  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


3 Fall Roof Maintenance Tasks to Prioritize

Fall is in full swing, which means it’s time to do some much-needed maintenance work around your home. You should pay particular attention to your roof, which needs all the care it can get before the harsher weather of winter arrives.

3 Fall Roof Maintenance Tasks to Prioritize

In today’s post, Universal Roofing and Exteriors, your roofing and siding contractor, recommends three roof maintenance tasks to prioritize this fall:

In-Depth Roof Inspection

Inspections should be first on your list. After spring and summer, the roof may have sustained considerable wear and tear. An in-depth inspection conducted by a professional roofer is the best way to identify underlying damage.

Roof inspections also allow you to head off problems such as leaks. These can quickly grow in size in just a matter of weeks, which is why it’s important to stay on top of them.

Gutter Maintenance

The gutters are perhaps the most forgettable part of the roofing system, but they play a critical role in protecting your entire home from water damage. Clogged gutters are a big risk in the fall due to falling leaves. A clogged gutter cannot effectively drain water away from your home, putting your roof, siding, landscape and foundation at risk of water damage.

Attic Ventilation

You should also make sure your attic is properly ventilated. Poor ventilation in the attic can cause your roof to become dry and brittle, making it more vulnerable to leaks.
