Is Your Roof Ready for Springtime?

Spring in the Pittsburgh and Washington, PA areas in recent years has been riddled  with storms and drenching rain.


Making sure your roof is ready for the Springtime before the rain, can save you a lot of money and costly surprises.


Check around your roof or after the winter to make sure that it is ready for spring rains can prevent major water damages that ruins not only your roof but also the structure of your home.  Minor roof damage can turn into a major roofing problem very quickly during a thunder storm or drenching rain.



Below are some roofing inspection tips for any Washington or Allegheny County homeowner:

  1. Shingles and roofing materials
    – If you have access to see your roof in it's entirety, check for missing, curled or weathered shingles. Missing or worn shingles are going to be areas where water will pool or allow leaks into your ome.  Any curled shingles can blow off easily and create a serious roofing problem. Other roofing, like metal, tiled roof and metal roofing may show signs of wear or cracking. 

  2. Check your gutters
    – It is always a good idea to check your gutters in the spring before the rains begin.  Check for rust spots andleask, as well as clean them of any debris that may have collected over the winter. Clogged gutters or downspouts wmay allow water to pool near the critical edge of your roofing and allow water to find it's way into your home or collect harmful mold.

  3. Roof inspection
