Fall is finally “Falling”! As the seasons change, we all have a lot on our todo list. Don’t forget to check the health of your roof, which will keep you warm, and dry this winter!
Winterizing your roof should take place before freezing temperatures, ice and wind arrive. Get your roof ready for winter with this checklist so you can avoid a roofing emergency this winter.
- Clear gutters of leaves and debris
- Repair Loose Damaged or missing shingles
- Check flashing for signs of wear
- Remove and reapply caulk that has crinkled
- Insulate attic to prevent roof icing
- Apply roofing cement under loose asphalt & shingles
- Remove overhanging tree limbs
- Look for warped wood or mold both on the roof and in the attic.
- Inspect and check your chimney
- Keep an eye out for pests, squirrels, raccoons, mice and birds that may see your home as a welcome relief this winter. They can cause extensive and expensive damage.

Braise the Roof!
Bacon-apple braised chicken thighs with apple cider
Crispy bacon and apples add a rich harvest flavor to chicken thighs, and cider mellows the saltiness of the bacon while highlighting the sweetness of the apples.
- 2 strips bacon, cut into small pieces
- 4 chicken thighs
- 1/2 medium apple, diced into small pieces
- 2 cups apple cider
Dice half of the apple. In a large sauté pan, brown the bacon and diced apple until the bacon is crispy and the apples are soft. Remove, the bacon and apples and drain all but a small bit of fat.
Sear the chicken over medium-high heat in the small bit of remaining bacon fat, for 3-5 minutes on each side. Remove chicken and deglaze the pan, with the apple cider
Gently place the chicken back in the pan. Cook covered, over low heat, for 35 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced, turning once. Check that the chicken juices run clear. Remove the chicken and heat the remaining sauce on high until it has reduced to a sauce-like consistency.
Add the chicken, bacon, and apple bits to the sauce. Heat until warm, then serve. Baked apples on the side make a fine complement.
