  • ROOF & GUTTERS

    • Screen or cap the top of your chimney to prevent birds/rodents from entering. 
    • Make sure all penetrations (pipe jacks, boot jacks, turbines, skylights) have a good seal
  • LANDSCAPING 
    • Trim your trees back to prevent them falling on your roof when it snows/ices.
