Winter is approaching and with it comes the need to prepare the house for the holidays. While hanging exterior lights may be a priority for some owners, it is a must to have the roof checked and make sure that he is ready for the colder temperatures and storms that blow through Atlanta. For most owners, the need to have your roof checked for leaks and damage is something that they take for granted. Leave the house the most important feature unattended can lead to leaks and unexpected and high energy costs. For many owners, the roof is ignored until there is a problem with a leak or the roof is damaged by a fallen tree during the passage of the storm.
As the christmas lights are put into practice around the roof it is a good opportunity to do a little visual inspection of the property to see if any damage is found. Due to the violent weather passing through Atlanta, a storm can tear off a shingle and leave the roof vulnerable to moisture, leakage of the rain that comes with winter. If a tile seems to be missing or curling at the edges, or damaged in any way, it is time to call in a roof contractor. Atlanta homes that are older and have seen a lot of storms over the years are often susceptible to damage which can not be seen from earth. With air bubbles, or cracks and bumps in the gravel, there is a chance that the water has made its way through the outer protective barrier and can get into the house. Even small leaks can lead to serious damage to property, such as a continuous flow of water that flows into a house through the ceiling and down the walls.
With the ongoing holiday quickly approaching the best time to take a look over the entire roof is when the lights are strung under the soffits and over fascia boards. In addition, owners can have your attic inspected to make sure they have enough insulation to keep your home dry and warm during the cold months of winter ahead. And as a final note of caution, it may also be wise to have a professional tree service in Atlanta, look for any twigs and branches that may pose a threat to the house if a strong storm came. By pruning and to protect trees in advance, many homeowners can avoid the more costly repairs and the inconvenience of a broken branch crashing down on your home during the winter holiday celebration. the
