With Spring officially here, now is a good time to ensure your roof is in good condition. While your roof may look okay from a distance, there is a possibility your roof has issues you cannot see without a closer look. Spring is a good time to repair or replace your roof if necessary. Here are five things homeowners should do for their roofs this Spring to ensure maximum performance.
Have Your Roof Inspected Up Close
Winters in a state like Massachusetts are typically cold, windy, and brutal. Even after winter is in the rearview mirror, its possible your roof was damaged at some point during the winter. If you are comfortable getting on a ladder and going on your roof, look closely at the shingles or tiles on your roof. If you are not comfortable inspecting your roof on your own, you can always contact a roofing company to do it for you. Often times when roofs are inspected after Winter, missing shingles and tiles are noticeable.
Clean Your Gutters
Gutters are often an afterthought for some homeowners, and that can be problematic. Over a period in time, gutters can get clogged with leaves and backed up with water. A gutter that is left uncleaned can eventually cause damage to your roof.
Be Proactive with Mold on Your Roof
Mold can pretty much grow anywhere, even on your roof. If your roof has mold on it, it is best not to let the mold just sit there. Mold can grow in no time, so a small mold patch on your roof can turn into a large one before you know it.
Cut Down Overhanging Tree Branches
Branches hanging over your roof pose a threat to cause damage to the roof. Branches can weigh more than you may think and if they fall onto your roof it can create holes or chip shingles and tiles. If any branch looks like its only a matter of time before it falls down, its best to be proactive.
