Spring home projects, including repairing any damage that may have occurred over the winter.
One of the most important parts of your house to check on after winter is your roof. To make sure your roof is ready for spring showers, follow this quick checklist:
Inspect for Damage
Winter weather can cause a variety of damage to your roof, so you need to be sure all the components are in good condition and ready for wet, spring weather. Look for any of the following:
- Missing, ripped or torn shingles
- A large amount of granules in the gutters
- Gutters that are sagging or pulling away from the roof
- Missing or damaged flashing
Inspect for Leaks
It is a good idea to take a look inside your attic. Be sure to use a flashlight and look for any visual signs of water damage. If you see discoloration, swelling or peeling – you could have a roof leak. If you see any signs of leaking, it is worth having a The Roof Guy come out and do a complete inspection.
Clean Off Debris
If there is any debris on the roof or in the gutters, it’s important to clean it off. Leaves and twigs are hosts to moisture, which will eventually and prematurely age your roofing if not removed.
