As spring approaches, you need to ensure that your roof can handle what is coming its way. CK Roofing has created a checklist to prepare your roof for these upcoming months, full of showers and sun. After your roof has undergone cold weather and has been battered with hail, it’s in need of a professional inspection. Your roof protects you and your family from the elements, so its maintenance is a priority. 

Schedule a Roof Inspection

Here at CK Roofing, our experts have years of experience in the roofing industry. We know what to look out for when inspecting your roof, so we always catch problems before they become serious. It’s important to fix these issues before the spring showers arrive, to avoid any leaks. Regular roof inspections are a great preventative measure and ensure that your roof is always working properly.

Clean Out Gutters

Since these spring months are full of showers, it is highly important that your gutters aren’t clogged. Throughout the winter, your gutters likely get full of debris, dirt, and ice. When they are clogged, the water has a hard time getting from your roof down to the ground. Therefore, the water stays on your roof and piles up, which can lead to leaks. 

Examine the Siding 

Your home’s siding affects your roof, just as much as your roof affects your siding. If you notice problems with your siding, there is a high possibility that your roof is having problems too. Make sure to check the siding that is up near the roofline of your home. Let CK Roofing know that your siding is having problems and we will address them!

Clear Any Animal Nests

Humans aren’t the only ones that enjoy springtime and spend more time out in the open. Animals love their sun and warm weather too. And do you know where the best spot for soaking up the sun is? Your roof. With that said, you don’t want these little critters crawling above your heads. They dig, chew, burrow, and create messes. Remove their nests before they make themselves at home. 

Repair Loose or Missing Shingles

If you or your roofers notice any broken or missing shingles, get them repaired as quickly as possible. Any weaknesses in your roofing system need to be taken care of now before the spring showers roll around. If you wait until the showers arrive, there will be less time and flexibility to get the shingles fixed. Not to mention, your home could experience major leaks.

Also, keep an eye out for torn or missing flashing. This is the material that covers your chimney where it passes through your roof. Caulking and weatherstrips also play an important role. If they appear worn down or rotten, replace caulking with a fresh application.
