If you have not noticed by now, it is fall. As we prepare for the colder winter days, there are some things that you should do for your home so that you don’t have bigger issues in the future. One of those things is to get your roof and gutters inspected and repaired if necessary. Trademark Restoration wants to help you out by giving out some tips you will need this fall.

Cleaning gutters

This is a tedious and potentially dangerous job so it is a good idea to hire someone rather than do it yourself. It will also take less time since we have done this more than a few times. While we are there, we can see if any of your gutters need to be repaired or replaced for better flow or less damage to your house. Of course you can do this task yourself, but you will want to make sure you have all of the tools, don’t reach on a ladder and don’t use a hose to clean out the gutter. This job should not be done carelessly. It will need your full attention to prevent injury.

Potential Problems

Before you call a professional, you will want to look your roof over and see if you spot any potential issues. With a pair of binoculars, look at your shingles and check for buckling, curling or peeling. This generally indicates that the shingles have reached the end of their life expectancy. Also, if the shingles have been moved around in the wind because they have come unglued or unnailed, that will generally indicate a problem. You can also check your attic for any leaking, mold or mildew.

Being on the roof is a dangerous activity and we cannot stress this enough. When you suspect an issue with your roof, call your local roofing company. Trademark Restoration is here for you. Call us for a free consultation today.
