Its late fall to early winter in Portland and homeowners are wondering what they can do to make sure their roof is in good shape. The most important is to get the junk off of it. The tree debris will cause water retention and it’s not good for your roof. Debris buildup creates diversions of water; causing unexpected leaks. The gutters need to be cleaned and free-flowing now that the leaves are down. While that’s being done, an inspection can be made to see if all is well as far as functionality goes. Most of the walls, pipes, vents, and chimneys protruding through your roof need to be checked after a weather year like we just had. High heat, high winds, and extreme cold. Man, what state do we live in again?
