With spring in full swing, the first order of business should be to have your roofing system checked for signs of damage from the winter season. Since the warmer months are approaching, this is the perfect time to have your roof inspected for any signs of damage before they worsen. However, you should be aware that not all roofing maintenance practices are beneficial to your roof.
Conducting Repairs After Issues Worsen
One of the worst things you can do is hold off roof repair projects. Granted, roof repairs and replacements can be quite costly, especially during the current situation. However, doing so will only incur you more costs since other parts of your home could’ve been damaged in the process. What could’ve been a simple roof patch-up could turn into a full-blown replacement if left untreated. Make sure that you contact your roofer at the first opportunity you notice something’s wrong with your roof.
Not Cleaning Gutters Thoroughly
Your home’s exterior can be stained or damaged if you have a clogged-up gutter. This is because the water runoff spills over your gutters, instead of exiting through the drain and away from your foundation. In turn, this leaks into your roof and siding, and could even cause your rafters to rot in the process.
When you’re having your gutters cleaned, make sure that it’s done thoroughly by your local gutter contractor to ensure that you can get maximum performance from your gutters.
