No doubt your home improvement list is being orchestrated with spring quickly approaching. Since your roof is an essential component of your home, it might be worth setting a day aside where you can get your roof ready for spring, though your roof is one of the many things that often get put on the back burner or neglected all together. You can extend the lifespan of your roof and avoid leaks and early deterioration simply by keeping up on basic maintenance. In an effort to preserve your home’s rooftop, we at Montgomery Roofing would like to relate some important things do.
Evaluate Your Roof
You can utilize binoculars to inspect your roof if you are not prone to traversing the rooftop. You are looking for any signs of damage, wear and tear, or anything out place. For replacing purposes, shingles that are loose, missing, buckling, or curling. Also, look for any signs of wood rot or other excessive deterioration as you check out the flashing and eaves. Ensure your gutters and spots are operational and not showing any signs of rust, or other damage before concluding your inspection. If you need any repairs or replacement, you can plan for them accordingly. An expert can guarantee the work is done right.
Make Needed Roof Repairs and/or Replacements
Before they get out of control, the smallest leaks, holes, cracks, and other such damage need to be repaired. Any small fissures you thought weren’t a concern are now getting larger as summers tend to stimulate intense weather conditions and environments that abuse the rooftops. Make sure to get these repairs done to prevent any unnecessary damage. If you are familiar with roofs and do not mind elevated and unleveled surfaces, only do the repairs yourself. Contact a professional to ensure it is done with skillful precision if you are comfortable with the conditions or do not have knowledge concerning rooftops.
Gutter Cleaning and/or Repair
During your spring roof maintenance, the gutter is equally important. Having adequate gutters can reduce the pressure of the rain that often comes during the spring and summer months. In addition to any clogs, ensure you remove all dirt, mud, sticks, leaves, and any other debris. Also, take care of any rust, holes, cracks, dents, or any other issues you discovered as you thoroughly cleaned the gutters and downspouts.
Tend to Landscape Maintenance
In early spring, your landscaping needs maintenance since it can easily impact the roof. Keep your roof clear by properly trimming, pruning, or removing the trees, shrubs and any other vegetation that crowds the structure. Trees can experience random limbs breaking off the tree and falling limbs can cause costly damage during the spring and summer. You want to at least trim off the branches hanging directly above your roof to avoid any mishaps and catastrophes. Also, maintaining vegetation will also reduce pests from doing any damage to your roof as well.
