Fall roof and gutter cleaning and maintenance

Posted on September 25, 2014 · Posted in Asphalt Shingle Roofing, Gutters, Roof Maintenance

With summer coming to an end and fall moving in, it’s an important time for homeowners to prepare their roofs for fall and winter weather in Maine.

Once the leaves start falling, it doesn’t take long for piles of leaves to become piles of snow. Cleaning your gutters is essential for the winter months. Clearing your gutters of existing twigs, leaves, dirt, and other debris that may have built up since your last cleaning, will ensure that water flows off and away from your roof properly. In addition to cleaning your gutters, make sure you check for any leaks or other damage. Consider installing gutter guards on your home to protect your gutters from clogging up with debris.

Shingles are another component that should be inspected for damage from the previous year. Looking for wear and tear and shingles that should be replaced this fall will help prevent leaking and water damage during the winter and spring.

Contact Horch Roofing to have your roof inspected for any damage that may cause your home long-term harm. It’s important to have a certified professional take a look at your roofing system. Small issues can lead to big problems in the long run and should be checked out before the cold winter puts a beating on your roof.
