With autumn approaching, the temperature is expected to drop and the weather will start to change. Sam Boak, president of Boak & Sons encourages homeowners to plan ahead for insulation and roofing needs, prior to the coming winter.

Boak & Sons called to repair residential gutters that are heavy and overflowing with water due to clogging.

Exterior contracting services cannot be installed in cold temperatures due to safety and manufacturing standards. Early fall is the best time to inspect your roofing, check your insulation, and clean your gutters in preparation for the coming winter.

The summer has flown by and autumn is fast approaching in Northeast Ohio. It won’t be long until the temperature drops and fall weather rolls in. Sam Boak of Boak & Sons advises homeowners to be aware of their household needs and plan for colder temperatures. This means inspecting residential roofing and insulation to assess the status of the property and engage with an exterior contractor to perform an inspection or deliver needed services.

The roofing season generally lasts through November but is heavily dependent on nice weather in order to complete projects. Exterior contracting services cannot be installed in cold temperatures due to safety and manufacturing standards. Early fall is the best time to inspect your roofing, check your insulation, and clean your gutters in preparation for the coming winter.

“Our project managers provide free estimates to help prevent issues in your home before they begin,” says Sam Boak, President of Boak & Sons. “When you are proactive in home maintenance, you have the time to find the best quality products and services, and the right price. If you wait until you need a service, your decision is rushed, and you may not have the time to find the right contractor.”

If your home was hot over the summer, fall is a great time to check for sufficient home insulation. By insulating your home with the correct R-value, you can save countless dollars in energy savings. Homes built before the 1970's likely have little to no insulation within the walls. If you have an older home, it is likely that the required R-Value in insulation has increased and your home is in need of an update.

In the winter, roofing work can not be completed so any loose, cracked or missing shingles leave your home susceptible to water or ice damage. Clogged gutters will hold water and freeze, becoming heavy. This can cause gutters to pull down from the home causing damage to the gutters, fascia and sometimes the roof itself.
