As warm weather leaves Minnesota, many homeowners begin to inspect their property looking for areas that require repair and preparation for the cold months ahead. And, there is one area of the home that must not be forgotten during this crucial time of year; and that is the gutters! As the trusted name in gutters for the Twin Cities area, we are here to tell you more about the importance of clean, functioning gutters.
Know Your Gutters
Gutters can play an important role in the structural soundness of your roof. The windy days from the fleeting fall and winter likely blew dirt, leaves and debris into your gutters. Leaves in the gutter block the ideal flow of rain and other precipitation as they accumulate in massive numbers. Having the gutters at your Twin Cities home cleaned, repaired or replaced can help prevent future costly repairs. It’s important to keep rainwater or other precipitation from damaging your home’s exterior with a quality, custom gutter system installed by JTR Roofing. Our experienced team can create gutters that perfectly fit any style or design of your house. Until then, consider these benefits to giving your gutters a little extra TLC this season.
Address Any Damage
If the debris and leaves trapped in your gutters froze and thawed over the winter, your gutters may have experienced some damage. The leaves that accumulated in the fall helped contribute to the damage ice can cause in a gutter, altering the shape and sometimes the overall structure of the gutters themselves. The weight of this ice can easily topple and disconnect from your home the entire spouts and gutters network. It is all but essential as a standard means of maintenance for your gutters to keep them void of clutter. With the ice completely melted, it is now a great time of year to consider any repairs you may require for your gutters.
Often, repair is not an option with severely damaged gutters. JTR Roofing can easily help with the installation of new pieces or entirely new gutters if deemed beyond repair. Standards in the world of gutters include those made of aluminum, copper and vinyl. You can even help avoid future leaf accumulation with features like seamless gutter guards. These can completely block leaf access while still welcoming all forms of precipitous moisture for the months ahead. Having gutter guards installed in your gutters will eliminate the need to get up on that roof to clean them out next year.

Fall is in full swing. Have you taken care of essential roof maintenance and repairs for the season yet? If you haven’t done so, your roof may be in for a tough time come winter. So, contact your local Oakdale roofer, JTR Roofing, and ask us to take a look at essential areas of your roof before the first snowflake of winter falls. Here are some important items that should be on your fall roofing checklist:
Regular maintenance and inspections can reveal any damage to your roof or potential issues that could compromise your roof system later on. Inspections are best performed in spring and early fall. If you missed a spring inspection, you will want to schedule an inspection, replacement or repair before cold weather hits in just a few months.
Have your roofer check out your attic next. Apart from figuring out whether there are obvious leaks on the rooftop, also consider how well-insulated your attic is.
Check the shingles. Your roofing needs to be in pretty good shape to protect you no matter the weather. Ask your roofer to check for any missing or broken shingles or other potential issues.
If you have any leaking or other types of issues now, think of how ice and freezing rain will affect your roof now through the spring. Melted snow can seep into open cracks and when it refreezes, any crack you have will widen and increase the chances for leaks and even interior mold. Let your roofer know about any leaks you have noticed.
You may not think that you’ll need them as much during the winter, but you want to make sure that gutters are unobstructed to facilitate the drainage of snowmelt away from your roof. Clean out the leaves from the gutters and downspouts, and then see if they are functioning properly.
Of all the seasons of the year, autumn is the perfect time for roof repair and replacement projects. It’s during this time that scorching heat waves are finally over and the brittle cold is still a ways off.
Take advantage of the ideal conditions that autumn provides and have a trusted roofer check your roof. It’s a good investment for such an important aspect of your home.
