We recommend that you have your Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Nazareth, Northampton, and Lehigh Valley PA roof examined twice a year by a professional roofer or roofing contractor. This will help to increase the longevity of your roof by detecting problems early (when they’re typically smaller), and possibly still covered under warranty. This can be done by yourself with a visual inspection from the ground at a distance, but getting on top of your roof will give you a far better indication of what’s really going on up there. Professional roofers and contractors know exactly what problems to look for, and how to maneuver around your roof in a safe, low-risk manner.
The fall leaves are gorgeous at this time in Northeastern PA, but they also bring a lot of work cleaning them up in and around the yard. Don’t forget to clean your gutters too!! Keeping them free of dirt, leaves, and twigs will ensure that they’re draining properly and away from your home. This will aid in the deterrence of any overflow that may splash-back onto your roof, causing damage to it and other vital components such as the fascia, soffit, siding, and/or foundation. While you’re at it, now is a convenient time with the leaves falling to trim back any branches growing within ten feet of your roofline. This is mainly to protect your roof and home, but it will also lower the amount of debris that fills your gutters needing to be cleaned. Some homes gutters need to be cleaned several times depending on the amount and type of trees near their home.
