Fall Maintenance to Protect Your Roof Through the Winter

The fall season is in full swing and winter will be here before you know it. Is your roof in a condition to make it through whatever weather the winter season decides to throw at us this year? Follow these fall maintenance tips provided by your favorite Lake of the Ozarks roofer to ensure your roof lasts through the winter without any major issues.

1. Clean Out Your Gutters. 


The leaves have started to change color and soon they'll be falling from the trees and into your gutters. Cleaning out your gutters in preparation for the winter months is one of the most important fall maintenance tasks, especially when it comes to protecting your roof. Clogged gutters can lead to water buildup on your roof, which can cause leaks and possibly even damage to the roof deck. Ice dams are an issue in the Lake area and clear gutters that allow for proper drainage of melting snow and ice can prevent ice dams from forming. In addition to cleaning your gutters, you'll want to check for any damage that could cause water not to drain properly as well.

2. Trim Close Hanging Trees. 


Another important aspect of fall home maintenance is tree trimming. It's important to remove any dead trees to prevent the possibility of falling limbs. Winter weather increases the chances of tree limbs falling on your home and damaging your roof. Be sure to trim back any branches that hang over your roof, as the added weight from snow can cause them to break.  

3. Schedule Your Fall Roof Inspection.
