Spring Tips for a Healthy Roof
Posted April 29, 2020
1. Clean your gutters.
Throughout the winter, debris tends to build up in your gutters and downspouts.
If leaves, twigs, or dirt are clogging up your gutters, they won’t be able to do their job properly when the next spring rainstorm rolls around.
**Proper ladder safety is critical to ensuring your safety.**
Before climbing an extension ladder, make sure it’s leaning at a safe angle. A good way to ensure a proper ladder angle is to use the “4 to 1” rule.
For every four feet of height you climb, the ladder’s feet should be moved one foot away from the wall.
If you don’t want to do a lot of measuring, there’s a simpler way to assess your extension ladder’s angle.
Position your feet against the ladder’s feet and extend your arms forward. If you can comfortably reach the rung in front of you with your arms fully extended, the angle is correct.
If the rung is outside your reach, the angle is too wide (the feet are too far from the wall); if you can reach the rung without extending your arms, the angle is too steep (the feet are too close to the wall).
If you’re using your ladder to access your roof, consider using a bungee cord which can attach to the gutter, wrap once around the ladder and connect back to the gutter.
2. Inspect your shingles.
Check for any shingles that are missing, curling, or worn down.
If you aren’t comfortable getting up on your roof, you can do a partial visual inspection from the ground.
If you are comfortable checking your roof, make sure to use a sturdy ladder and follow the safety tips above.
Look for any shingles with cracks, curled edges, or loose nails.
If you notice large areas of damaged shingles, it may be time for a roof repair or replacement this spring.
3. Document any damage.
If you notice missing or broken shingles, damaged soffit or fascia, mold growth, or any other roof problems, document them with photos.
Your home insurance will probably cover some roof damage, especially after a storm. But first, you need to provide evidence of the extent of the damage.
4. Schedule a professional inspection.
If you notice anything amiss on top of your roof, give yourself peace of mind by scheduling a professional roof inspection.
Our licensed and experienced roofers will be able to help you determine the extent of your roof damage and the next steps to take.
Your roof protects your entire home, so it is worth the investment to make sure it can keep moisture out of your home properly.
We hope these spring roof maintenance tips help you prepare for the new season!
Again, assessing your roof and inspecting it for damage or moisture will help keep it in top condition for years to come.
