Leap Into Spring Roof Maintenance


As the cool (or freezing) winter days start letting up, we start embracing signs of spring! For homeowners, this change in season signals a prime opportunity to assess and address any damage or wear-and-tear inflicted upon your homes  and businesses during the colder months. Spring roof maintenance stands should be a high priority task. Your roof is your first line of defense against the elements, and ensuring its health is essential for safeguarding your home’s integrity. Let’s explore why leaping into spring with roof maintenance should be at the top of your to-do list.


Why Spring Is A Good Time For Roof Maintenance


Winter can be especially harsh on roofs, with heavy snow, ice, hail, and freezing temps really putting them to the test. Over time, these extreme weathers can lead to damaged shingles, leaks, metal punctures, or weakened structural components. By conducting thorough maintenance in the spring, we can work together to identify these issues before they have a chance to escalate. Plus, the milder weather patterns of spring make it easier to schedule an inspection and easier for you to tackle some of these maintenance tasks yourself.


Roof Maintenance You Can Do


You never know what your gutters have in store!

  • Clearing gutters and downspouts
    • Grab a ladder, a good friend, and some tunes to take advantage of a warm spring day. Winter debris such as leaves and branches can clog gutters and downspouts, preventing proper drainage. Clear out any debris to ensure water can flow freely away from your roof and foundation, reducing the risk of water damage.
  • Trim overhanging branches
    • Overhanging branches can pose a threat to your roof, especially during storms or high winds. Trim back any branches that are in close proximity to your roof to prevent damage from falling limbs. Also, branches can act as an easy bridge for critters. Birds, squirrels, and ants can all cause harm to your roof and gutters by building their homes on yours!
  • Visual inspection
    • Binoculars aren’t just for bird watching anymore. Step in front of your home and perform a visual inspection of your roof. Do you see any discoloration or varied texture to your roofing material? It may be time to call an Expert.
