When it comes to your roof, the fall season is an important time for homeowners. It’s an important time of the year to inspect your roof, address any issues you have, and make sure it is secure for the season ahead. As a homeowner, it’s important to know what to look for and signs of roofing issues so you can have them address now before they become a greater issue.
Why Address Roof Damage In The Fall?
Roof damage in the fall is common. The weather can be unpredictable. Addressing roof damage in the fall is important for two reasons. First, you can address any roof issues that arose over the summer, and second, you can make sure your roof is equipped to handle the winter season ahead. Therefore, the fall provides you with ample time to address damage.
What To Look For When Assessing Your Roof For Damage
Identifying roofing damage is important. But, it’s not always easy. Here are some things to look for when determining whether or not you have roofing damage:
- Debris: There is a lot of debris that can find its way onto your roof. This is particularly the case after a storm or high winds. Things like leaves, twigs, and even tree branches could be a sign that damages has been done to your roof. If you have debris on your roof, consider having it inspected this fall.
- Loose eaves: Your eaves and downspouts are an extension of your roof. If you notice they are damaged, hanging away from the house, or are filled with debris, there is a need for inspection. Any issue with your eaves means water is likely not exit your roofing structure in the way it is supposed to. This means you could have water getting into your roof in many different areas.
- Loose shingles: Your shingles are a very valuable part of your roofing structure. They are the surface level protection to prevent water and other objects from damaging your roof. If you notice your shingles are loose, chipped, cracked, or even missing in some areas, it means your roof is compromised and is vulnerable to all type of threats.
- Water and leaks: Perhaps the most recognizable sign of roofing damage is water and leaks. If you have water in your attic or you find it pooling in the basement or any other area of your home, it usually means you have a roofing problem.
