Fall is a great time of year to undertake Roof Repair and maintenance projects—the weather is still mild, and with winter on the way, you want to be sure your house is adequately protected. In today’s post, Eldridge Roofing and Restoration shares four roof upkeep duties you should prioritize this season:
1. Check for Red Flags
Inspect your roofing system for any potential cause for concern. Missing, damaged, or loose shingles may indicate direct impact pressure from debris, while the presence of blistered, curled, or buckled shingles may mean it’s time to invest in a replacement. These problems can expose the underlayment, allowing rainwater to seep in if not addressed as soon as possible.
2. Clear Your Gutters
Your gutters need to be free of debris to function properly. Clear out any leaves, twigs, animal nests, and other items in your gutters that could create a clog. At Eldridge Roofing and Restoration, our Roofing services come with seamless gutter installation. We also provide gutter repair, replacement, inspection, and cleaning.
3. Assess Your Paint and Siding
In addition to their aesthetic benefits, your paint and siding serve as your home’s protection from water, rot, and mold. Are there any signs of peeling, fading, or staining? If there are, call your contractor immediately. We offer James Hardie® fiber cement siding, which is known for its beauty, durability, and low-maintenance features.
4. Get Inside
You may not always see problems easily just by looking from the outside, which is why we suggest assessing your interior too. Hidden signs of water leaks may be detected at the highest point of your home. Inspect your attic and check for signs of water penetration, such as ceiling stains, discoloration, holes, or a musty smell. If you notice any of these signs, call your Roof Repair experts to have this taken care of promptly before it leads to more extensive damage.
