Fall roof care tips
- Look for signs of fatigue: splits and cracks along stacks, vents, expansion joins, walls and perimeters which are the hardest hit by your house's movement as temperatures rise and fall.
- Remove all debris and leaves from all drains, scuppers and gutters. (Blocked drains are the biggest source of roof leaks so attend to them before the rain storms hit.)
- Make sure all skylights are not broken or cracked due to falling limbs and debris
Your safety is of primary importance. The following are some tips to look out for on your roof. We recommend you use a professional to inspect and maintain your roof as they will take proper safety measures when accessing your roof. If you insist on doing your own roof inspection or maintenance, at the very least make sure you tell someone of your intentions because if you do fall, you could be incapacitated for a long time before someone is aware of your problem.
