Getting Your Roof Ready For Spring

Categories: Residential Roofing

Spring RoofsGet ready to bust out the barbecues, because that good weather is just around the corner. Spring time in Texas offers some of the best
weather of the year, however, there are thunderstorms that come along with it. This means high winds and lots of rain for your roof. With this winter being particularly harsh, checking to make sure your roof is ready to endure the spring weather is a must.

Roofing Surface

Are there any curled, deteriorating, or missing shingles? Any curled shingles can catch the wind and are more likely to be blown off. Any deteriorating or missing shingles are going to be areas of water collection and can lead to leaks in your roof. The same principle goes for other roofing surfaces as well; look for cracks in roof tiles, dented or damaged metal roofing, or erosion spots on asphalt roofing.

Gutter Check

It’s a good time to clean out your gutters and check for any leaks or rust spots. Check your downspouts for clogs and make sure they are clear of debris. Clogged gutter systems can add extra weight and strain to your roof when filled with water and can contribute to the deterioration of the edges of your roof.

Closer Inspection

Calling a professional can be a good idea to check the hard to get spots. Any roof top appliances need to be checked out as well. The winter may have damaged any vents which could hinder circulation and sky lights may have hard to see cracks in the windows. Flashing around sky lights, ventilation systems, and chimneys should be inspected to ensure proper seals around any protruding appliances.
