Cleaning your home’s gutters isn’t just something you do in the Fall season. The truth is, in Central Florida the trees that shed their leaves can do so through the winter season as well. Your home’s gutters can become clogged with all kinds of debris that make it very difficult for water to move off your roof and away from your home’s foundation. When water doesn’t move off of your roof properly it can cause water to back up into your home where it can do an incredible amount of damage, quickly.
As a side benefit, cleaning your gutters out in the Spring will also allow you to keep an eye out for any shingle material accumulation. If you start seeing shingle material showing up in your gutters, it’s a good idea to call Don Schmidt Roofing for an inspection, or at least a discussion on the phone about the condition of your roof.
As we know, once our summer rains return, and it won’t be long, you may find out the hard way if your roof has begun to show signs of wear and leakage. Take the time now to walk around your home and look for any signs of roof damage. It would be wise to look for any pieces of broken shingles or flashing that may have pulled away from the house framing. You can also get on a ladder and carefully inspect your roof if you are comfortable doing so. You’ll want to look for cracked or missing shingles or pieces of shingles in the gutters. If you’re seeing signs of wear like this give Don Schmidt Roofing a call at 407.892.9884.
We want to help, and getting an assessment on the condition of your home’s roof is always wise. Small repair needs can escalate into large repair situations once the heat, pounding rain and high winds come back to Osceola County!
