Leaky roofs and broken gutters can lead to costly damages to your home. To save money on expensive repairs, prepare your house and roof for bad weather. Are you ready for the rainy days ahead? Below are 3 ways to ensure your house is prepared: Clean and repair gutters. It’s important to maintain and clean out gutters around the roof of your house to prevent them from falling or tearing from the roof. Gutter maintenance can help keep your house and family safe from falling gutters and prevent mold and mildew build ups, which can rot wood and cause structural damage to the building. Inspect your roof. Walk around the perimeter of your house and look for any cracks, loose/missing shingles, or dripping spots. If you see any signs of wear to your roof, contact a roofing contractor immediately to prevent major damages. Roof repair is not necessarily a cheap upfront investment, but prophylactic care can save you thousands of dollars during bad weather months, not to mention preserve your peace of mind. Trim shrubs. Keep shrubs and tree limbs trimmed away from the house to protect the exterior of your home from branches and other debris that may fall during inclement weather.
