Winter is perhaps the most demanding season to almost any type of residential or commercial roofing system. During this time you have the threat of snow, ice dams and occasional rains looming over your house. If you want to get ahead of any potential trouble, it makes sense to have your roof professionally inspected and repaired before the winter frost starts.
Aside from all the clear advantages of a seasonally prepped roof, scheduling your maintenance in the fall offers other benefits to you as a homeowner.
Early Fall Advantages
Fall can be marked by severe weather conditions as well so it’s best to choose schedules right at the end of summer when the weather is still amenable to roof repair and replacement jobs. Additionally, many homeowners and property managers will also take advantage of late summer appointments so getting your roofing work booked ahead of time will also help you avoid the rush.
Not Just Winter
Winter may be harsh, but the fall season also brings its own set of problems to many roofing systems, particularly to your gutters and downspouts. Fallen leaves and other debris are notorious for clogging up gutters and downspouts, which could lead to basement flooding and other problems in your home. Getting these parts of the roof cleared up before the season starts is a great way to prepare your roof for these common issues.
Having your roof replacement or maintenance requirements met early also means your family will be enjoying optimum energy efficiency throughout the heating months. This could mean maximizing the insulation of your roof right at the time when it matters the most.
