Keeping Debris Off Your Roof

Aug 15, 2019

Keeping Debris Off RoofThe roof is one of the most important elements of your house. It protects your home and your belongings from the elements and keeps you and your family safe, which is why keeping debris off of your roof is so critical. Making sure to remove leaves, limbs, and other debris from your roof, as well as cleaning your gutters not only improves the appearance of your roof (and your home overall), but also maintains its integrity and enhances its useful life.

Maintaining Your Roof & Gutters

A clean roof without debris will reflect the sun’s rays and keep your home from overheating during the hot summer months. This could improve energy efficiency and reduce your dependence on your HVAC system to keep your home comfortable. Keeping your gutters free of debris can also extend the life of your roof. Clogged gutters will eventually cause water to overflow and drain down the sides of your house, causing it to deteriorate. Gutters that are filled with debris can also become very heavy due to the weight of trapped water. This weight can cause damage to the fascia, pulling it loose from the roof and allowing water flowing off the roof to enter the attic and drip down into your home.
