The weather might not seem like it, but Spring is here, and it’s time to make sure your roof is ready for the rain that is on its way.
Throughout the winter, snow and ice may have damaged your roof. Large sticks, pine needles, leaves, and debris are also found on roofing after the snow and ice have melted. So, you can inspect a newer roof from the ground by using a pair of binoculars. You can get on your roof to inspect it and remove debris. But be careful and have another person with you. If you feel it is necessary to climb up on your roof and do not feel comfortable doing that, most roofing companies offer roof inspection.
If debris remains on your roof, you risk problems that can cause water damage inside your home. Clogged gutters and venting stacks will likely cause water damage or excessive moisture in your attic.
Check for Roof Damage
Check your roof for missing shingles or shingles that are buckling or appear to be very worn. Flashing that is missing or torn may need some attention. You do not want rainwater to get into places it should not be.
Check Your Attic for Holes
Taking a look at your roof from inside your attic is simple and can save you a lot of future headaches. You will be looking for any dripping water, standing water, or dampness. Check also along your roof’s peak.
Fix Any Damage
Some roof damage will be simple enough to fix on your own, but get it done even if you choose to hire a roofing professional. A little bit of maintenance to your roof goes a long way in extending the life of your roof and shingles.
