Here are some great ideas for when you clean up before winter comes. First, make sure you take proper precaution and be sure you put safety first. Then remove any leaves, branches or debris from your roof. Do the same for your gutters. Check the trees around your house and trim back any branches that hang directly over your roof. This will help keep debris out of your gutters and prevent harmful ice damns as un-drained water freezes in cold winter temperatures. Also keep an eye out for moss or mold growing on the surface of your shingles. You can buy a specific cleaning solution at your local hardware store that will safely remove the moss or mold without damaging your roof. Don’t attempt to power wash your roof because it could strip your shingles off and the protective grains.
Remember that a quick inspection and a couple hours worth of maintenance can help extend the life of your roof, protecting your home for years to come.
