We can share tips on how to maintain your home and save money on repair costs. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern Shore explains how to prepare your home and property for winter.


Get Your Gutters Cleaned

Inspecting and cleaning your gutters is one of the most important fall maintenance tasks you need to do. Your gutters protect the rest of your home from water damage. They need to be clean and debris-free if you want them to perform their job properly during winter. If you’ve installed a gutter protection system, then it’s unlikely that leaves and debris can enter your gutters. In the rare event that they do, however, you should call a pro to clean your gutters for you.

Trim Tree Branches

Low-hanging branches can rub up against the roof because of strong winds. This is a problem because the branches can scratch away at the protective outer layer of the asphalt shingles. This weakens the shingles and makes it more likely that your roof will leak. Severe weather can also cause tree branches to fly and hit your roof. You should trim any dead branches or trees that are too close to your roof.

Get Your Roof Inspected

Fall is also the perfect time to schedule a roof inspection and repair. The mild weather allows contractors to work more quickly and efficiently. Regular roof maintenance can fix small problems before they turn into major issues like leaks. This will improve your roof’s performance and improve your home’s energy efficiency just in time for winter.
