In 2019, the first day of fall is Monday, September 23rd. This quickly-approaching date still gives you some time to prepare your roof before the climate changes. Having a plan and knowing what to look for will give you the head start you need get ready. With roof maintenance being so important, you will need all the time you can get to plan and execute a solid plan for getting your roof ready for the fall.
Inspect your roof
The first thing you need to do is check and see if there are any problems with your roof. Things like gaps, holes or other damage should be dealt with first before you do anything else. Some of these issues may require professional help and that would definitely cut into your timeline of being ready.
Thoroughly clean your gutters
This is easier said than done. Build-up in gutters can cause permanent damage, not only to your roof, but also cause water damage to your house. Taking extra time to make sure your gutters are fully cleared will save you time and a headache in the future.
Check inside your house
Everything may look fine from an outside view of your house, but take the time to look at ceilings inside. If you notice any water damage to your ceiling, it is a good indicator that you have an issue with your roof. Since these types of leaks can be tricky, it is suggested that you contact a professional to inspect this type of issue.
