3 Ways to Show Your Roof a Little Spring Love
Lots of people are itching for a reason to get outside. Why not give your roof some attention? If you are not sure where to start, consider the following three ways you can show your roof a little love this spring.
1. Clean It Off
Dirt and debris collected on the roof can cause the shingles and other materials to deteriorate and become damaged. That same dirt and debris can clog your gutters, which results in a variety of other issues. You should also trim back any branches or trees that hang over your roof. This will keep the shingles clean and the drainage running where it should. If there are any spots where algae or mold are growing, it’s important you have it taken care of by a professional.
2. Have It Inspected
Damage doesn’t just happen in the winter, but chances of damage are higher during bad weather such as snow or hail. Spring is a great time to have your roof inspected for any damage winter weather may have caused. The professionals can catch any issues and have them repaired before they cause serious damage to your home. An inspection can check for holes, loose shingles, missing shingles, damaged flashing, and more.
3. Double-Check Your Insurance
With the current health crisis our world is facing, we have learned that things happen that we aren’t prepared for. Fortunately, you can prepare for roof damage. Take this time to contact your home insurance company to double-check that you have complete coverage for the roof. A good policy will ensure your roof is taken care of should a spring storm blow through and cause serious damage.
