As the weather starts to warm up, give your roof some attention after enduring the winter season. Spring is the perfect time to take care of some residential roofing maintenance tasks that will help keep your roof in good condition for the rest of the year. Get tips on what you can do to keep your roof in top shape from our trusted roofers.
Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and damage your roof. Clear them out every spring. Use a ladder to access the gutters and remove debris like leaves, sticks and dirt.
Inspect for Damage
Take a closer look at your roof to see if there’s any damage from the winter weather. Look for missing or damaged shingles, cracks and holes. If you notice any issues, call a professional roofing company for roof repair.
Check for Leaks
Check the attic for any signs of water damage, like discoloration or mold. If you notice any leaks, have them fixed as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your roof and home.
Regularly Inspect Roof Flashing
Flashing seals gaps where the roof meets walls, chimneys, and other protrusions. Check to make sure your roof flashing is in good condition and not cracked or missing.
Look for Signs of Moss and Algae Growth
Moss and algae can grow on your roof and cause damage. Use a solution of water and bleach to remove any growths.
Check for Loose Shingles
Loose or damaged shingles can cause leaks and damage to your roof. Replace any damaged shingles and secure any loose ones.
Check for Animal Damage
Animals like raccoons and squirrels can cause damage to your roof, so check for any signs of animal activity, like chewed-up shingles or holes in the roof.
