3 Tips To Prepare Your Roof For Fall

Huntington Beach Roof InspectionNow that the end of summer is in sight, kids are going back to school, and temperatures are starting to mellow out a bit more, we know that fall is right around the corner. Fall is a wonderful time of year, filled with plenty to do, plenty to see, and giving us a bit of calm before the storm of the holiday season comes barreling in. With fall being just over the horizon, however, now is the time to make sure things are in order around your home and your house as a whole is prepared for what's to come in the coming months. One area of your home, in particular, that can only benefit from some attention this fall is your home's roof. To help make sure that you have everything you need to prepare your roof for the coming months, our team of skilled Orange County roofing contractors have taken the time to put together this short list that highlights just a few of the helpful tips we've compiled over the years to ensure that your roof is prepared for everything the coming season has to offer.

Clean Your Gutters

Anytime leaves and other natural debris find their way into your home's gutters, you always run the risk of them creating a clog. Clogs are bad news for your gutters as they can cause water to pool on your roof, seeping down under your shingles, or even causing damage to your shingles, trim, and siding. Additionally, with the weight of all of the wet leaves and other debris, you also run the risk of having your gutters break away from the side of your home completely, which can be an expensive fix. One of the best things you can do for you gutters this fall is to either thoroughly clean them out, or have a professional do so if you aren't entirely comfortable on the ladder.

Clear Off Debris

While a lot of the debris that finds its way up onto your roof will eventually find its way into your gutters where it can be removed, there is some that winds up just lingering on the surface of your home, and this fall, it is important to make sure that anything still sitting up on your roof is cleared away. Even small collections of leaves and other organic debris can hold onto moisture, and can eventually lead to mold and mildew, which can start to deteriorate your roof's surface over time. If you aren't entirely confident getting up and walking around your roof, it is always a better idea to hire a team of skilled professionals who can get the job done without causing any damage in the process.

Inspect For Damages & Deterioration

Once your roof is clean, it is time to get it inspected. During the course of getting your roof inspected, it is important to look out for any areas with missing shingles, any cracked, curled, or frayed areas, and especially any kind of damage that might be present in the flashing around your vent stacks, chimneys, or skylights. Catching any small leaks that might be present now can be a great way to save yourself time, money, and headache in the coming months. Get some peace of mind this fall with a professional roof inspection.
