    October has come and gone and all that is left are the leaves. As pretty as they are on the trees they become a huge problem if not dealt with regularly. We all know that clogged gutters and/or downspouts can lead to rotten fascia boards and soffits. Overflowing gutters can also cause water damage to structural framing, mold, failing foundations, staining on finished surfaces, and create an inviting environment for wood destroying insects. Leaves stuck on your roof can cause water to back up under your shingles and cause wood rot, wet insulation, and stained interior surfaces. If left for long periods of time, damp leaves will permanently stain the shingle surface. Pay close attention to valleys and roofs with low sloped pitches as leaves tend to bunch up in lower lying areas. Check the gutters regularly during the fall. If you are not comfortable on a ladder then hire a company that specializes in gutter care. Ask for proof of liability as well as workman’s compensation insurance. Following this tip could save you BIG $$.
   Nothing is more relaxing than cozying up to the fire as the fall chill hits the air. Before you have that inaugural fire of the season a chimney inspection is in order. Chimneys should be inspected every year before use. An inspection/cleaning could reveal cracks in the flue, bird, or rodents nests. Consider a chimney cap to prevent nesting and water infiltration.
