Roof maintenance is important for the condition of your roof. In order to have a sturdy roof, we must perform maintenance seasonally. One of the season that seems to be overlooked is spring. While it might not seem like anything can happen to your roof, but spring is the season of rain and storms. Here are four roof maintenance tips to get your roof ready for spring.
Clean You Gutters
You probably cleaned your gutters at the beginning of Fall, but it’s time to do it again! Gutters that are too full can direct water onto the roof, causing too much water to pool on your roof.
Check Your Roof Shingles
Make sure that there are no cracks or broken shingles on your roof. Summer heat can cause shingles to curl and crack, so checking them in the spring will ensure your shingles are prepared for the summer weather.
Inspect Your Ceilings
If you notice that your ceilings are leaking or sagging, it could mean that there is water damage to the roof and it’s leaking into the attic. Put a bucket down to catch the water and call a roofer immediately.
Examine Your Siding and Window Frames
When we think of roof maintenance, we tend to forget our siding and windows. Check the siding and windows to make sure there aren’t any loose boards or damage.
