If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’re well aware that hurricane season is upon us. In North Carolina, we are no strangers to hurricanes and the damage they can cause. While you can’t control the weather, you can take steps to help prevent damage to your home.

One of the most important steps to preventing roof damage is routine maintenance. Have our roofing professionals come out to inspect your roof at least once a year. While we’re there, we can spot and replace any loose or missing shingles, which are the main culprits for roof damage during severe weather.

It’s also important to clean your gutters, twice a year at the very least. Again, our roofing professionals are happy to do this for you. Full and overflowing gutters are more likely to fall during severe weather. Full gutters can also cause water damage to your home.

If you have trees in your yard, it’s important to keep them trimmed and to have any dead trees removed. Overhanging trees, no matter the time of year or the weather, can cause serious damage to your roof and your home overall. With this said, be sure to remove branches and any other debris from your yard if a hurricane is in the forecast.

If your roof does get damaged from a hurricane, be sure to give us a call at Housetop Roofing in Raleigh, NC. When it comes to roofing contractors in the Triangle, we can’t be beat.
