Spring Maintenance Tips For Your Roof
The point of hiring a roofing contractor to address your service needs is to be able to take the best care possible of your roof. So why take risks with the condition of your roof by failing to get required maintenance?
For starters, let’s evaluate how often you’re getting your rooftop inspected. Did you know you’re supposed to do this twice a year and following any severe weather?
This is especially true if you have an older roofing system. Let’s take a look at some ways in which you could take better care of your roof and get it the maintenance it needs.
Spring Cleaning & More
It goes without saying that an inspection and roof repairs are in order! This is a must.
So what else do you need to know about springtime upkeep for your residential rooftop?
- We can’t stress enough the importance of regular inspections and that means by a professional. Glancing at your roof from the ground with no formal roofing training won’t suffice. Yes, even if your roof is newer because this is also how you maintain the warranty coverage.
- Don’t forget about the gutters. Your gutters play an integral role in protecting your roof and even the very foundation of your home. Keep them clean and repaired. Otherwise, you could end up with damaged roofing, siding, or compromise the structural integrity of your home.
- Let’s not overlook the importance of checking for algae and mold. Once either of these take hold, they can spread quickly. Besides visual aesthetics, these should be removed to prevent potential damage. Mold is especially concerning because it can quickly lead to rot. Humid Florida conditions make our climate ideal for mildew and mold growth.
