3 Tips To Prepare Your Roof For The Spring Season
Now that spring is finally here, many homeowners are going around their homes and getting to work repairing any damage that might have occurred during the long winter months, and making sure their homes are ready for whatever the upcoming season might hold. There are a number of important features around your home that require attention, but one of the most important of these is going to be your home’s roof. Your roof is the most important surface on your entire home, and if it has suffered any kind of damage during the course of the winter, it could lead to a great deal of problems this coming spring. Right now, as we are just getting into spring, is the perfect time to go around your home and ensure that your roof is in good shape and prepared for everything to come. To help you in this task, our team of professionals have taken the time to put together this short list highlighting a couple of helpful tips to ensure that your roof is prepared for the upcoming spring season.
Clean Out Your Gutters
Once the snow and ice clears away enough for you to do so, one of the first things you are going to want to do is ensure that your gutters are properly cleaned out. With all of the melting snow and ice, and the spring showers that are going to be just around the corner, it is important to make sure your gutters are clear of any lingering debris and foliage that might have become trapped there under the snow and is now clogging your gutters. Clogged gutters can also lead to ice dams forming if any water happens to be trapped in them and the temperatures start to drop once again. As soon as you are able, break out the ladder and make sure any lingering debris is cleared out of your gutters, or have a professional do so if you so choose, to ensure your gutters are working properly when the spring rains finally start to come down.
Get Your Roof Cleaned
After it is safe to do so, you are going to want to ensure that your roof is completely cleaned off, whether you do it, or you have a professional come in and do so. If your roof is still covered in debris that might have come down throughout the course of the fall or winter, or you still have lingering patches of snow in areas, now is the time to clean them off so that you can get a good idea of the condition of your roof underneath. Any lingering debris can not only make your roof that much more dangerous to navigate, but can also hide smaller issues when you are having your roof inspected for damage.
Get A Professional Inspection
One of the most important things you can do for your roof to ensure it is prepared for the coming spring is to have it professionally inspected. During the course of your roofing inspection, our team of roofing experts will be on the lookout for any signs of damage that might have occurred during the winter months and could lead to problems in the near future. From loose or damaged shingles, to rust, fungus, algae, or any areas where your roof might be sagging, our team will go over your roof thoroughly and give you a detailed report of any issues we find and what needs to be done about them.
