As the seasons change, so do weather patterns. You need to make sure your roof is prepared to handle any of the extreme or bizarre conditions that Mother Nature may throw your way.
Here are several steps to take to make sure you are in the best position to handle the weather this year.
Insurance and warranties
Your home insurance and roof warranty can be a challenge to keep track of sometimes. While shingle warranties can last up to 50 years, they generally only cover material imperfections. And a manufacturer may choose to void a warranty if you can’t prove that proper maintenance has been done.
You should also read your insurance policy or call your insurance agent to understand what kind of protection your home has. Ask about things like fire, hail damage, wind, and falling trees/branches. Also ask if leaks are covered by your insurance.
Remember, Land Enterprises Roofing will work with your insurance company if you need to file a claim.
Cleaning and upkeep of your roof
There are a few things you can do to minimize risks to your roof and home. The first step is cleaning out your gutters. Get a ladder and some gloves and make sure water flow won’t be blocked by debris. While you are up there, you can take a closer look at your roof for any signs of peeling, lifting, or missing shingles.
You should also look into trimming trees that hang near or over your house. Take care to keep your property clean of any trash or branches as well. Strong winds can pick up surprisingly heavy things and throw them onto your roof.
Keep an eye on the weather, as you may have to alter your cleaning schedule if storms are predicted within a few days.
As always, take the necessary safety precautions whenever you’re using a ladder or are climbing on your roof.
