It’s that time of year again! Time to start thinking about roof maintenance. Here are three end-of-summer roof maintenance tips to keep your roof in top condition.
1. Inspect Your Roof
Inspecting your roof regularly is essential, especially at the end of summer. First, check for any signs of damage, such as missing or damaged shingles. If you see any damage, it must be repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your roof. You may want to request a free estimate from our Synergy Roofing professionals.
2. Clean Your Gutters
Gutters play an important role in protecting your roof from water damage. Make sure to clean them out regularly, especially at the end of summer. Also, remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris that may have accumulated over the summer months. This step is essential when prioritizing your roof maintenance.
3. Trim Your Trees
Throughout the spring and summer months, your trees grow sustainably. While these healthy trees are beautiful to look at and they add visual appeal to your property, they could be a danger to your home if they sit too close to it. Overhanging branches that aren’t trimmed can scrape against your roof and puncture your shingles, while fallen fruit or foliage can result in unnecessary clogs in your gutter system. Luckily, the overall risk of damage to your roof can easily be reduced by performing a simple and careful tree trimming. Make sure to trim any trees near your rooftop so they don’t rub against your shingles and cause damage. If you aren’t sure how to do this, make sure to call a professional so that you don’t cause harm to the tree or injure yourself.
