Milford NH, August 28—Adam Vaillancourt Roofing Company NH contractor ( notes that Fall is the ideal time to make sure your roof is in good shape to withstand the ice, snow and wind of Old Man Winter.

“You don’t need to be a roofing expert to do the basic checks on your roof,” says roofing contractor NH Adam Vaillancourt. “In the attic, you should look for signs of sagging in the roof deck under the shingles,” he said. “Also look for signs of water damage or leaking such as dark spots or trails where water has travelled.”

According to roofing contractor NH Adam Vaillancourt, another sure sign that your roof needs work is seeing light coming in anywhere from the roof into the attic.

On the outside of the house, roofing contractor NH Adam Vaillancourt says to start your inspection by looking for cracked, curling, split, or missing shingles. If you need to, use binoculars to get a good look at the shingles from down on the ground. Binoculars are also good for looking at chimney flashing, and flashing around vents, pipes and other areas. You can also assess shingle wear by looking for shingle granules (they look like large pieces of sand) at the drain spouts or on the ground where water spills off the roof. A lot of these granules are a sure sign of roof wear.

Finally, if your house has gutters, make sure they are clean and operate well before winter hits. It’s the best way to get that water off the roof and away from the basement when rough weather hits.
