As the relentless heat of summer fades and cooler temperatures roll in, it is the perfect time to do routine maintenance to your roof. After all, winter will be here before you know it! Here are a few tips that will assure your roof is in perfect shape for the winter:
Inspect: Take a look at your roof’s current state and make note of any cracking shingles or broken roof tiles. Be sure to contact Sate Roofing Company to take a closer look and perform a thorough inspection.
Trim: During the fall trees not only begin to shed their leaves but also shed limbs, branches, and twigs. When the weather turns colder and high winds affect your area, any overhanging limbs and branches can become dislodged and land directly on your roof. By having them removed, future damage and accidents can be prevented
Clean: As the trees begin to shed their leaves cleaning your gutters becomes essential. This includes the removal of any existing twigs, dirt, and other debris that may have built up since your last cleaning. Make sure all drainage areas are unblocked by leaves and debris. Do not try to remove excessive debris with a water hose as it may cause downspouts to clog and the affect the gutter system.
