Fall Maintenance 101: Why You Need It & What You Can Do

Fall Maintenance 101: Why You Need It & What You Can Do

Now that you’re back from your summer holiday vacation, it’s time to check up on your home. After experiencing intense heat, your roofs and gutters may have been dealt some damage. This fall, make sure you schedule a routine maintenance program.


Chico roofing contractors highly recommend checking up on your roofs and gutters every fall. The weather and temperature are ideal for working outside. Fall maintenance also makes sure that your home is ready to endure harsh winter nights. Proper inspections and repairs can also solve minor problems ahead before they get worse. By fixing smaller problems, you won’t have to worry about more costly repairs.

Maintenance Tips

You can start preparing your home through visual inspections of both the inside and outside of your home. On the inside, you can check your walls and ceilings to see if they have water stains. You can also go to the attic and see if there are any holes or gaps.

While on your driveway, you can use binoculars to inspect your roof. Look for some of the most common roofing issues:

  • Loose, missing, cracked shingles
  • Loose flashing around vents, pipes, and chimneys
  • Animal nesting
  • Shingle granules in gutters
  • Leaves and other debris clogging gutters and downspouts
