Having roof maintenance done during springtime is a great opportunity for you to find out how well your roof may have held up throughout the preceding months. Winter can put any roof to the test, and, without proper care, you may soon suffer the disadvantages of having missing shingles, clogged gutters and other signs of water damage in your home.
Detached or Broken Shingles
As they comprise your roof’s first layer of defense, shingles that are broken or starting to fall off need to be repaired as soon as possible. Missing shingles need to be replaced to prevent parts of your underlayment from being exposed to the elements, too. Pay special attention to shingles that are applied over your roof’s valleys and ridges.
Clogged Gutters and Downspouts
You should also have a good roofing and gutter repair company take a look at your gutters and downspouts. These components need to be clear of debris at all times so they can facilitate proper drainage and prevent water from pooling on your roof’s surface. Note that damaged gutters may expose your siding and foundation to water damage when left unrepaired.
Sagging and Moisture Retention
Particularly if you have a flat roof, ask your roofer to check for signs of sagging and moisture retention. Poor snow management during winter may have affected the structural integrity of your roof, causing some parts of it to sag. Make sure that your roofer inspects your attic as well to deal with condensation-related issues, if any are found, before they get worse.
