Do we sound like a broken record? We said it last month and we’ll probably say it again next month and yet, here you are with debris, twigs, and leaves still stuffing your gutters like Christmas stockings.
Your roof will not survive the winter in good condition if it’s carrying the extra weight of blocked gutters which cannot do their job when the rain and snow of winter follow.
If you are like most of America and do not relish the thought of cleaning out your gutters, let SPC Roofing clear away the debris off all and make sure your roof is prepped for winter instead.
This goes right along with the previous tip. One of the reasons that your gutters are filled is probably because you have trees too close to your home – or their branches are hanging over your roof. This causes their leaves, smaller branches, acorns, and more to fall directly onto your roof and clog your gutters plus add extra weight to your roof structure!
Don’t let a bad storm drop heavy branches and cave in your roof. Instead, use preventative measures and trim back your trees before the seasons change. That way you can rest easy knowing you are safe, and you have prepared your roof for winter.
If you want an idea of what’s going on with your roof, the attic is a really great place to start and you can even check it without going out into the rain, snow, or wind! From your attic, you can check the insulation, drafts, leaks, and even temperature to get a good idea of how the exterior is doing without ever stepping foot outside.
Make sure you add ‘the attic check’ to your seasonal home-check this year!
If you have any areas on your roof where sealant is used (chimney, antenna, etc.) then you could be at risk for a sealant issue if you do not check those areas often. Instead of waiting for a problem to become visible from the inside, make sure you check these potential issues before the winter chill sets in!
Don’t want to crawl around on your roof? Ask SPC Construction & Roofing to come and check your roof and sealant instead!
You might be surprised to know that many people let their roof go years between checks, even free checks! Instead of risking a small issue becoming a huge problem, let the experts at SPC Construction & Roofing give you a free inspection so you can know exactly what’s going on upthere – without ever leaving the warmth of your home.
