Seasonal Roof Repair: Best Practices To Prepare for Fall!
Think Ahead Now, Your Roof Will Thank You Later
As summer winds to a close, it’s time to start thinking about seasonal roof repair services for the fall! Leaves, changing weather, more robust winds, and fallen branches all pose a significant potential threat to the current condition of your roof. Especially considering the fact that some components of your roof may have expanded, contracted, or even become thinned due to sun exposure and the summer heat.

No matter what you may find yourself up against as seasons change, we are confident that we can handle it all. In this article, we’ll be sharing a few of our expert tips on how to best prepare for the new season. As always, feel free to reach out and give us a call if you have any additional questions or if you’d like to request a service. Our technicians are always available to serve you.
Without further ado, here’s a list of our top three best practices to prepare for fall.
1.Trim Your Trees
We know that right off the bat, this sounds like much more work, and we get where this can be incredibly time-consuming and frustrating, but trust us. This’ll save you big time in the long run! In the same way that the autumn leaves fall to the ground, they also fall on your roof! Think about how many piles of leaves are raked from your yard every season. Think about how they become compacted, wet, and heavy. As much of a hassle as it is on the ground level, imagine just how cumbersome they are sitting atop your home or business!
Trimming the trees around your property is a great way to curb a lot of the excess work incurred if you hadn’t, and it’s a great way to keep your roof intact in the long run. Piles and piles of heavy, compressed leaves overhead will weaken your roof and cause damages that could’ve otherwise been avoided.
2.Clean Your Gutters
We know what you’re thinking, “Again with all the work?” Unfortunately, yes. A few of our tips will require some up front attention to prevent any long term damages to your roof. Trust us, you’ll be happy that you put in the up-front leg work to better prepare for seasonal roof repair services.
At the end of the day, you’ll want to clean your gutters for some of the same reasons you need to trim your trees– leaves! Though beautiful, they really can cause serious issues if left unattended. Packed leaves and debris inside of your gutters can cause clogs that could lead to ice dams as the weather changes and ice begins to form. Your gutters are an important part of your roof, as they provide a valuable pathway for water and excess debris to escape. If they become clogged, your roof will ultimately retain unnecessary water and debris which can lead to mold growth, algae, and other build-up that will negatively impact your roof in the long run.
3.Schedule A Roof Inspection
Now that you’ve gotten your trees trimmed and your gutters cleaned, it’s time to have your local professionals take a look at your roof! It’s important to schedule these kinds of inspections as seasons change so that you can remain aware of any weak points, holes, dents, scrapes, or unusual growth atop your home or business. Any of these things pose a great threat risk to your property’s integrity and could send unwanted water or debris tumbling in. A thorough roof inspection will make you aware of any areas that need to be addressed before the new season sets in.
