Now that winter is over and spring has made its presence known, homeowners need to give focus to the health and integrity of their homes. After a harsh winter, there are many quick assessments you may want to make including that of your residential roof. Here at Construct-All USA, Inc. we want to make sure that your roof is in mint condition and have these simple tips to offer.
Tips to Maintain your Roof
We all know that Mother Nature can be quite damaging and hard on your roof. In order to ensure that there is minimal damage to your roof and to tend to any current issues you may have, take these simple precautionary steps.
Clean your gutters – Though this is a task not favored by many homeowners, it surely is a necessary precaution to take, especially if your gutters have no guarding system or are much older. Debris accumulates in your gutters causing clogs. With the abundant rain we often see in the springtime, it is important to remove any debris to allow for proper flow of rain water.
- Examine your roof shingles – In addition to water damage, your shingles can also present with other forms of damage as well, such as cracks, missing pieces, nails that are exposed and even curved edges. Whatever the situation may be, our team has got you covered.
- Examine your flashing – Flashing is present near chimneys, windows, skylights and the likes and should be in tip top condition and securely positioned in place. In addition, you want to be sure the flashing has no rust, and there is no cracked caulking as well.
- Inspect your roof soffits and fascia – Both soffits and fascia are critical to the exterior protection of your home. If you detect problems with either, be sure to reach out to our team of experienced roofers who can easily fix the problem for you.
- Seek out any leaks – If during your inspection, you notice signs of water damage on your roof, then rest assured your residential roof has been damaged and compromised. Be sure to give close focus to discolorations, stains and weakened spots throughout your home, including shingles, siding, soffits, fascia, interior ceilings of the home, and eave overhangs. Your roof is intended to keep any water from getting into your home and if leaks or damage is present, water is sure to make its way into your living space. A thorough inspection can help identify any problem areas.
