1. Trim Back Branches close to your Home:
Trim tree branches when you notice that they get too close to your home as this prevents any damage to your roof in future and it is also a good idea. If you do this during the autumn it also reduces the number of leaves that can end up in your gutter.
2. Clean Your rooftop and gutters:
Leaves that fall on your rooftop during autumn will end up into your gutters and downpipes in abundance. This clogs in your gutters and downpipes, preventing water from flowing freely. Water then end up damming up onto the roof and into your home. This causes water damage over time, leading to cracks and mold on your roof and attic.
3. Gutter Guards must be Install:
Make it easier on yourself and cut down on how much gutter cleaning you’ll have to do, getting and fit gutter guards. The cost-effective caps which fit snugly inside your gutters prevent leaves from falling in. The gutter guards have small holes in them allowing water to flow into the gutters while keeping the twigs and leaves out.
4. Have your Roof Inspection:
Have a professional look at your roof to see if it’s prepared to handle stormy weather before the summer weather hits. It’s better to find any roof maintenance issues early. This will save you a lot of money.
5. Get Roof Repairs done:
