When And How To Check Your Roof’s Condition

Spring is the best time to give your home a thorough cleaning and inspection inside as well as outside. After the long and wet winter months, our home’s exterior can become dirty with grimes and molds, which can lead to damage or rot. Spring cleaning should include not only cleaning and repairing your home’s exterior features, but also taking proactive steps to ensure your home is structurally sound and ready for the hot summer ahead.

Initial Glance

When it comes to your home’s roofing, there are multiple areas that should be considered when determining its condition. A quick walk around your house can offer a lot of information. Take a look at the edges of the roof to see if there are any obvious signs of damage or disturbed shingles. Anything that is hanging off the ledge of your roof can also be noted for further investigation.

What To Look For On Your Roof

Once the walk around is complete, it is time to grab a ladder and head up to check the roof surface for an up close inspection. While on your roof, look for any cracked, loose, or bulging shingles and any materials that may have come loose.

Examining Gutter Systems

Checking and cleaning out clogged and damaged gutters is also important in ensuring the roofing remains in sound condition. Gutters can become filled with debris that backs up the flow of rainwater into unwanted areas of our roofing, potentially leading to extensive water damage, rot, and mold growth that can go undetected until the problem is out of hand. Regularly checking gutter systems will make sure that the water is properly directed away from your home.

Professional Assistance

If climbing up onto your roof is a bit more than you want to take on, U.S. Shingle offers an affordable“Roof Tune-Up” service that takes care of the inspection and summary of any repairs if needed. In this service, a trained technician conducts a thorough inspection to check for any interior leaking to include your attic, insulation, and ventilation.

This service also includes resealing vents, exhaust fans, chimney flashings, pipe collars, and chimney flashings to ensure these areas are ready for the wet months ahead. The Roof Tune-Up also includes nailing down any shingles that are coming loose, which is a common issue for any age roofing.

Roof Tune-Ups Make A Difference

Checking your roof and home’s exterior yourself is important to continue preventative maintenance, and hiring roofing professionals to inspect your roof’s condition through yearly inspection is a great way to keep problems at bay. Contact U.S. Shingle to schedule your Roof Tune-Up today, and rest easy knowing your home’s first line of defense is in excellent condition.
