Roof maintenance is pretty important all year round, but the most important periods are the beginning of spring and the end of summer. September is a good time to get all the maintenance requirements out of the way, especially if your roof is somewhat older and prone to easy storm damage.
You can start by clearing any lingering debris such as branches and leaves from your roof. Also, it’s a good idea to relocate any nests that animals may have made during the summer and ensure that your gutter system isn’t clogged and is functioning properly.
Another task that has to be performed by a Dallas roofing company is to check your roof for damage. Summer storms and hail can be problematic, especially in areas where the precipitation is more prevalent. So it’s a good idea to check your flashing and look for any damaged shingles along the way.
It’s also a good idea to complete any mild repair work that you’ve been putting off. If you noticed a few cracked shingles or areas of the roof where the structural integrity is somewhat lacking, then it’s best to address those problems before all the thunderstorms and September’s high volume of rain kicks in. Most experts agree that it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking these precautions.
