Get a Comprehensive Inspection

It’s that time of year again… We don’t mean April showers that bring May flowers. We mean it’s time to have your spring roof inspection! After the harsher weather of winter has subsided (and it’s seemed to hang on extra long this year), it’s time to have your roofer take a look at everything and check for any sustained damages. Don’t assume that just because everything looks fine from the ground and you don’t see any leaks from inside, that all is fine and good. This may well be true, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry where your roof is concerned. Your roofer will go over the shingles, flashing, and gutters to check for any damage.

Clean Off Debris

Debris such as leaves and branches can really build up over the rainy, snowy and cold months. Leaves left on the roof trap and retain moisture, leading to possible mildew and resulting damage. Leaves also get into gutters and cause dangerous clogging. Sticks and branches that land on your roof during storms can scrape the shingles and cause weak spots. A thorough cleaning of roof debris ensures the integrity of your structure is kept protected.

Control Pests

Spring brings out all the critters that were hiding away during winter. These creatures can build nests on your roof, jeopardizing it with clawing, digging, and waste. For critter concerns, it is best to call in a pest control expert rather than trying to deal with it yourself. You could end up seriously harming not only the creatures, but also yourself.
