Prepare Your Roof For Fall
Fall is almost here! Now is the time to prepare your roof for the fall season. Check out these tips on what you can do to get your home ready for fall.
Assess Seasonal Damage
Spring and summer can cause damage due to heavy wind and rainstorms. Debris can cause your shingles to be damaged or the discovery of unsealed cracks that could allow the pests in, it’s better to check out potential seasonal damage regularly and make repairs.
Autumn means leaves are falling. Dead leaves can clog your gutters and cause damage. When your gutters are full of debris, they do not perform the way they are supposed to. They can hold water in place, allowing it to wear away at your roof and create rot. Clean your gutters regularly to allow the water to flow freely.
Check Windows & Door Seals
Now is the time to take a look at the weather stripping and caulking on your windows and doors. With cooler weather coming, you don’t want the warm air leaking out of your house. Air leaks are not just drafty – they’re costly! Check the seals on your windows and doors and determine whether they are allowing air to escape.
