Winter can be harsh on your roof. Temperature fluctuations, loose branches, and debris are just a few of the damages during a bad winter. Because of this, it’s essential to inspect your roof each spring. Checking your roof after a heavy winter is extremely important for extending its lifespan and saving you money in the long run. At EDCA Roofing, we want you to make sure your roof isn’t overlooked during your spring cleaning. So, we’ve put together this roofing checklist to help you.
Make sure your gutters are clean
Your first task is to inspect and clean your gutters. Checking your gutters after a long winter is crucial to keeping your roof healthy. Having clogged gutters can cause water to accumulate on your roof, potentially destroying the shingles below or fostering mold growth.
Check for areas of damage
You should always check from the ground or use a drone to avoid the dangers of climbing on your rooftop. Things to look for include:
Debris on your roof
- Missing, blistering, or buckling shingles
- Soft areas
- Mold or mildew
- Inspect your attic
Getting inside your roof is a great way to examine it. Unlike the exterior of your home, the attic offers easy access to moisture patches and other problem areas. Notify a professional if there is any sign of leaks, mold, or moisture.
