Checklist for Roof Spring Cleaning

1We’ve nearly survived another winter season. For those of us in warmer climates, that probably doesn’t seem as much of a victory as it does to those in the coldest, snowiest parts of the country. Not matter where you are though, spring is on the horizon. And who amongst us isn’t looking forward to sunshine and warmer weather?!

As the saying goes, while April showers brings May flowers, the wear and tear on your roof after another winter can leave your roof and gutters vulnerable. Plan ahead with three tips to follow to ensure you’re not facing a leaky roof and major repairs this year.

  • Clean and thoroughly inspect your gutters and drainage.
  • Inspect the roof, checking for loose material, surface decay and the overall integrity (curling, deteriorating, missing pieces) of the shingles.
  • Inspect skylights and interior ceilings for signs of mold, stains or water marks.

After your walkthrough, should you have any concerns about the quality of your roof, it’s best to leave the repairs and replacement to the professionals. Taking care of the issue ahead of time will save you the headache of additional home repairs from a leaky roof.
