Spring Residential Roof Maintenance Tips
Are you going a bit crazy being home all the time during the pandemic? If you’re tired of baking and doing puzzles to pass the time, why not do a little spring roof maintenance?
- Clean your gutters out and make sure they drain properly
- Inspect your shingles
- Check for mold growth on the roof and in the attic
- Clear debris from your roof
- Contact Guardian Roofs for a reliable roof inspection
One of the most important things to do when spring hits is to get out and clean your gutters. Over time, debris build up in your gutters and downspouts. If there are leaves, twigs, and dirt clogging up your gutters, they won’t work properly. The issue with that is it can lead to a build-up of water on the roof, which can lead to water damage inside your home. Thankfully, cleaning out your gutters is easy, and if you can’t manage it on your own, it’s relatively cheap to hire someone else to do it!
The next spring roof maintenance tip is to inspect your shingles and other roofing materials. You want to be on the lookout for shingles that are missing, worn down, or pulling away from the roof. You should also check to see if there are any loose nails or shingles that are cracked. If there is a lot of damage to your shingles, it could be time to get a roof replacement.
While you are inspecting the roof, you should also check for algae or mold. It’s common to find some due to moisture collecting on the roof and there are some easy DIY removal options. However, before you start pouring chemicals, be sure to check with a professional roofer to be sure you won’t damage your roof.
The spring is also the perfect time to clear debris from your roof that accumulated during winter. Clear off any twigs, dirt, moss, or other debris that have accumulated over time. This will keep water flowing properly off the roof and into the gutter, which will protect your home from water damage.
