Get Your Roof Ready for Spring
Snow, ice, hail and other harsh winter conditions can really wear down your roof. Now that springtime is fast approaching, you should book an appointment with a professional so your roof is prepared for the upcoming season. Below are several tips for homeowners who are ready to get their roof ready for spring:
Tip #1: Look out for mold
One of the first things you should have the roofer contractor do is look out for signs of discoloration, mold and other types of fungus. They can use several products to prevent algae from growing and kill mold before it can spread.
Tip #2: Examine the shingles
They should also examine the shingles to make sure they are still intact and aren’t missing. Old and deteriorating shingles can make your home more vulnerable to leaks.
Tip #3: Remove all the tree limbs
Tree limbs can be very dangerous on a roof, especially if the wind blows and it falls on someone. It can also fall and block certain parts of the house or entryway. After your contractor removes the tree limbs, make sure you trim the trees to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Tip #4: Get rid of the moss
Your roofing contractor will also remove any moss that is on the roof. Moss can cause extensive damage due to excessive moisture.
Tip #5: Remove all the leaves
Leaves are also very hazardous when they are on a roof because they can collect moisture which can eventually develop into mildew. Hire a professional to remove the leaves from the gutters and on the roof during your next spring cleaning.
