Spring Cleaning: Roof Checklist

Spring is the perfect time to get your home prepared for the warmer months ahead, and that includes your roof. Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. Over time, the wear and tear of the natural elements can cause damage. As a homeowner, it’s essential to keep your roof in good condition to protect your home and keep your family safe. Continue reading our blog for our spring-cleaning roof checklist.

Check for Damages

The first step in any spring-cleaning checklist for roofing is to inspect your roof for any damages. Look for signs of wear and tear, such as cracked or missing shingles, damaged flashing, or leaks. If you notice any issues, it’s important to address them right away to prevent further damage.

Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Your gutters and downspouts play a crucial role in keeping water away from your home, and it’s important to clean them regularly. If your gutters are clogged, they will not be able to do their job, and the water will then pool up near your home’s foundation. This can lead to flooding or serious water damage. Removing any debris such as leaves and twigs, and flushing the gutters and downspouts with water will ensure that they’re clear.

Trim Trees and Branches

Overhanging trees and branches can cause damage to your roof, so it’s critical to trim them down. This can also help prevent debris from falling onto your roof and clogging your gutters. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend their day raking out leaves from their gutters.

Check for Pests

Pests, such as birds and rodents, will cause damage to your roof and may create a potential health hazard. Look for signs of infestation, such as nests or droppings, and then take steps to remove any pests and prevent them from returning.

Schedule a professional inspection

Even if you don’t notice any serious issues with your roof, it’s never a bad idea to schedule a professional inspection. A roofing professional will be able to identify any potential problems and make recommendations for repairs or maintenance.
