Spring has sprung, and we couldn’t be happier! This time of year has always been associated with cleaning and rejuvenation. As the days get longer and brighter people across the country start tidying up and refreshing their homes. Don’t just stop at cleaning the inside of your home though. After, the crazy winter weather Texas experienced this year your roof is sure to need some TLC too. Here’s a list of some general maintenance you should have done on your roof, and some steps you can take as well to extend the life of your roof. Roof care is an important part of the spring cleaning process that is commonly overlooked, but no worries. Now, you have CK Roofing looking out for you.
Each year, you should hire a roofing contractor to come out and clean off your roof. Over time, debris can build up and cause mold and mildew. This can get costly if you wait too long, because the damage may become too extreme and require involved repairs or even a roof replacement. It’s easy to avoid this by regularly scheduling professional maintenance each spring. While we’re up there we can check to make sure everything else is in order. First, we’ll wash off the buildup of grime with a roof-safe cleaning solution. Then, we can easily conduct a quick inspection. Sometimes flashings may pull away from your chimney or roof and create small holes, just the right size for water and bugs to slip through. This is a quick and easy fix, and something we can do during a basic roof inspection.
It’s important to clear your gutters. Spring in Texas can get pretty stormy. You want to ensure that water is flowing off your roof and down the spout system effectively. If your gutters are full they may get too heavy and start pulling at your roof.
Check Your Attic
This is actually something you can do yourself, and you should try to do it seasonally. Just check for signs of mold, mildew, and water damage. Oftentimes, the smell or appearance of your attic is one of the first indicators that your roof is in need of repair. Once you notice a problem, contact the expert roof repairmen at CK Roofing right away. We can pinpoint the cause and take measures to resolve the issue.
Cut Away Branches
Dead branches may fall on your roof in the winter or blow there due to high wind speeds in the springtime. Try to keep up with trimming trees, bushes, and hedges, away from your home so this doesn’t become a problem. Smaller branches may impede rain runoff or cause mold. Larger branches could actually poke holes in your shingles and cause a roof leak.
