Peak Roofing Has Some Spring Cleaning Tips!
Spring maintenance is important in keeping your roof healthy and extending its life. After those long winter months you should get up there in spring and take care of a couple things.
Here is a list of some Spring cleaning tips for your roof:
1. Have your Roof Inspected
It just makes sense to have a roofing professional come out and inspect your roof each year. They can spot missing shingles, flashing issues, or any other damage that may have occurred during those long winter months. Put it on your list, this could save you money if you catch any problems before they create damage to the inside of your home.
2. Trim your Foliage and Trees
This might seem like a small thing, but trimming your trees that hang over your house can definitely help protect your roof. Over time those tree branches can cause damage to your shingles if they fall or scrap your roof. Be proactive, and take care of it before it becomes a problem.
3. Get Rid of Debris
Lets not forget about anything that has already fallen on your roof! Leaves and debris left on the roof can retain moisture and add weight to the roof causing stress. Leaving debris on your roof can also set in motion mildew and fungi to grow which can cause damage to your shingles.
4. Check the Gutters
Make sure to clean and check those gutters. Gutters play an important role in protecting your roof by diverting water off your roof and onto the ground below. Make a point to clean all the debris out of the gutters so the water has a place to go and the weight of all that debris doesn't weigh down your gutter.
