Gutter Maintenance & Pre-Winter Roofing Inspection
Fall is a prime time to schedule a pre-winter inspection with aKenosha Roofing Contractorand to fix any areas in need of roof repair. It is also the time to ensure your guttering system is clean and working properly before winter arrives. A guttering system is designed and installed to divert water away from your home and requires regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them working properly. A clogged gutter will hold water which can eventually cause moisture to enter your home, stain the ceilings and even lead to mold and mildew growth. Here are a few other dangers that Kenosha roofers see when a guttering system is not cleaned and maintained.
- Rotted roof decking and shingles is a result of water seeping under the shingles. This can cause damage to the support beams, weakening the overall structural integrity and possibly a collapse. These types of roof repairs will require a professional roofer or roofing contractor to ensure that they fixed properly.
- Wet debris is often heavy and may possibly pull a gutter and its fasteners away from a home, often tearing away siding and trim in the process. This damp organic material also attracts nesting insects and provides an optimal environment for rodents, roaches, and birds to build their homes.
- Wet leaves and debris expand when the temperatures get below freezing, this is often the cause of cracked gutters during the winter months.
