Although we haven’t had as harsh winters in the recent past as many years ago, that could change at any time. You want your roofing system to be prepared if we do. If you haven’t done your roof maintenance in Knoxville, do it now, before we get our first ice or snow.
Your Roofing System is More than Just Shingles
Your roofing system includes many elements. They work together to protect your home and include:
- Roof deck
Each one has it’s own job but needs other elements in good condition to do what it needs to do.
What You Should Do After the Leaves Finish Falling
Once the leaves are off your trees, you need to clean your roof and gutters. Leaves left on your shingles can lead to a more rapid deterioration. Leaves in your gutters are a leading cause of ice dams. Once those two jobs are done, you need to inspect your roofing system. Verify you don’t have any missing shingles or shingles that look unusual. Also make sure that your soffits run around your overhangs as they should and that they aren’t blocked by foliage. Don’t forget to look at your fascia as it can be an entry point for rodents in fall and winter looking for a dry and warm spot to stay.
