Now that fall has transitioned into winter, Mother Nature has long since stripped trees of last year’s leaves to make room for all the new leaves that will begin to appear before long, in spring. As a result, roofs and yards are often blanketed with fallen leaves until they are removed. Industrious types often keep their yards tidy by raking and bagging leaves. However, they may need help in order to deal with leaves that settle on the roofs of their homes and businesses, especially if their properties are surrounded by trees and therefore see a lot of buildup in their gutters. Regular roof maintenance is important to keep your roof in good shape for the coming seasons. In these cases, contacting the best residential roofing specialist in Edgewood can help property owners.
Addressing Issues with Gutters and Downspouts
What damage can fallen leaves cause? Quite a bit, if left unchecked. Thankfully, most roofs are fitted with gutters and downspouts that can help prevent them from being damaged by leaves, limbs, heavy rain, snow, and ice. Nevertheless, these gutters and downspouts that “divert rain, snow, and debris from your roof, home, and foundation” can become ineffective due to negligence. This is why regularly checking and cleaning out gutters and downspouts is important.
If they become clogged with wet leaves and other debris, erosion and cracks can occur. The cracks and erosion can, in turn, cause roofs and foundations to become weak. These issues can be costly to repair, depending on the extent of the damage.
But what about people who are unable to or simply don’t know how to maintain their gutters and downspouts? How can they protect their roofs and foundations? If you have any questions or concerns for a residential roofing expert, Old Line Roofing and Solar is here to help.
