Roofing Contractors Edina Minnesota | Exterior Fall Maintenance Routine (Part 2)
Exterior home services are important to prepare for winter, and that’s why homeowners should be considering several home maintenance tasks during the autumn. Part 1 of this blog series noted that cleaning out your gutters, checking your attic, and storing your outdoor furniture are all important home maintenance tasks to perform before the end of autumn. Here are 3 more tasks that should be part of your fall maintenance routine: Roofing Contractors Edina Minnesota
Clean Window Wells
Cleaning your window wells before snow accumulates is an important home maintenance task. If dirt, leaves, sticks, cobwebs, and other debris sit in your window well for an extended period of time, your window well will retain high levels of moisture. A buildup of debris creates an area for water to sit and accumulate fungus, mildew, and mold. Clearing out your window well regularly will help prevent moisture from impacting your window well and reduce the likelihood you need window repairs. If your window well has retained moisture for too long, or if the side of your house has become subject to water damage, it can lead to extensive and expensive repairs. Contact your local siding company if you notice siding damage or damage to other areas of your exterior.
Clear Debris Off Your Roof
If you have large trees in your yard or neighborhood, they’ll start to shed their leaves, even starting before early autumn. Debris like leaves and twigs on your roof may look harmless (albeit unkempt), but it can actually contribute to roof damage. When leaves sit on your roof, especially in bulk, they quickly accumulate moisture. This is especially dangerous if you have preexisting roof damage. Unmoved debris on your roof contributes to an unpleasant smell, moisture, rot, mildew, fungus, and even mold. It’s important to clear debris off of your roof so your exterior, and interior, aren’t impacted by excess moisture that leads to water damage. Contact your local roofers for a free roof inspection to determine if you have any roof damage.
Get A Roof Inspection
If you haven’t had a roof inspection recently, fall is a great time to do so. After a summer with the potential for a lot of severe weather, your roof and siding may have preexisting damage that’s been impacting your home for a while. Homeowners often find that it can be hard to spot roof damage. It’s always important to consider safety precautions while on the roof, and moreover, some homeowners just aren’t comfortable getting on the roof. Also, note that people who are untrained and inexperienced in roof repairs don’t usually know what to look for when it comes to roof damage. Damage is often concealed or difficult to spot. Roofers near Edina know what to look for and can make the determination of the best route of repairs.
Preexisting storm damage can be detrimental to a home. Contact Capstone Bros Contracting if you need any roofing services near Edina to help prepare your home for snow and freezing temperatures.
