6 Tips to Help Protecting Your Roof & Gutter

Your roof is one of the most important pieces of your home; it protects everything in it from Mother Nature. It’s important that you take great care of your roof, repair it when necessary, and replace it when the time comes.

Here are a few tips to help you care for your roof and ensure it’s able to do its job.

  • Make sure your gutter system is properly cleaned, especially during the fall season. Your gutters should be clear year round so that they can drain the water from around your roof, otherwise, you could end up with clogged water that will cause damage. During the fall, if your gutter becomes clogged, ice and ice-dams could be created during the winter which can be the start of damage to your roof.
  • Make sure that your roof is drained of leaves and debris. If water becomes clogged it will sit there, and can ultimately seem into your roof causing damage.
  • Have your gutters inspected so that you can identify any damage or anything improper about the system before it’s too late? Gutter inspection is just as important as the inspection of any other part of your home because they play such an important role in protecting it.
  • Always keep an eye out for missing or curled shingles. Taking action right away when you notice these signs of wear and tear can cost you less money than ignoring it until it gets worse.
  • Don’t allow thick layers of snow to sit on your roof for too long. This could cause roof collapse or damage. You can rake the snow off with a snow rake that is available from most home improvement stores.
  • Develop a relationship with a company that offers gutter cleaning and repair as well as roof inspection, repair, and replacement. Partnering with an expert like this can help you ensure that your home is protected with regular cleaning and that any damage is noticed and fixed sooner than later, saving you money in the long run. See your roof as your car, something that needs to be inspected and maintained so that it can continue to do its job.
