Fall Roofing Inspection Overview

When we’re moving into the last few months of the year, make sure to take the time to schedule a fall roof inspection. The autumn months can be busy with back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas shopping. But even though it might be hectic, fall is the best time to have your roof inspected. You want to make sure that your home will be safe during any winter storms that may come your way.

Those will need to be removed before the storm season. Getting rid of dead limbs especially if they hang over your house protects your roof during heavy rains, high winds, and big snowstorms.
