Tips to Tidy Up Your Roof and Gutters

Roofing Company Indianapolis

Clogged or leaking gutters quickly lead to rotten fascia boards, so go ahead and clean them.

In the fall, your yard and gutters see more leaves and limbs littered over the yard. 

If a storm rolls through, you can expect debris-filled lawns. Here are some helpful cleanup tips.

Fallen debris on these areas can cause some serious damage to a home:

  • Roof
    • Wet branches and leaves keep moisture in contact with shingles, tiles or metal sheets on your roof, and this water will find ways to penetrate the roof if left sitting.
  • Gutters
    • Clogged or leaking gutters quickly lead to rotten fascia boards. Clean them with a garden trowel or scoop made from an anti-freeze bottle
    • Once gutters are cleaned, check downspouts with a water hose and blast out any leaves

Trimming back trees in the fall leaves you with less mess for the rest of the season.  Here’s how to get the job done:

  • If a storm hits, inspect trees and powerlines first.
  • Be cautious around damaged trees and broken limbs
    • Prune broken limbs back to a healthy branch
  • For taller trees and thicker limbs, consider calling in a professional — especially if branches are dangerously close to power lines.

Here’s why it’s important to clean up debris from your yard and lawn:

  • Leaves and organic debris can harbor fungi, bacteria and overwintering insects.
  • Leaves can become matted and moldy, smothering the ground.
  • Fallen branches can create traps.
  • When you add all of these to a compost pile, these ingredients will transform into the world’s best plant nourishment.
  • If a storm hits, separate various debris into piles for easy cleanup
    • Vegetation
    • Construction waste

We Back Our Warranty

Because our word is important to us.

We offer industry-leading warranties and stand by them 100%. We also use materials from companies who back their products.

Most of our basic repairs come with a 90-day warranty. For all other repairs, our guarantee starts at 1 year, and in some cases goes up to 5 years. 

Manufacturers’ warranties range from 1 year to 30 years, and some will even come with a lifetime guarantee. And we will always spell out how long we will guarantee our labor in our estimate. 

In the unfortunate event that something does go wrong, we make it easy to schedule an assessment of the work and to quickly arrange for any defects to be corrected. 

If you are looking to file a new warranty claim, simply email admin@chapmanneil.com with your name, the job address, and the issue you’re having, and someone will follow up with you shortly.
