Taking Care of Your Attic This Summer

As the summer heat continues to beat down on your roof this summer, you will want to make sure it is doing its part to keep your home cool in the rising heat, particularly when it comes to your attic. Your home’s attic can reach extreme highs during the summer and even absorb the cool air emitting from your air conditioner. Make sure you perform these checks on your roof to keep the rest of your home protected.

Clean Your Gutters

Making sure your gutters are clear of debris prevents overflow and damage to your roof and siding. If a gutter is weighed down enough to fall you may be left with exposed areas of your insulation, which can easily be torn or eaten through by pests.

Look for Missing or Torn Shingles

Shingles may be blown from your roof due to high winds and heavy snow or rain. Since your shingles protect rain from entering your home, you will want to replace them as soon as possible.

Look for Holes in the Rafters

If you have noticeable holes in your roof, there is a very good chance that wildlife has found it, too. Schedule an inspection to check your roof for structural damage and determine whether you need to replace the unit or if you can repair the broken section.
