As autumn leaves fall and neighbors start putting up holiday decorations, it's crucial to prepare your home for the upcoming winter months. This essential autumn roof maintenance checklist ensures your home is ready to withstand the season's challenges. At Fasto Roofing, located in Mason, OH, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch roofing services that reflect our commitment to excellence and family values.



Examine Roof for Summer-Related Damage

Summer storms, nesting pests, and windblown debris can cause significant damage to your roof. Inspect your roof for:

  • Missing shingles

  • Warped shingles

  • Missing granules

  • Cracks

  • Shingle punctures

  • Indoor leaks


Consider Roof Replacement

Autumn is the ideal time for roof replacement. Avoid the extreme weather of summer and winter while taking advantage of drier autumn days. Professional roofing companies, like Fasto Roofing, can remove and replace your roof efficiently with minimal weather delays.


Clean and Inspect Gutters

Once the leaves have fallen, clean your gutters and check for:

  • Loose gutters

  • Holes

  • Cracks

Performing these checks ensures your gutters are ready for winter snow and ice.


Trimming Overhanging Trees

Overhanging branches can damage your roof by scraping shingles and allowing pests access to your home. Trim back these branches to prevent damage and pest infestations. If the trees belong to a neighbor, inform them about the necessary work to protect your home.


Attic Inspection

Inspect your attic annually for:

  • Insulation damage or wetness

  • Mold growth

  • Holes or cracks that allow moisture or pests


Hire a Chimney Sweep for Fireplaces

A chimney sweep will clean your flue and inspect for structural soundness, spotting potential leaks, cracks, or other issues. This ensures your fireplace operates safely and efficiently.
