Roofing Maintenance—Post-Winter Maintenance To Put In Your Spring Calendar

Mar 4, 2014

We can finally say that warm weather is on the horizon! After dealing with one of the coldest, iciest winters that we’ve had in many years, it’s safe to say that we’ll embrace a season that’s devoid of any snow. With a change in the weather comes a change in our lifestyles; now that winter is on its last legs, we need to start preparing our roofs for spring.

Roofing Maintenance—Post-Winter Maintenance To Put In Your Spring Calendar

Listed below are some useful tips that can help you prep your roof for the spring season:

-Get your roof inspected. Check to see if there’s any visual damage, missing shingles, or leaks. If you are unsure about the condition of your home’s roof, consult a professional roofing contractor.

-Check out your gutters. See if there’s any ice or debris that’s blocking any passages, and get them properly cleaned out. Clogged gutters can prevent water from exiting your roof, which can lead to ice dams.

-Check for stains on your ceiling. If you had any leaks during the winter season that originated from your roof, get them sealed before you decide to “touch up” any of the affected areas with paint.

-Add insulation to your attic, and check for heat leaks. These sources of heat coming from your home can have a negative effect on your gutters. For example, they can cause some serious ice dams.

-If you’re planning to get your roof replaced, try to get it done during the spring.
