Autumn Prepardness- Gutter tips for keeping fall yard maintenance, a breeze.

Oh sweet, sweet summer.. slowly turning to fall in its vivid, vibrant glory.

fall-leave-gpxI stand at my kitchen window each morning, overlooking the sprawling old (& messy) locust tree & my barren patio. I slowly sip my coffee & mentally make a note for myself to get out there and start with the transitional work on the yard from summer to fall. Autumn is my favorite season, but I grow nostalgic for my poor hibiscus that is barely able to force out its blooms, for my daisies that stopped reaching up at the sun weeks ago &, well, my tomato plants which have all but shed their very roots.

The Winter of 2013: Your Roof May Never Be the Same

The buzz around Milwaukee, and nationwide, is the weather. Yes, it is technically spring, but if you look outside today, it doesn’t quite give off that “spring” feel.

The good news is that spring is well underway. Meteorologists have been hinting at 50° weather in our near future. The longest winter, in what only seemed like forever, is almost over.

Spring is the best time to take a visual inventory of your home. Once the snow has melted enough to venture outside, take some time to inspect the exterior of your home for any winter-related damage.

Be sure to check your roofing shingles. Are there any shingles that are lifted and curling, or are there any that are downright missing? These are warning signs that scream winter roofing damage.

Icy roofs can be red flags for improper ventilation or insulation, either in the roofing itself or in the attic. This lack of ventilation and insulation can do some serious damage to your roof and gutters.

Other places to look:
-Roof Staining
-Flashing on Roof – Loose, Detached or Cracking
-Clogged Gutters
-Interior Ceiling Staining

If you notice any of these problems, it is time to call in an expert! Replacing your roof before too much damage has taken effect can save on structural repairs during the installation process.
