Preparing Your Roof for Fall and Winter
As fall approaches and we gear up for winter, it’s important to make sure that your home is ready for whatever weather comes your way. One of the most important aspects of your home to prepare for winter is your roof. It’s the first line of defense for your home, so it’s crucial that it’s in good condition. In this blog post, we’re going to go over some steps that you can take to prepare your roof for the fall and winter seasons.
Clean the Gutters
The first step in preparing your roof for the cooler months is to clean out your gutters. Over the spring and summer months, leaves, debris, and other material can build up in your gutters, creating blockages that can cause your gutters to overflow. If this happens, the water can cause damage to your roof, siding, and trim. Additionally, the added weight of the debris can cause your gutters to become loose or collapse. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to keep your gutters clear of debris. At Ruts To Ridges, we offer professional gutter cleaning services to ensure that your gutters are ready to handle the rainfall of the upcoming seasons.
Have Your Shingles Cleaned
The next step in preparing your roof for fall and winter is having your shingles cleaned. Our soft wash roof clean service removes stains and debris that can hide the true condition of your shingles. With a clean roof, it’s easier to spot any missing, cracked, curled, or frayed shingles. Damaged shingles can cause leaks, so it’s important to conduct a thorough inspection and replace any that are in need of repair. Here at Ruts To Ridges, we offer state-of-the-art roof cleaning services to ensure that your roof is in the best possible condition.
Inspect the Flashing
In addition to inspecting the shingles, it’s important to inspect the flashing on your roof. Flashing is the material that seals the roof against walls, vents, and other objects that penetrate the roof. Over time, flashing can become corroded, loose, or damaged, and this can cause water to penetrate your home. During your inspection, make sure to check the flashing around vents, pipes, and chimneys. If you notice any issues, it’s best to contact a professional to repair it.
