Get Your Roof Inspected Before Winter


It’s back to school time, it’s football season, and there’s a lot of excitement in the air. The kids are going to bed early and off to school in the morning. As fall approaches and summer quickly passes, you may be looking at your roof thinking that it doesn’t look like it used to. It might be a good idea to have it checked or replaced. If you put it off through the summer, fall is a great time to get a roof checkup and full inspection for just $189.


A lot of things can happen to a roof over the summer. It hasn’t rained very much in our area and shingles have been baking in the sun. September, October and November are great roofing months. A lot of work can be done in a short period of time because heat isn’t as much of a concern. If you didn’t get your roof taken care of during the summer, now is the perfect time. There are only so many great days for roofing in the fall before winter.


With rainy season quickly approaching, we’ll check your gutters for debris and stuck objects. You never know what might have gotten plugged up in the downspouts while your kids were having fun this past summer. It is amazing what we’ll find in gutters and downspouts when there are kids playing around the house. It’s not surprising for us to find rubber snakes, toy cars, and even fireworks from the 4th of July.


It’s not a good idea to put off a roof inspection with snowy winter months coming either. Since this is a busy time of year, getting on our list and having everything checked out is important. While the days are starting to get shorter, it’s not as hot. We can get just as much done in the same amount of time. Some people think that it is too cold in September to get their roof done. That’s not true. In fact, roofing technology and shingle manufacturers have changed very much. Manufacturer sealants are more aggressive, so sometimes it only takes a day to seal under adequate sunlight.
