There are tools that you can use to clean your gutter without standing on your roof. If your gutters are clogged, water will collect and eventually overflow under your shingles and into your roof.

For those who live in a cold climate, you should also be preventing ice dams. You can do this by removing the snow that is gathering on the lower part of your roof. Once and a while, you should also be checking the flashing around vents. If the flashing isn’t secured properly, water will be able to get into your roof and cause a leak.

Leaks are one of the worst things that can happen to your roof. They cause mold and wood rot to form. For the other maintenance tips, watch the video above!
