As a roofing company in Knoxville and Nashville, we handle a lot of roof repairs. Some of those roof repairs also required the work of an interior contractor because of water damage. We want to help you do what you can to avoid needing a roofing or other type of contractor for repairs. Here are some exterior home maintenance tasks you should put on your list for 2022.
Sometime in late February or early March, take a look at your roofing system. As a roofing company in Knoxville, TN we receive countless roof repair calls after the first of the heavy spring rains. Many of these calls could be prevented with a little work on your part. As you’re looking at your roof, make sure the gutters are cleaned and free flowing. Also check for missing and misaligned shingles – if you have either call your roofing company in Knoxville, TN for a roof repair estimate. Also make sure your siding is well affixed.
Before it gets too hot is the best time to check the caulk around your windows. Also see if your door’s weather-stripping needs replacing. Check in your attic for signs of a roof leak like dark streaks on your roof deck and compressed insulation. It’s also a great time to make sure you have sufficient insulation so you can save on your cooling costs.
Trim your bushes from around your HVAC unit and makes sure they’re at least three inches from your home’s exterior. If you have large tree branches overhanging your roof, make sure they don’t rub on the shingles. When they do, you’ll end up needing a roof replacement from your roofing company in Knoxville. If any of the branches seem dead, call a tree services company for safe removal before a summer storm leads to storm damage.
Because Knoxville and most of Tennessee seems to get strong storms through fall, make sure that you perform a roofing inspection and look for signs of damage. If you haven’t had your roofing company in Knoxville perform an annual inspection, now is a great time to call them. Also make sure your gutters are clean. If your landscaping grew and is again touching your home, trim it back.
