Don't allow debris to sit on top of your roof. Branches, leaves, and other debris that accumulate on your roof invite mold, moss, and moisture that can prematurely age your roof. Elements can get under your roof shingles to cause destructive rot throughout your home. There are some tips to know about debris clearing. First, you should never do it alone. Always have a spotter when you climb up on your roof to clear away debris. An extendable ladder is helpful to safely access the top of your roof.
Your seasonal roof clearings create perfect opportunities for general inspections and repairs. You just have to know what to look for while you're up there. The first part of roof inspection starts inside your home. First, check in the attic for any stains that may indicate water leakage caused by a roof issue. Have you noticed any stains on the ceilings in your home? Make note of where they're located because they could actually be roof leaks.
