Here in Texas, we tend to be late bloomers, as far as Fall and Winter are concerned. However, leaves have started to change in some parts of the state, and the holidays are rapidly approaching. While preparing for Thanksgiving, you may have a long list of things to do before your guest arrive, and we want to remind you to make sure your roof is ready too! Today we will go over a few things to remember about your roof before Thanksgiving comes around.
The reason you’ll want to get this project done prior to thanksgiving, is that a clean roof can truly add to the aesthetic value of your home. A clean roof looks newer, and makes your house stand out more. How do you clean your roof? Simply remove all of the leaves and debris from your gutters and roof surface. For an added shine, clean your gutters with the hose to remove any dust or dirt.
Cleaning your roof is also a great way to prevent unnecessary damages, and you should have your roof inspected at least once a year. Annual inspections can help you find small problems early on, so you can repair them and avoid larger problems.
Keeping your roof clean and free from debris will protect several elements of your home, including your roof, your gutters, and even your foundation. By keeping your roof clean, you protect it from moisture buildup, as well as mold and mildew growth. Clean gutters also prevent these problems, and provide the added service of keeping rain water from washing out the dirt surrounding your home’s foundation.
