Fall is a great time to check your home for any maintenance issues that need to be addressed before winter sets in. We’ve outlined some things to consider for your roof in this seasonal maintenance guide.
Fire Resistance: Do you know the fire resistance of your current roof? All Malarkey shingles include a Class A fire rating, which is the most fire resistant rating available.
Tree Debris: Keep an eye out for leaves and other tree debris on your roof that can cause discoloration and promote organic growth, which in some cases leads to granule loss.
Clogged Gutters: Clogged gutters can prohibit proper water drainage, which can lead to the potential for leaks and even ice dams in the winter.
Insulation and Ventilation: As fall sets in and temperatures cool, it is important to make sure you have proper insulation and ventilation in your home. Proper insulation and ventilation can keep heat out of your attic and inside of your home, which may save on heating costs and help prevent damaging ice dams from forming on your roof.
