It was a long hot summer in the greater Chattanooga area and your home's roof may have survived the brutal heat, but now it's time to take a closer look through a fall roof inspection. Fall roof maintenance is a necessary part of extending the lifespan of your roof – and protecting your home’s integrity.
Most people don’t spend too much time thinking about roof maintenance on their Chattanooga home. Yet, the costs associated with routine maintenance of your roof is minimal comparing to the costs of replacing a neglected roof. Regular roof maintenance, in the long run, will save you money.
Our roof inspections are 10 point inspections and are available up to four times a year. Here are two of the areas of potential concern we will check during your Chattanooga home's fall roof inspection:
1. Gutter Cleaning
Your gutter system was designed to remove water from your roof in order to:
- prevent pooling of water and moisture buildup
- prevent damage to your home’s structure
- discourage moisture-related mold growth
When your gutters are not properly maintained, the lifespan of your Chattanooga home's roof can greatly be shortened, so it’s easy to see how critical it is that you clean and check our gutters one to two times a year.
If your Chattanooga home has a number of tall trees on your property, you may need to check gutters more frequently for stray leaves and twigs. It’s also important to be proactive about trimming tree overhangs and large branches, as these are major causes of clogged guttering.
Most gutters can be replaced quickly and inexpensively. If you need an experienced local contractor to do the job, Langley Roofing installs and repairs gutters in the greater Chattanooga area. Simply call (423) 504-5056 or visit us online to schedule a free estimate!
2. Inspect shingles for potential problems
Anomalies such as curling, cupping, flaking, tearing, splitting and blistering can occur during any part of the year, but with the brutal heat of a Chattanooga summer, it's prime time for roofing issues to develop. Without a roof inspection, you may not become aware of the issues until the needed repairs reach a critical level, such as with a leaking roof. All of our maintenance agreements include inspection for this issue.
