3 Ways to Get Your Roof Ready for Spring 

As the winter season is coming to an end this year, it’s important to get your roof prepared for the next season, spring.  

In this article, we share three efficient ways to ensure that your roof is not damaged from the winter and is ready for the spring season.  

1. Check Your Roof Inside and Out

Visually inspect your roof to look for any torn or missing shingles, which are clear signs of roof damage. Also, ensure that all flashings are properly attached.  

Secondly, check your attic or crawlspace to ensure that it is well-insulated. When doing so, look for any signs of water damage including leaks, mold, and mildew.  

2. Clean Your Gutters

It is important to keep your gutters clear from any debris including twigs, leaves, and seeds accumulated during the winter months.  

By cleaning your gutters, you will allow water to flow through smoothly, as clogged gutters lead to potential water damage to your roof.  

3. Trim Tree Branches 

Trees tend to grow faster during the spring season. Therefore, it’s important to keep an eye on any trees near your home, to prevent any branches from digging under your shingles and bend them.  

Additionally, trimming those branches would prevent any fallen leaves from clogging your gutters, which tend to lead to water damage as mentioned above.  

We highly recommend contacting a professional roofing company, if you suspect any potential damage to your roof to avoid them from worsening over time.
