Roof Inspections

Fall is the perfect time to schedule your annual roofing inspection. We have made it through summer storms with the damaging hail and winds they often bring and have a calm before winter weather hits. Make an appointment with a roofer in your area to check for holes, leaks, wood rot, and other potential damage.

Complete Necessary Repairs

If your roofer discovers any damage during their inspection, do not delay the repairs. Failing to repair damage prior to winter will allow snow, ice, and wind to make the issues worse. Letting damage worsen will only lead to more costly and time consuming repairs in the long run.

Clean Your Gutters

One of the best parts of autumn is the vibrant colors of the changing leaves, but eventually the leaves will fall from the trees and land in your gutters. Be sure to remove leaves and other debris from your gutters. Keeping your gutters clean will help prevent potential water buildup.

 Inspect Your Attic

Your attic is often the first place inside the home that will be affected by roofing damage. Inspect the walls for stains caused by leaks and any signs of mold growth. If you find anything, be sure to call a professional roofer to help assess your findings.

Proper ventilation in your attic is also important. Poor ventilation can lead to serious roof damage as hot air and moisture become trapped inside. Be sure to inspect your attic’s insulation and make any necessary repairs.

Remove Overhanging Branches

If your home is surrounded by trees, make sure that any branches overhanging your roof are removed. It is very common for trees to lose branches in the fall and winter and a branch that falls directly on your home could cause damage to both your roofing and guttering.

Winter is quickly approaching, don’t delay these crucial maintenance steps any further. If you are unsure how to best prepare for the changing seasons, contact the PRQ Exteriors team today. We will send one our experts out to inspect your roof and advise you on how to best winterize your property.
