As the leaves start to change color and the air becomes lighter, you need to prepare your roof for what is to come. Not only does it need to be ready to tackle the summer heat, and the winter cold, but fall brings its own challenges, and it’s essential to ensure that your roof is able to handle anything that comes its way. Molandes Roofing has 4 tips on how to prepare your roof for the fall. We are also only a call away. So, if you need an inspection or a regular maintenance plan, our team is ready to help.
Your gutters need to be cleaned regularly, for they get clogged easily. That is especially true in the fall. Leaves that are falling from trees end up inside your gutters. If they aren’t removed right away, water can sog them up which makes them even more challenging to take care of. But it’s something that needs to be done.
Get those soggy leaves out of your gutters as soon as possible. If your gutters are clogged up, water doesn’t have a method for getting off of your roof. Instead, the water backs up onto your roof and can get under the shingles causing moisture damage or leaks. Although you can clean the gutters yourself, our team can also take care of them in a timely manner.
Remove Overhanging Branches
Although trees add beauty to your property, they can get in the way. They aren’t much of a problem until they start to threaten your roof or your family. If you have branches that hang over your roof, the best thing to do is to trim them. Since these months weren’t as rainy as usual, we can expect these fall months to be wetter than usual. Therefore, your roof needs to be prepared for thunderstorms. If there are branches near your roof, they can get blown off and damage your shingles or creates holes in your roof.
Your roof gets dirty throughout the year. It accumulates dirt, leaves, dust, and other debris. This type of debris includes grass, seeds, twigs, and small branches. If the debris isn’t removed before fall rolls around, it will start collecting moisture. This results in algae and mold growth and even rotting. You can clean the debris yourself, but you need to practice extreme caution. You can use an air blower or a broom. However, the best course of action is to hire Molandes Roofing. Our team will clean and maintain your roof in an efficient manner.
