Commit to Weekly Self-Checks of Your Roof
We all get caught up in the daily grind sometimes. We’re going in so many different directions that the little things start getting overlooked. Like your roof. When was the last time you actually gave your roof a real long look to assess potential damage or future causes for concern?
Don’t neglect your roof. Commit to a weekly check. No, you don’t have to drag out your ladder and scale all the way up to give it an up close viewing. Simply walk around the perimeter of your home from a variety of angles to see if any major damage is obvious. You’re looking for missing shingles, damaged gutters, sagging or this time of year in many areas, ice dams. Also check your yard or surrounding area for any debris.
Seasonally, having a trained professional like an Roofing Advisor at Honest Abe Roofing inspect your roof at least once each winter is a smart move. Your eyes can only diagnose visible issues. A roofing professional will be able to use their experience to identify any areas that could endure seasonal deficiencies during a particularly biting winter.
You’ll also be ahead of the curve when it comes to getting any needed repairs completed. The licensed professionals at Honest Abe Roofing are Your Winter Weather Roofer. Honest Abe Roofing can address needed repairs twelve months a year and keep you and your family safe from the elements.
