Preparing Your Roof for the Fall Season in Washington State

rainstorm in the Fall season

As the Fall season approaches here in the Pacific Northwest, homeowners understand the rain is on its way. Of course, in the state of Washington, we experience quite a bit of rain year-round, but as temperatures drop and stormy weather threatens, our roofs are something we should be keeping an eye on.

Here are some tips on how to ensure your roof is in good hands for the Fall season.

Cleaning and De-clogging Your Gutters

As the Autumn leaves fall, you’ll be experiencing more debris and leaves building up in your gutters. It’s always important to clean out your gutters during the fall season because if you don’t, there can be consequences down the road. The weight of debris built up in your gutters can be damaging to your roof as well. If you put-off cleaning them out, your roof can be susceptible to other issues during severe storms.

Inspect Your Roof for Damages

Check your roof for damages on the surface. If you spot missing shingles, frayed edges, flashing around vent stacks, chimneys, or skylights, you should have those things taken care of before the season. These damages should be repaired as soon as possible. At A Quality Roof Now, we specialize in roof replacement and roof repairs.

Attic Ventilation Check

Proper attic ventilation helps control temperatures and limit moisture, helping to prevent damage and lengthen the life of your roof. During the winter season, there could be severe weather like snowstorms, damp environments, and much more. Without proper ventilation in your attic, this can be a major problem.

The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for the fall and winter seasons is making sure the foundation and roof are in perfect conditions. You’ll benefit greatly from any roof replacement or roof repairs before the season hits.
