Maintaining Curb Appeal During Quarantine

Maintaining Curb Appeal During Quarantine
There were plenty of April showers this year in North Texas. And now that it’s May, our yards are filled with blooming flowers and lively trees, and perhaps some weeds, overgrown bushes, and messy flowerbeds. While America is on shelter-in-place orders, there’s no better time to go outside, soak up the sun, and get your yard back in shape.

While you’re outdoors, make sure your yard isn’t damaging your roof system. Here are some tips to prevent overgrown trees from harming your roof.

The number one tip for yard maintenance is to trim your trees. All of the rain during April makes your trees grow at an exponential rate. And now, they need to be cut back, away from your gutters and roof to prevent animals from scurrying along the branches and ending up on your roof system.

Trimming your trees is a routine task that you might be well versed in. If not, don’t worry. It’s a fairly easy task. Grab your ladder and a pair of tree trimmers. Wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands, climb the ladder, and look for any tree limbs that are encroaching on your roof. Cut them down in small sections to prevent a large branch from falling on your home or landscaping.

Next, clean your gutters. Cleaning your gutters removes everything animals might be looking for after April showers. This is another project that can you can complete on your own. To clean your gutters, grab your pair of gloves and a ladder. Climb your ladder and scoop out any debris that’s fallen in your gutter system. For the downspouts, use a pressure washer to wash out any clogs.

Finally, inspect your roof. While you’re on your ladder, look around your roof for any missing shingles, loose flashing, or other suspicious roof mishaps. If you notice anything, call Joe Hall Roofing.

Keeping your roof system free from debris keeps your roof system clean and prevents any animals from doing any damage to it. If you ever feel uncomfortable performing these tasks on your own, don’t hesitate to call an experienced roofer.

With a clean yard, you prevent animals from turning your roof into an animal playground!


Roof Maintenance During Shelter-in-Place Orders

Roof Maintenance During Shelter-in-Place Orders
Summer break is drawing near. And with the shelter-in-place orders across America and abroad, homeowners are doing a lot of do-it-yourself projects. Inspecting your roof is one of those routine tasks you can do from your home. Here are some tips to help you inspect your roof.

Look for fallen tree limbs. Tree limbs and leaves as well as other tree debris love to fall and make a home on your roof system. Unfortunately, this can harm your shingles and deteriorate your roof faster. Avoid this by making sure tree limbs are safely out of reach of your home’s roof. The last thing you want is for your tree to grow so much that the limbs scape the shingles and loosen the granules.

Leaves inevitably fall as the wind blows. Depending on the type of trees in your yard you could have leaves, pine needles, or other tree debris falling onto your roof system. And a little bit is to be expected. But if you allow too many leaves to collect, they start to trap moisture and cause mildew to form among other problems. Take a rake or a leaf blower to remove them safely and easily.

Inspect your gutters, flashing, and chimney. Gutter damage can happen when too much debris clogs the gutters or when heavy snow or ice builds up. Make sure that your gutters are unclogged by running some matter through them. Unclog, fix loose nails, and keep your gutters in functioning condition. While you’re going around your house looking for gutter problems, inspect your roof for any missing shingles, chimney damage, and loose flashing.

Looking for damage to your roof system can save you from extensive damage that happens after a roof has been neglected. If you find any missing shingles, mold, or damaged areas on your room, call Joe Hall Roofing to get your roof repaired.

Winter Weather Effects on North Texas Roofs

Winter Weather Effects on North Texas Roofs
With the unpredictable North Texas weather, we’ve seen 70 degrees fall to 30 degrees in one day. Add some rain, sleet, and snow in the mix and you’ve experienced winter weather in Texas. As you prepare for the crazy winter weather in Texas, make sure to inspect your roof. Severe winter weather can do serious damage to your roof system, especially if you aren’t doing routine maintenance and inspections. Little problems turn escalate into big, expensive issues.

To help you prepare, read through these common winter effects on North Texas roofs.

Many Texas homeowners know the effects of ice and hail storms all too well. With hail sizes ranging from quarter size to softball size, there’s no predicting what will happen during a storm. While it’s difficult to prepare for a hailstorm, knowing the effects might encourage you to keep an eye out for any small issues.

When hail is strong or large enough, it can puncture your roof system, causing leaks harming the structure of the home. Hail damage isn’t obvious to see, though. An inspection after any storm will help you identify hail damage to metal vents. Look at the shingles for cracking, missing granules, and bruising. If you notice any circular cracks, also known as dimples, that is caused by hail.

Because Texas rarely sees snow, it’s common for homeowners to not know how to properly inspect and manage the roof system after accumulated snow. Heavy snow puts pressure on the roof, which leads to cracks and leaks. While this is more commonly prevalent in older roofs, new roofs aren’t exempt.

Ice, what most North Texans consider a sign of winter, is what most often occurs during the winter months. Did you know that when ice freezes around the edges of the roof, an ice dam results. This blocks water and melting snow from draining off the roof. With all that water sitting on the roof, it can put pressure on the roof system and starts to leak into the home.

Finally, winter weather can damage flashing. Flashing is the sheet metal applied over the roof’s joints. This protects the joints and directs water flow down the roof so it’s not sitting stagnant on the roof. Flashing can be seen around the chimney, vent, skylight, and dormer windows. While the metal used is incredibly durable, harsh winter weather can create an issue. Over time, flashing can pull away from the roof and, if not addressed before winter weather, can cause water damage from accumulated rain, snow, and sleet.

Protect your North Texas home with durable roofing materials installed by a professional. Once installed, your job isn’t done. Routine maintenance and inspections ensure that your roof is ready for the changing weather. From fall to winter to spring to summer, there’s always a threat from Mother Nature. Stay ahead of the game and keep small issues from turning into a large, expensive hassle.
