Autumn is here - Fall Roof Maintenance

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 2:11 PM
The cool, crisp air and colorful falling leaves are a sure sign that the Fall season has arrived. It’s also a reminder to check for short and long term roof maintenance needs.
What can you do now to prepare for what’s coming (winter) so that your roof is at its best?

First of all, take a climb up onto your roof to get a birds-eye view and assess what might be needed. Use your binoculars if you can’t do the climb. Check around the chimney and look for cracks or splits. Check the stacks, vents, expansion joints, walls and perimeters. Maybe the whirlybirds need tightening.

Trees can be a menace to your roof if overhanging limbs are rubbing against your shingles. Make sure there are no limbs touching your roof. You will want to look for loose shingles, as well as any sign of critters (squirrels, raccoons, possums and such). If you see any sign of ‘scat’, spray a critter repellant on the roof to ward off any would-be winter visitors vying for a way into the attic.

Check under your patio and carport to be sure there are no leaks, which could indicate a bigger problem. And of course, that includes checking inside the house in case there are any water stains on or near the ceiling.

Spring and Summer debris has likely accumulated on your roof and in roof pan areas, behind skylights, chimneys, soffits, and in valleys.  The big concern with debris is it decays the roof by staying damp.  Debris will also divert water to unwanted areas and can dam up rain, and in many cases can penatrate your flashings.  This causes the decking to rot and black mold to grow.  Further, damage to your ceilings and interior of the home is now a big concern.  Last, but by all means not least, clean those gutters! Of course, that really should be a year-round task, but definitely a ‘must-do’ for the autumn months. 

If you are not comfortable getting on your roof or unsure of what to look for, call us today for an inspection.  Debris is minor trouble to remedy and well will profide you with an exact condition of your roof and all gutters, downspouts, and penetrations.  We are set to protect your investment.  I hope this helps, folks! Thank you, Steve / Roof Doctor, Inc.
