Spring Roof Check – What to Look for

Categories: Roof Maintenance

Roof InspectionDo you know if your roof needs repair? Many of us don’t know the answer to that question because we have never thought to look, but Peak Roofing & Construction believes it’s crucial to have a roof check-up every spring and fall to ensure your roof is ready for harsh weather.

Signs of Roof Damage

While it is recommended that you hire our professional Frisco roofers to do this inspection for you, many homeowners prefer to look themselves before calling. If this is what you choose to do, make sure you know the signs of roof damage:

  • Discoloration
  • Black streaks or spots, indicating the growth of algae
  • Cracked, curled, or missing shingles, indicating the end of your shingles’ life expectancy
  • Excessive amounts of shingle granules in your gutters
  • Water damage on the interior walls of your house
  • Trees growing over the roof
  • Debris on roof
  • Holes in the roof where animals could get into your attic space

If you notice any of these signs of damage, it’s time to call a roofing contractor to conduct a further inspection.

Gutter Maintenance

Inspecting and maintaining your home’s gutters is just as important as roofing maintenance. Gutters are crucial to the health and protection of your home because they channel water away from the base of your home. But gutters often experience a buildup of debris that can cause interruptions in water flow. If this is left alone for too long, damage in the form of sagging or the gutters tearing away from the roof can and often do occur.

It’s important to clear out your gutters when you inspect your roof. This could mean removing leaves, rinsing the gutters with a hose, or removing pests and their nests. However, we encourage you to always remember and practice ladder safety.

If damage does occur to your gutters, our roofing company provides expert gutter installation to replace this vital aspect of your home.
