Fall is finally upon us, and winter is right around the corner. Like most of us, you probably have leaves in your gutters and pine straw on your roof. These are a few of the unique challenges your roof faces during the fall and winter months. Without proper routine maintenance these conditions can lead to leaks, or even worse, a new roof. The award winning roofers at Roof Authority would like to share some helpful hints and special offers that can help you prepare your roof for the change in seasons.
Clogged Gutters & Downspouts
Clogged gutters and downspouts are common issues we encounter as we transition to the colder months. This can lead to rotted fascia or soffit, and can even shorten the lifespan of those expensive gutters you installed on your house. In some instances, clogs can even lead to interior roof leaks.
Things like the size of your roof and its pitch determine the most effective products to ensure everything under your roof remains protected. Roof Authority offers a variety of gutter & gutter guard solutions for every home. Remember, properly installed gutters and gutter guards can reduce your exposure to these risks.
Pine Straw can damage your roof… and your neck!
Have you noticed pine straw build-up on your roof? Did you know that leaving pine straw on your roof for extended periods of time can cost you big $$$ down the road?
Pine Straw build-up can prevent your roof from properly draining. The longer it stays there, the greater the chance you develop a leak and rotted decking. Rain and condensation (from hot attic air coming in contact with the cold roof) provide more than enough water to accumulate and find it’s way under your shingles.
We realize that climbing up on the roof is not always the safest option for most homeowners. Let the pros at Roof Authority handle this risky task for you.
