In a previous blog post, we discussed the importance of maintaining and preserving your roof to enhance its functionality during the fall season. Many easy steps can be done to help strengthen your roof, so it is strong and safe for the changing seasons. Below we list helpful tips to follow to prepare your roof for fall.
Check Attic Air Flow
It is important that your attic has sufficient airflow and ventilation to help preserve the health of your roof. We encourage our clients to inspect and repair any areas in your attic that show signs of poor ventilation.
Remove Loose and Overhanging Branches
Removing loose and overhanging branches that surround your home is vital to protecting your home and roof. During the fall, the falling of leaves and limbs can cause damage to your home and gutters.
Schedule a Professional Inspection
We encourage our clients to receive a comprehensive and professional inspection to check your roof for any damages and needed repairs before the fall season.

Summer is coming to an end, and many important things must be done to your roof to help preserve and maintain its functionality during the fall season. Fall is the transition period where leaves and trees change to prepare for the winter season. Below we offer helpful tips to prepare and strengthen your roof for fall.
During the summer, your roof has collected a wide variety of debris and dirt due to its exterior location. With increased summer storms, your roof may have a variety of debris such as seeds, grass, twigs, leaves, and small branches. It is important to remove all debris before the fall and winter seasons because these items can begin to collect moisture, which could cause mold and algae growth along your roof.
It is important your gutters remain clean and free from debris to allow proper drainage. Allowing your gutters to remain filled with leaves and other debris before the fall season can cause clogs in the downspouts. Clogged downspouts can cause water to overflow onto your roof, causing possible moisture damage.
