine small issues that could be fixed to avert costly repairs. They will take the time to properly inspect your roof’s field, walls, penetrations, coping cap, flashings, and curbs. Rock Solid Exteriors will fix any identified issues as long as it is within your inspection budget.
Cut down dead trees and branches near your home.
Dead trees that are leaning towards your home could fall on your roof and cause massive damage. It is crucial to identify these potential risks and cut down these trees. Trimming healthy trees is also encouraged as this reduces the debris that accumulates in the gutters.
Clean your gutters.
Gutters often end up clogged due to tree nuts, tree needles and dead leaves that fall on your roof. This plant material blocks the drainage through your gutters and causes accumulation of water. This accumulation could further lead to the growth of mold as well as cracking of the roof and ceiling. To prevent cracking, a regular clearing of the debris from your gutters is encouraged.
Installation of Gutter Guards
Gutter guards are efficient in preventing plant debris from accumulating in the drainage system. They are extremely affordable and have small holes that allow water to pass through. Small debris might be able to go through the holes, but larger debris will eventually dry up and be blown away. These guards will save you a lot of cleaning and the potential damage to your roof that comes with clogged gutters.
In preparing your roof during the fall for winter seasons, you should implement all these tips to keep your home safe from potential threats. At Rock Solid Exteriors, we are willing to guide you as you make your plan to ensure you achieve the utmost safety for your home.
