Fall is the perfect time for roof inspections and maintenance with a Coralville roofing contractor to see how it did through the summer storms and to get it prepared for winter. Did you know that your roof is the main defender of your home against the elements? You betcha. All the goodness that winter will bring us this year like lots of ice, wind, and snow. If your roof has damage that needs to be repaired, now is the best time to have it done before winter gets here. In the meantime, check out these maintenance tips to help you increase the lifespan of your roof.
Clean your Gutters – Water will splash back onto the roof when gutters are clogged and unable to handle the amount of water that is needed to divert it safely away. This can cause cracking, mold, and other difficulties down the road. Cleaning and checking the flow rate of your gutters each season to verify that they are clean and draining well.
Trim your Trees – To help prevent damage to your home and roof it is suggested to keep all tree branches and limbs ten feet or more away from your home. Accomplishing this at the beginning of the fall will also help lower the number of leaves that end up in your gutters and could create a clog.
Schedule a Fall Roof Inspection- Hiring a professional Coralville roof repair will give you the certainty that your entire roofing system has been examined accurately, and thoroughly. Any required repairs are much better to perform before snow and ice arrive, and waiting too long will only make problems worse and more expensive.
